Why were you inspired to do this?
I met someone who enjoys the fun and focus of dancing in a couple as much as I do, and we were throwing the Life Listers' Ball Feb. 5, 2011 at the Seaport Hotel in Boston to bring together My Life List members, supporters and friends. We wanted to bring a good spirit to the dancefloor and encourage others to get up and dance, so we dusted off our dancing shoes and took a lesson.
What were 3 things you did to make this happen?
We had to make time to go into Arthur Murray studio.
Learn to follow. Having never had a decent dance partner before, I had to work on letting someone else direct the motion.
Relax and enjoy the dancing!
How did you feel once you had accomplished this?
It felt wonderful to lead this ball with a dance, to feel confident on the dance floor even when the professional dancers were out there at the same time. I have always felt joy in dancing, this just felt relaxed and fun.
