For decades musicians have extolled marijuana’s benefits. From Louis Armstrong to Snoop Dogg musicians claim it enhances their creativity. I have a few musician friends that smoke dope every time they do a gig and they say their music is the better for it. It seems logical that if pot is good for making music it should be beneficial for dancing. To find out I got a sample of legal medical marijuana. It’s easy to obtain in the state of Arizona. So, nothing I describe in the following is illegal. I took a small dosage of edibles but easily enough to feel high (est 7 mg). I then went to the studio to take a group lesson and then dancing afterwards. The pot hindered my learning of the lesson and I forgot things much quicker. As for the dancing – none of the ladies I danced with said I was dancing better than usual but none of them complained either. While I definitely related to the music differently, and probably responded differently in my dance, it was not at all obvious that pot made be a better or worse dancer. I tried two more times with equally mediocre results. It seemed to me that higher doses produced worse dancing. My performance in ballroom seemed to be worse than swing. Once I went freestyling in a bar and it did seem that the ladies responded very good – but of course that is probably just because I was less inhibited. In conclusion I felt that marijuana had more negatives than positives when it comes to dancing. I’m curious what others have experienced while mixing marijuana with dancing.
