• Is ballroom dancing a sport?

    We certainly hope so, since the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame is such a good friend to us dancers.

    Our instructor Paula East is “professional dance consultant” to the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame. Each month on the first Friday of the month (Macon’s designated “enjoy the downtown nightlife” day) she hosts a dance at the GSHF with a complimentary lesson followed by open dancing.

    On May 1, the GSHF celebrates 10 years in its permanent home at 301 Cherry Street. The usual ballroom shenanigans are moving outside into the courtyard; Mark Brooker and the Soul Proprietors are playing live music, several of Paula’s students (including yours truly) are doing exhibition performances, and best of all, it’s all FREE. The festivities begin at 7:30 with a line dancing lesson from Dianne Kent, then a Latin dance lesson from Paula, then the exhibitions. Daniel and I are dancing a cha-cha to the 80s one-hit wonder “Word Up.”  Cheesetastic, but it’s a really good cha-cha!
