Not in a million years, did I think I would end up at an Arthur Murray Dance Studio. A few years ago, however, as my husband and I were walking to the movie theater, we walked past a dance studio and we both commented aloud “That looks like fun!”
Lo and behold, a few weeks later, on Christmas morning, I opened an envelope with a gift certificate for 2 months of dance lessons. It is the gift that keeps on giving!
We have been dancing once a week for the past three years and, as my husband says, “Now, instead of us both having two left feet, we both have two TRAINED left feet!”
Neither of us are very smooth or lyrical in our dance movements. Our diminutive dance instructor patiently models, coaches and cheers us on each week and lately we have started to surprise ourselves when we remember how to do a certain step or which way to go on a turn.
Every Wednesday night, we show up and it has become such a delightful part of our week. And to think it all started with a shared musing on the way the the movies!
