A couple of weeks ago we had our first Salsa Night at Pringle Creek Community. After clearing out the center section of Painters Hall our wonderful grounds keeper/professional dancer/DJ/all around renaissance man, Paco, taught the group of 15 or so neighbors and friends of Pringle Creek some basic Salsa steps. Starting with the basic front-to-back and side-to-side steps we gradually got into to the rhythm of the dance and we began to move around the floor looking like we had a pretty decent idea of what Salsa dancing is.
The wonderful thing about the events that we have held at Pringle Creek is that even though we generally have a group of people who start of the evening not knowing one another, the group dynamic has always been overwhelmingly supportive and engaged, an excellent space to step (or, perhaps, Salsa?) out of your comfort zone and try something a little different. While we may not be ready to go on tour just yet, the evening was full of fun, laughter, and I would say some pretty decent entertainment for our one or two spectators.
