Ballroom dance

My husband and I took ballroom dance classes. We both loved it and want to continue training. I recommend ballroom dance for any couple. For me, this training was a very humbling experience. You see, in ballroom dance, the man leads. As a dance teacher this was very difficult for me. Not only did I have to let him lead, but I had to do it without speaking. I had to trust that he was leading me in the right direction. There were times when I had to stop and say, "are you sure you know what you are doing?" This experience also taught him to make sure he knows what he is doing before trying to lead me. I recommend ballroom dance for any and every couple.
