Ready to go celebrate.

Something you should know...
I joined Zapin Wangsa
to a promise I made...
...and I must admit that the first few trainings
I had the attitude of "lets get this over with"
I used to stereotype malay
dance and secondly,
I never really tried dancing before...
After a few more trainings, I realised that I'm beginning
to interact with the other dancers and as a result, we
got closer to each other...
Nearing to the performance, we eventually got serious
and nervous minutes before the dance...
A huge sigh of relief from us and glad to know that the dance
was great and we realised that it was all about having fun on stage...
To the people who choreographed the steps and helped with the trainings,people like Aizat, Izzah and Sue...To the dancers, whether or not you performed, you are still part of the team...and finally, hope that you all will think of it as our first performancetogether... with yet more performances to come... :)
ZAPIN WANGSA !
