Dancing Shoes!!

Sunday 29th April, 2007 - 0130 hrs

Now what's so special about this date and time, is that what you ask? Well, to any other person it is just another midnight hour.... but for my, it was a different night!! Now this may seem stupid, but I always held this belief that I cannot dance...... and thus would never be found dancing even if all my friends would hit the floor. Used to avoid the discs too.

On this particular night, a friend calls me up and asks me to join him another friend of our as they were about to hit AREA 51 at Pancards Club, supposed to Asia's largest disc..... Bolt from the blue!! Me and a disc??? And then I was like, "what the heck, let's give it a try!!" And so I left for the disc along with my two friends.

It was 1:30 in the night, when I stepped into that disc. The feel and the music got to me!! Not bad!! I liked it........ But still not ready to hit the dance floor...... My friends being the footloose fellas that they were hit the floor immediately........ But soon enough managed to pull me onto the floor and then it was a world which only spun around as I got into the groove........... Later on I was like "God!! Must have been making a fool of myself out there!! Sheesh!! What was I thinking??" As if on cue..... (I was surprised for a moment, after all I was just thinking!!) my friend turns around and asks "Why the hell don't you dance?? You are damn good!!" Surprise.......... surprise............ No one was more surprised than me.... for this was coming from an amazing dancer!! IS he pulling my leg?? Later, it got confirmed that he wasn't pulling my leg.......... he was being honest!!

Well........... we called it a night at 0330 hrs, but by then my shyness and the mental shackles involved regarding dance was broken.............. Guess, I have to buy a pair of dancing shoes now!!

What do you say guys??

Dancing is freedom! Even if people don't "approve" of your dancing style, you should continue to do it, if it makes you feel good! But I'm glad you had a good time!
