Hi, Katie, I am on my way to New Year dancing party organized by my dancing studio. And I am 64! I was dancing all my life without knowing what i am doing, but just short two years ago I was exposed for the first time into instruction in ballroom dancing. What a humbling experience it was! Being anywhere below 60 is a great age to start! I did at 62, and now i was dancing in a nuber of local and interstate competition including one state. I travel a lot and move around the country. I am startting agin in another place for a third time in two years. it is indeed a lifestyle not a hobby. I lost weight and improved my posture, but my sister who seen me dancing just a year ago and decided to do it too in her late 50s lost already 40lbs became fit and happy and now is winning her competitions left and right.
And talking about boys... I have a 16 years old daughter who wached me for a year before decided to dance too. Now she is starting agin as we moved again and can not wait. My 27 years old son still watches us from sidelines, but who knows? maybe one day...
Do it. Do not ask too many questions. Try. that is the only test... Mike
