hi everyone, it's my first post and I hope to hear from you with any advice and tips you can offer a newbie. A few years ago I was invited to a salsa club by a new friend who is a great dancer. I on the other hand was an absolute beginner with no knowledge of how to dance salsa at all. The music was incredible and somehow I felt confident enough and ended up dancing for most of the night with a few partners. I tried to follow the best way I could and I was lucky to have danced with very nice partners. I went back a few more times as a complete newbie but following that my career and personal life made me take a long break from salsa. Fast forward a few years and I decided to re-visit the scene with proper instruction this time around. I have taken about 6 classes and 1 private so far and I never would have imagined just how difficult learning salsa really is. At this stage I would like to start going to a few socials and clubs to practice however, I am feeling a lot of beginners anxiety and fear that I will be rejected somehow (kind of hard on myself). Any tips on how to overcome that initial anxiety and nerves? Advice for a newbie follower?
