Have you ever struggled with dancing?  Brian did, and he broke through the wall!!

Brian was one of those for whom dancing wasn't his first love.  He admitted he came to Line Dance classes to keep his wife, Kristi, company, and support her interest (what a sweet man!!).  He wasn't too thrilled with the whole thing but he and Kristi have been part of the Geneva core group that have regularly attended classes, session after session.  I've gotta say I'm extra impressed with Brian because this past week noticed  something had happened:  that wall that we all hit eventually was a thing of his past!  He was dancing, and well – and ENJOYING HIMSELF!!!  It was quite heady to watch, to say the least.  Congrats, Brian – and may we all be encouraged by your story!  No matter how easy or difficult dancing is for each of us, there seems to be a Point of Decision (aka "The Wall") where we decide, consciously or subconsciously, that this is going to work and it's not so bad anymore.  THEN things start to get really fun!  I've seen quite a few of you hit and break through the wall, and I look forward to seeing more of you "Arrive And Thrive."  It's so exciting for us all!!!!!!

Meet the Geneva Core, L-R:  Amy S., Brian, Susan, Anthony.  In front:  Kristi (in the white top), Biker Amy, Christine

Speaking of thriving reminds me of lessons – in addition to new line dance class sessions starting next week in Wheaton & Warrenville, November brings new couples classes too (no partner needed – men, here's your chance to meet the ladies who really want to dance!):

  • Patterns 2 (more complicated partner pattern dances, including Fourplay) in Wheaton on Mondays
  • West Coast Swing (very IN, nowadays!) in Warrenville on Tuesdays
  • Double Two (the easiest country couples dance) in Warrenville on Thursdays

Check out dancewithjanet.com/couples/couplesdanceclasses for details on couples dancing, and http://dancewithjanet.com/teachingschedule for complete details on upcoming classes.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of you break through your walls!  See you on the dance floor!
