It was a fascinating Sunday morning for me at Frontier Community Centre. I spent my morning enjoying the time watching at all the different types of dances.
It was hard to miss the colourful flyers which was pasted in the glass display beside the lift at my house. Even though I did not have much interest in dance, I felt compelled to drop in to the event.

When I arrived, there was such a cheerful atmosphere as the entire hall was full of people doing the line dance, each person shouting out an enthusiastic cheer every now and then as they danced along.
There was supposed to be a bachata demonstration but I missed it while stealing a moment to go grab a drink. But I was consoled while watching the beautiful salsa dance. It was most impressive! They were dancing and spinning so fast! At one point, the male dancer balanced the head of his female partner on his foot in less than a minute. I was completely astounded.
I like her dress. I like her legs even more. Can I have it?
Later on, there was a modern dance and hip hop display performed by youths. While showing mum the video that I took, she commented at how naturally flexible the kids were. We’d probably be warded into the emergency room should we do something similar 😛
One of the things that crossed my mind while watching the youths dancing was how heartened I was that these kids were doing something positive with their time doing things that they are passionate about, rather than indulging in negative influences.
Dance – Not only for youths!
After the kid’s performances, came the Bollywood dance exhibition. Indian dances are so exciting with the drum instruments in the music. What would complete the exhibition if there were a bhangra dance and workshop at the same time 😀
One of the highlights were the new vogue dance exhibition and mass workshop. This dance, having originated from Australia, was a repetitive dance of a couple of steps – it looked easy enough to pick up, but I couldn’t help laughing when we all tried to do it ourselves – we were all over the place. Hehehe! 😀
All in all, it was a surprisingly lovely morning for me. Apart from the dance, it was really nice to see all those smiling and cheerful faces around me. Radiance all around. And it was beautiful 🙂
