Garage Dance Party

I’ve been working out at a small gym near my apartment in Envigado.  Knowing I was dancer, Hermes, one of the personal trainers, invited me to go to a garage party up the hill from Poblado.  The club is at a place called Auditorium Plaza.  It is basically a warehouse that’s set up for huge parties.  This night the club had a 20,000 COP cover and was invite only.

We showed up around 10pm, and we met up with Kelerman, the dance instructor from the gym, and some other friends.  We decided on a bottle of tequila for about 80,000 COP for four of us at the table.  I had never drank much tequila before, but it ended up all right.

Soon, I realized that Kelerman had disappeared, but I never got around to asking where he might have gone.  About 15 minutes later, I found out.

Kelerman...the performer!

It turns out that Kelerman was one of the performers for the night.  Once they got on stage, the whole place turned into the most fun dance party I have ever been to.  Most of us were dancers or dance teachers, so our whole group ended up looking like a music video.  We all could just dance well together and pick up on when we were changing rhythms or style.

The DJ played a mix of techno, 80’s, and a few new hits.  Most the night was spent with crazy-sexy dancing, tequila shots (sometimes body shots), and a few of us dancing on the tables.

I love relaxing and enjoying the view of life. Whether the view is from the top of a BASE object, or from my balcony in Envigado, Colombia. I love life when it's up, and I'm trying harder to love life when it's down as well. My biggest loves in life are (in order!) Family, BASE, Music, Boys that play music, and Alcohol. I get along with everyone that doesn't take me too seriously, and with people that are ok with the fact that you should disregard almost anything I say when I'm drunk!

  1. Hey Holly! Looks like so much fun.

    My hubby and I are going to be in Medellin in mid-April and would love to connect, if you’re interested! We’re currently down in Neiva and are spending a few weeks at his family’s finca, then off to Cali, back to Bogota, then Cartagena, then finally Medellin. Anyways, if you’d like to get together next month, definitely let us know! I think we’ll be there April 18th or so.

    • Hi Amy,

      Thanks for checking out Medellin Living. As you might’ve seen already, Holly is heading back to the USA in late March, so it looks like you’ll just miss each other. Hope you continue to enjoy Colombia!
