Starting to Dance in the 50s (years old that is)

58 years - what took me so long? I've always loved to watch dancers, whether on the stage or dancing on the dance floor or outdoors. Dancing is visually beautiful - great dancers and dance performances are sculpture in motion. My own experience dancing though were very limited until 2 years ago.

Until I stepped into the DanceSport studios on the 4th Floor at 22 W. 34th Street in February 2013, I was too self-conscious to garner the courage take the group classes I needed to get rid of the two left feet I had on the dance floor. Fortunately, my two good friends, Pete and Kit started taking classes at DS the month before, raved about the place, and encouraged me to finally take the plunge and join them in learning how to dance. Now 2 years into the journey, I think I finally have some basic skills in dancing Swing, Salsa, Hustle, Foxtrot, Waltz, Zouk, etc., and after waiting 2 years I'm finally learning Tango. So, as long as you can walk, it's never too late to learn how to dance!

I didn't know how much fun taking dance classes and hanging out with the people at DanceSport would be. DS has become an important of my life... both for learning and social life. I look forward to going there in the evenings. It's a great place with great people. With its teachers, students, studios, bar and parties, it's a school, dance club and social club all in one place.
