Starting ballroom dancing lessons has been a long time dream. Dance Passion Studio has made me feel so wonderful, even when I feel like I have two left feet. In a short time I’ve learn so many basic dances along with nuances I’ve seen on Dancing With the Stars. The studio have group lesson five nights a week at 7:00 p.m. This has helped me learn form, new steps and keeps me from forgetting my lessons. And as they say, dance is the best exercise. In a short time I have used so many muscles that I’m hoping will transform me to a twenty years younger self. I’ve been asking myself “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”.
