I am late in posting this but I wanted to give a shout out to 2 new dancers, Gary & Kelly, whom we met at USA Dance 6059’s monthly social this past Saturday. About 6 of us joined together to teach them some steps that night–I hope their heads weren’t spinning too much by the time they left.
This kind of welcome is my first and fondest memory of coming to a USA Dance event. I was by myself and didn’t know anything, but everyone greeted me, helped me, taught me steps, and asked me to dance even though I was new and clueless. The dancing itself is great, of course, but I also think dancers are some of the nicest people around. We are always happy to welcome newcomers.
The turnout Saturday night was excellent and a good time was had by all. Daniel even defied his doctor’s orders and danced a half-dozen or so dances. He is not supposed to be dancing till after his knee pain is diagnosed and treated, but really, where’s the fun in that?
