Thoughts from my First Ballroom Dance Lesson

First, background. Ballroom dance is on my bucket list. So when 4 lessons for $12 near my house, I signed right up. Tonight was my first lesson: beginner waltz and rumba. Here are my thoughts.

  1. There needs to be some sort of screening process. Old guys who lick their lips and look sketchily into their young partner's eyes should not be allowed in.
  2. Just because you watch a lot of Dancing with the Stars does not mean you know how to dance. Stop asking about how "rigid" your "frame" should be when you just accidentally kicked your partner in the shin.
  3. I find it REALLY hard NOT to lead. I am such a better dancer than pretty much all the guys there. Why am I going to let them lead me down shitty dancing street?

I remember my first day in my ballroom dancing class. Everyone in the studio looked rather stiff and competitive, but when we started with the dance routine, I slowly realized some people are just more gifted in dancing than others. I guess what kept me going was my sheer passion for dancing and a little bit of my talent.
