When did you learn to dance?  What kind of dancing did you learn to do? 

When did you learn to dance?  Did your parents put on music and encourage you to dance to it?  Did they dance?  Did you learn to dance in school?  Was it fun or was it hard to dance?  Did you take dance lessons like tap dancing, ballet, clogging or ballroom dance?  Did you attend dances such as your Junior Prom?  Did you dance all night or were you a wallflower?  Did you ever perform a dance?  What kind of dancing do you like to do?

Dancing can be a fun part of life.  When you are young you might just bounce or sway or swirl around in response to music.  As you get older you may be taught different ways to dance.  You may attend dances where you either wait for someone to ask you to dance or you take the chance to ask someone to dance and risk being rejected.  Perhaps you danced at your wedding.  Maybe you continue to dance whenever you feel like it or maybe you go out to dance.  Dancing may be an important part of your story.

Over the years I've learned a lot of different dances. I still don't feel really coordinated. I've often stepped on toes. When I first learn a dance I often go the opposite direction of everyone else. But dancing is fun. Even though I'm not really graceful, I still enjoy dancing. Write down your experiences about dancing. Write down how good you felt you were. Did people stand back to watch you dance? Did you win a dance contest? Write down about special dances and whether you had a date. Write down whether you stepped on the toes of that girl or boy you finally got up the courage to dance with. Write down what dance steps you learned and what kind of music you danced too. Just think how much fun it would be to know how your grandparents or great grandparents danced. Maybe your grandchildren and great grandchildren will enjoy reading about your dancing. swing dancer with poodle skirt and saddle shoes canvas bags

I remember my first dance lesson like it was yesterday. I was a bit shy then, and dancing helped build my confidence along the way. But, the best part of learning to dance is that I can express myself thru dancing while having fun! It might be true that learning to dance properly can be hard for some people, but every person has a perfect dance that they can be comfortable with.
