Twinkletoes

Back in college a girlfriend and I signed up to take Intro to Ballroom Dancing. She dumped me between course registration and the start of the semester, so I (logically?) dropped the class.

I haven't taken a dance lesson since square dancing in high school PE. I have since perfected the White Boy Shuffle and the Wallflower Bop. Anything requiring actual movement of more than one joint or extremity ends up with me looking like Punch & Judy got their strings tangled.

MrsZ and I are starting a basic Waltz class tonight.

Eep.

Good luck Bro!

Mrs. Weer'd gets ONE free dance at me per social event. She can spend it however she wishes but when its gone, I'm off the floor and back to having fun.

Hope you aren't like me, seems everybody else enjoys doing it!

Weerd, I cordially detest dancing. This will be an "interesting" experience.

Good luck and I'll be praying for you and MrsZ.

She Who Lets Me Make Her Coffee Every Morning and I took dance lessons before we got married -- we almost didn't get married.

Due to my lack of rhythm & ability to follow a beat that 8 week period was rough.

The Boss made me do it a few years back. I think it comes with the Ring.

Men don't like to dance because they do not learn to dance. I took lessons for years, it can be done. It is a skill like any other, but, as they say, it takes two to Tango, so good for you!
