Re-match Soccer Game against BBELS! May 22nd

Yesterday afternoon we had our highly anticipated re-match against BBELS.

When we played last time it was a disappointing loss for Lexis. After a close game, BBELS scored the winning goal in the final 5 minute tiebreaker.

IMG_2563

Enrique was our designated captain for yesterdays game. He took it upon himself to get us motivated by practicing a New Zealand haka. The haka is a type of ancient Māori war dance traditionally used on the battlefield, as well as when groups came together in peace. You will often see New Zealand sports team perform a haka before a game.

Great enthusiasm from the students! I had stitches from laughing so hard!

The students had some warm up exercises before the match started and lucky for us we also had the loudest support crew!

With all of our shouting we managed to attract a new friend.. The adorable Cookie!!

He was definitely ‘Team Lexis’!!

The match went on as the sun began to set.

IMG_2631

After 15 minute quarters we were all exhausted. Thank you Captain Enrique for keeping us enthusiastic! Unfortunately it was another close game, with BBELS taking the win with a final goal in the closing minutes. The final score was 4-3. Hard luck Lexis.

It was still a great afternoon. Thank you to everyone who played and came down to support!

Salsa & Sangria! May 17th

Friday afternoon we strapped on our dancing shoes and got funky for Salsa & Sangria with Danni from Sassy Salsa.

IMG_2475

We started off with a warm up to get us into the swing of it…

And then we got straight into learning a short ‘reggaeton’ routine…

Which then quickly escalated into an epic group dance circle…

Now everyone was well and truly warmed up and ready to enjoy some sangria! I made the sangria following a simple recipe of red wine, orange juice, a table spoon of maple syrup and diced apple, strawberries, orange and lemon.

Our lesson continued learning some salsa moves and practiced with a partner.

IMG_2469

Thank you everyone for such a fun afternoon! I am already looking forward to our next dance lesson. 🙂
