Let's face the music

M and I have signed up for dancing lessons.

(If you're Polish, no it's not in preparation for our wedding, stop asking, you guys are obsessed.)

There's just something very alluring about the prospect of being taught how to float around a dance floor, doing the right steps in the right places, no bruised toes and a smile of contentment on your face.

When we went to the school to sign up, we were told it was fully booked but that a new class would be starting in a couple of weeks. The woman behind the desk then rattled through list of the dances we would be taught. I know it's not culturally sensitive of me to say this, but there is something very funny about a Pole saying 'rock and roll' with rolled rs.

So, we'll be starting the week after next. The next thing will be to find a place where we can put our lessons to good practise...

Sounds fun, what other stuff are you going to learn? Does Poland have its own version of what everyone else knows as Russian dancing? Or is that considered too Soviet?

Er, let me see there was waltzing and tango, foxtrot? or am I making that up?

There is traditional Polish dancing but I'm not going to learn that... I've seen it and it actually looks like a lot of fun (they also get to wear cool skirts and even cooler boots)but not this time.
