Salsa Dancing at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Last Friday night I trekked to the Philadelphia Museum of Art for Art After 5. I wasn't sure what the act was, but I wanted to go. Nonetheless, I was so happy to hear it was a salsa band! They were amazing and while I can't dance, I grooved in my seat.

One of the lead singer's friends was there. We were talking before the show and he seemed nice. When the music started, that ceased, until after I tried dancing. He scooted over and whispered in my ear: "You don't have to be embarrassed to dance. Just move and have fun, as long as you have fun, that is all that matters." We whispered back and forth and he mentioned he was too shy to dance. I think I might have to write a story about this. It was fun.


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    That salsa band sounded great and I enjoyed the video. Those little girls are the cutest, aren't they? When we are very young we are uninhibited. It's a shame most of us eventually lose that feeling of freedom to express ourselves, for any number of reasons. I'm glad you took that friend's advice. As long as you are enjoying yourself and aren't stepping on somebody else's toes (literally or figuratively) you should just go for it and dance.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi Shady,

      Yes! I loved watching the little girls and I wish I had their fearlessness. I didn't end up dancing - I just watched the older women move and I left at 7 to eat dinner.

      Next time, I might have to try it. It really did look fun. Sometimes I do worry that people will make fun of how I move. Maybe I shouldn't care.

      Thank you, dear friend. I hope you enjoy the rest of your week as well, Shady.
