Sorry so long getting back to you, Salmonmac. A business trip took me away just before you asked... I hate it when real life gets in the way of KH!
Well, oddly enough husband taught ballroom dancing in the 80's. When we first married I kept asking him to teach me to dance, but he always politely demurred, saying it wasn't a good idea for him to teach me. Back then I couldn't understand why... but I've since learned how smart a man he really
Fast forward to 2 years ago: A local studio offered introductory ballroom dance through community education, and we took the course and stuck with it after at the studio itself. I'm almost through my Bronze level!
I learned why it wasn't a good idea in the past 2 years. Having your husband, who used to compete in ballroom, critique your every move is such a phenomenally
bad idea, but an instructor doing it is a different thing entirely. Especially when I realized just how physically unbalanced I can be.
Husband is a brave and patient man!
