When I was a child, I was mesmerized by dancing. I could (and did) watch musicals for hours on end, and I was simply in awe of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. I daydreamed of breaking into a choreographed song & dance routine when something noteworthy occurred in my daily life – after all, that’s what happened in the movies, so that was what could happen in real life, right? I wanted to join in the dancing, with all my heart. Only one problem – I didn’t know how. And with finances being what they were in my childhood, it was clear I would never be the next Judy Garland. Dance lessons at a studio were not in my future.
I kept hoping for another way. I remember thinking, I could dance, if only someone would show me HOW! Where and when to dance were concepts not even on my radar. But guess what? My dream became reality; someone showed me how; I learned couples dancing. And then I discovered country line dancing! The where and when to dance quickly appeared, and the rest is history.
Then – the number of people I discovered in the world shot through the ROOF, and I met all of you!!! And you were (and are) just like me! You have the same hunger; you hear the music in your heart and head like I always have. And you’ve joined the dancing too!! Wow…WOW! Thank you for letting me be a part of your dance journey. It’s a BLAST!!!!!!
See you on the dance floor!
