Hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful Sunday weather; it seems (fingers crossed) that spring is finally upon us, and Ottawa folks welcomed it with open arms. The streets in centre town were packed with people excited to wear shorts and t-shirts, having their first afternoon beers on a patio this year.
I've fallen a bit off the cart with my weekly blogging, but not for lack of things to do or write about, but more to focus on the film. The first cut of my film on Cuban rumba is almost ready; I'm thrilled (and relieved). Thrilled, not just about the content, although I'm happy with it, but more because I was never quite convinced I'd actually get to this point. When I returned from Cuba with 20 hours of footage, over a hundred of clips and sound files, all I felt was overwhelm. I guess the lesson from all of this is a simple one. How to build a house? One brick at a time. The first viewing is at SAW video on May 14, 2015; details to follow.
After two successful Bailando parties (March 13 & April 4), the next is scheduled for May 9th! Back is the 1.5 hour kizomba social (with DJ Addiction from A2K) followed by a three hour salsa social. Check us out from 4:00 pm till 8:30!
