Oh how we danced…

“Oh, how we danced on the night we were wed….
we danced and we danced ’cause the room had no bed…”

Ms Canada and I have returned from our first dancing lesson at the Ritz Ballroom suitably cowed.

We tried though. We tried hard. Our little group, 4 middle-aged men, their partners and about 5 extra women “of a certain age” shuffled in approximate step . Eventually we were actually allowed to shuffle with a partner instead of doing the waltz as a kind of individual line dance. It wasn’t pretty. It didn’t get prettier either.

Let’s just say that wearing  sneakers was a good idea.

I really don’t think they should hold beginners lessons right beside the folks practicing their choreography for dance competitions. Especially couples doing the whole Latin thing.

That’s just cruel.
