I’m going to have a lot of great dances out there that are just gonna be a hundred times better…

because I came out here and was taught by the best


Maintenant je me sens plus à l’aise pour m’adapter à différents partenaires.

Je me dis “tiens, c’est encore un danseur différent, il va faire ça différemment, mais il n’y a pas de souci, je vais pouvoir m’adapter”.

I’m gonna be more comfortable dancing in milongas and socials, so that’s awesome.”
