Ballroom Dancing is enjoying a comeback

The popularity of ballroom dancing is climbing with ever-increasing speed. Dance studios are reporting record numbers of new enrollments. "Dancing with the Stars" is commanding a huge audience whose numbers rise weekly and Primetime recently devoted an hour-long episode to ballroom dancing. Some say the renewed popularity was sparked by the movie "Shall We Dance", in which Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez aptly demonstrated the allure of ballroom dancing.

When was the last time you went dancing?
A week? A month? Longer? NEVER?? Perhaps you've forgotten (or maybe you've never known) how ballroom dancing makes you feel....confident, graceful, sensual, even seductive. Gliding around the floor, feeling lighter than air, savoring that satisfaction that comes from knowing others are watching....many with envy. If you've never experienced the euphoria that dancing can bring, you've cheated yourself on a decadent pleasure. The world loves a dancer!
