Why You Should Dance with Partners of all Levels

Why You Should Dance with Partners of all Levels

I remember my very first practice party. I had been learning how to social dance for two months. I felt like I was ready to test out my new skills at the studios Thursday night dance party. I was having a great time dancing every dance, meeting new people, that is until I danced with one woman who was considered an advanced dancer. Halfway through dancing our waltz, she stopped and asked me if I knew what I was doing because I am not dancing right. My timing was off, I wasn’t leading her right, and she didn’t like it. So she stopped in the middle of the dance and walked off the floor. I was crushed.

“Most people seem to think that good dancers are born.  But all of the good dancers that I know have been taught or trained.”  ~Fred Astaire

One of the best things I ever did for myself was learning how to Ballroom Dance.  It has completely changed my life, and I can’t imagine what it would be like if I had not taken the chance and went to my first dance class.  I was 26, and I had never been to a dance class. That first class was fun, intimidating, scary, and incredibly addicting.  I knew right then and there that I had found my passion and that I would do whatever it takes to keep dancing.
