Re: Dancing for the not so serious dancer? Posted by Ladydance 9/10/2009 6:51:00 AM
I think attitudes toward dancing may be changing here in North America. More young people are getting interested because of the extremely popular dance shows on TV. We have seen a huge increase in young couples taking our group classes, it used to be all middle-aged to old folks. Our group classes are very inexpensive. As well, the studio has a party every Friday night, open to anyone, where folks can come and dance and socialize. We try to stress that these parties are for fun, not practice (there are lots of other times for that). So even us international dancers, relax and yes, even have a beer! There might not be room for a slow fox but everything else is doable. And since anything goes on Fridays we quite often mix styles!
