Last February, after years of wondering what ballroom dance lessons would be like and faced with yet another “worst winter on record” with weeks of inactivity (I am not a cold-weather girl), I started talking to friends and family about trying ballroom dancing. I wanted to gauge reactions, get recommendations, and hopefully get someone to try it with me.
I did the research, compared websites, and talked for weeks with my BFF. She was like, “Really you want to do this?” with an astonished tone of voice. We talked about some of the many benefits of ballroom dance: Improved physical and mental health, building confidence, and meeting new people, and eventually she caved and agreed to come with me.
I juggled our busy calendars and called TC Dance Club – Appleton to schedule our complimentary first lesson. A friendly staff member patiently found alignment with our availability and Jared, our professional dance instructor’s schedule, and voila, WE WERE COMMITTED.
Coming soon…my first entrance.
