Dancing Darling

I'm so proud of Jeff! We had a local church entertainment night this past weekend, and Jeff had agreed to sign us up for a waltz demonstration. We weren't sure if it would work out since we'd have to use the ballroom across the hall from the main room with the piano, but the MC scheduled us for just before intermission so people could walk over to see the dance and then take a break for pizza and snacks.

We had no time to practice, let alone choreograph something, so we just decided to wing it with a social dance. Meaning, whatever steps Jeff decided to lead on the spur of the moment, I would follow. We attempted a run-through at home once with our selected song, but waltz really needs a large space and we couldn't even get through a single verse without running into walls or furniture.

But the performance went well! It's the first time we've ever danced for any sort of audience, so it was a little nerve-wracking but fun. Forgive the loud "clumping" of our dance shoes; laminate floors make a lot of noise!


  1. Very cool! How often are you dancing these days?

  2. Thanks Rachel. We had fun doing it!

    I'm glad you liked it Char. I've been waiting for years to see that exhibition dance you said you did a while back (cha cha, I think?)! We take group lessons every Monday, and Jeff has brought up private coaching lately, so I need to capitalize on that ;-).

  3. If anyone has filmed any of the performances I've done they never told me about it. I do have a couple practice videos we used to see where we needed work; I might be able to upload those... And I helped film a lesson review video for the local dance club, which you can watch if you want:
