Wow, if he is willing to embarrass you and himself by hiding in a room when someone comes over to teach dancing, then he has serious issues with learning to dance. He needs professional help.

I came from a country where dancing was and still is where everybody accepted it as normal. You might just mention that in cave drawings thousands of years old, the carvings were obviously of people dancing. I think its safe to say that we first learnt to walk , then to run, then to move in unison with any natural sound which is to dance. Having said that not everybody wants to dance. I mean could you get interested in playing Darts or maybe playing Chess. Probably not. So there you are. But I've been around dancing for years . I would say it is extremely good exercise not only for both sides of the body but also for both sides of the brain. Remember this. Any type of dancing is." Moving to beautiful music. Creating shapes in space.
And joining in that wonderful world of make believe. One last thing. For the couple of hours spent dancing . All your daily troubles are forgotten. Its impossible to think of two things at the same time. If I am concentrating on the music and the steps, then everything else is put on hold.

My wife started me dancing 3 years ago, it was very difficult for her to get me there but I wanted her to join me at golf and she agreed, if I went to five dance lessons.
She then made it a little challenge, could I learn enough in 5 lessons in order to dance at an upcoming ball.
Our first lesson was the Rumba Box and the Waltz, in 5 weeks I was hooked, especially as at the ball ladies asked me to dance with them.
So I suggest that you appeal to your husbands vanity, if he thinks he can dance now, how good could he be after 5 lessons, also never criticise each other at a dance, you are there for fun. Practise at home, and compliment him when he gets it right.
He will find that the first time he leads a lady into a dance pattern he will feel so pleased he will not be able to stop.

Good Luck

Still Learning

Maybe start with some Country dancing. You don't have to love Country music to have fun with Country 2 Step. Country dancing is more relaxed than Ballroom dancing. Also, don't call it Ballroom Dancing, call it Partner dancing!!
