“The Af­ter be­ing called out in our last team work­out, I knew I had to bring my A-game. My friends of­ten say I dance like a white girl, and I was out to prove them wrong. en­ergy was high in the stu­dio, as the mu­sic blared through the speak­ers. I was ready. Our first teacher, ‘Reeny’, took us through a few gen­res, my favourite of which was Afrobeat. Did I drop legs! I thor­oughly en­joyed ev­ery mo­ment of it and did not want to stop. The moves were quite fa­mil­iar and I worked up quite a sweat. So much so that my bot­tle of wa­ter was fin­ished be­fore we got to half­way through the ses­sion. Our sec­ond teacher, Sa­man­tha, was a burst of en­ergy as she took over the seg­ment I an­tic­i­pated the most – stiletto sexy. As we slipped into our stilettos, Bey­once’s Hold Up started. I screamed out, “That’s my song!” The base of that song moved me to the dance floor and it was time to get my sexy on. As the songs echoed through the room, I felt the burn in places I for­got I had mus­cles, re­mind­ing me I was still work­ing out. The smile never left my face es­pe­cially when I looked in the mir­ror and re­alised I wasn’t as stiff a 4X4 (winks).
