  1. I LOVE ballroom dancing. You simply can’t be sad or annoyed or anything negative when you’re gliding about the floor. We taught our kids early and now everyone dances. LOVE IT!!!

      Chris, Thank you. Since my husband doesn’t dance, it was never something I looked into. I’m glad I got a little glimpse into it, though.

  2. my husband and I gave it a shot several years ago – it was the middle of Summer and really hot and we weren’t very good. I think gracefulness is not my middle name. I have a deep envy for those who twirl effortlessly across the dance floor.

  3. What a divine post! Jack Jones… There’s name from a distant universe! Your charming post is just what I needed, today. It reminds me of the Richard Gere, JLo movie, “Shall We Dance?” Think about all the hidden world behind doors that we pass by each day and don’t give a thought about the lives and loves behind them. Thanks, Brenda

  4. I so, so envy people who can do this. I have taken lessons and nothing comes less naturally to me, with the exception of golf. It just looks so incredibly freeing. Possibly I’ll try again.

      Susan, I suspect like anything in life, it takes practice. I’m glad I went and would go again. Its something that looks like fun, once you know what you’re doing.

    Great story, Laurie! Last year I tried fly fishing for the first time. I have fished since I was a kid and have always enjoyed it but fly fishing was another world to me. It seemed to complicated to enjoy. It was very frustrating in the beginning but I took 3 lessons and now I am hooked. I can’t believe I sat on the side lines all these years. I guess maybe that’s my ballroom dancing.

      Erik, As we get older, I think its good to try new things. You never know when you’ll walk through that next important portal. So glad you found a hobby you love.

    The hubs and I took classes years ago. It was fun but we did not keep up. I recently started aerial yoga! I am a long-time “traditional” yoga student and I was interested to see how it would be. I am totally HOOKED! It is like being a kid on the monkey bars.
