BallroBallroom Lessons – Ballroom Dancing Classes That I’m Taking
I’m taking ballroom lessons I can think of nothing worse. Me, in ballroom dancing classes, bumbling and stumbling all over myself. I can’t even dance! Well, that’s not entirely true. i did have some time in dancing school when I was seven years old. Ya’ know the one? They dress you up (yes, a little kid) in a suit and latin dance lessons tie, and the women in white gloves, and make you walk across the dance floor and say “may I have this dance”? Ouch! It was enough to scar me nearly permanently, and permeates my first experience with ballroom dance instruction.
And now, me, and my permanently scarred self, find myself once again in ballroom dance class, thinking of taking ballroom lessons! It’s not that I don’t think dance is great. It’s not even that I think it’s not an important skill to have. It is! I realize this. I’m simply not looking forward to the bumbling dance moves, stepping on my partner, and generally making a total ass out of myself that learning to ballroom dance may entail. Regardless, I’m going to share with you my process, my tools, and my (hopeful) progress.
I am most looking forward to the Latin dance lesson, as I think Latin ballroom dancing is downright cool (and sexy, and hot). I’d be lying if I told you that I didn’t notice that the women doing Latin are really … quite pretty. Dazzling might be a better word. I’m hooked, and even if my waltz isn’t the best, or my foxtrot isn’t the coolest, I’m certain that my salsa and cha cha cha is going to rock the world.
Learning to dance is hard for everyone, and I can enjoy that thought as I begin learning how to dance. Everyone is in the same place! However, I’ve got the internet, a killer ballroom 10 blocks away, and a wallet full of cash, so perhaps I’m more prepared than some. Follow me on my journey! I’ll make sure to share all the mishaps along the way, and all the great stuff I find to help. So, shall we dance? Want to join me in my Become king of the ballroom dancing classes ballroom? I certainly hope so! In order to learn how to ballroom dance, it would help to take several different types of ballroom lessons.
