I am not much of a dancer, but I heard that the festival of dance from Madrid is worth going to. Afterall, it doesn’t hurt to learn a thing or two from the most talented latino dancers in the world. Or if you don’t go there to learn something, at least you will have a nice time at the festival.
And since I had lots of free time and nothing to spend my money on, I decided to give it a try. If you think about it, a dance festival sounds fun, right? I arrived in Madrid a couple of days before the festival, because I figured that since I’m going to go there, I might aswell visit the city. And I can say that it was a good idea, because I met some Romanian people over there. I wasn’t expecting to make new friends, but I am glad I did.
And they said that they were there for the festival aswell, so I was pretty happy that I wasn’t going to go all by myself. Now that I think about it, it would have been boring if I went there alone. But boring isn’t actually the word that I would use to describe my experience in Madrid, because I actually had a lot of fun. I also ended up learning a few moves. Truth be told, I never found salsa or flamingo that interesting! There were a lot of world-wide known dancers as well and they seemed pretty nice with the people around them, but I was too shy to go and say hi or ask for an autograph. Now that I look back, I feel quite sorry that I didn’t, but I hope that I will get the chance to meet some of them at the festival next year. It’s something I’m really looking forward to.
