Going to the Doghouse last night was fun. I actually enjoyed it a lot more than I did the few times I went last summer. Plus, I danced with something like a dozen complete strangers, which is a lot for me. I think I'm getting better at that, or I was for a while last night anyway. And I had several remarkably fun dances following Justin (thank you, Justin!). I think I enjoy following far too much, considering I usually have to lead. :-) Oh well. As I've noticed before at the Doghouse, I feel like my swing dancing improves simply by being there, around lots of other good dancers. Some of that is from watching other people (some of them are just fascinating to watch) and some is probably just the energy of the place, and the fact that it's nothing but swing all night. I need to start going there more often. Like the hustle club dances, it's sad not to have any waltzes but at least I like swing a lot more than I like hustle.
