If you still haven't made your New Year's resolution yet, it's not too late.
I've got a suggestion.
Resolve to meet new people and learn how to ballroom dance in the process. I'm not talking about that freestyle, shake-your-booty-anyway-you-want to type of dancing. I mean dancing like "Dancing with the Stars" type of dancing!
There's a new game in town (so-to-speak) that wants to help you do this, it's called the local chapter of USA Dance, and they invite anyone to join.
So you say you can't dance? Doesn't matter. No previous experience required.This group accepts novices to veterans. They are all there to help each other out with their dancing faux pas. All you have to do is join.
It's cheap too! It's $25 per year to join this USA Dance chapter. What's best is they extend a special welcome to beginners who just want to know how they can get started. The swing, cha-cha, foxtrot, waltz -- you name it and they will help you learn it.
If you don't have a dance partner, don't let that stop you.This club exists to promote the benefits of ballroom dancing. Singles are welcome! (Who knows, this could be the place to be to find your better half.) Everyone in the group is there to dance with everyone else. They'll tell you that themselves. One of the ways to become a better dancer is to learn how to dance with other people.
So if I've whet your appetite, call the volunteers who started this dance club, Bob and Carla Davis, 419-684-9074, or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you already enjoy ballroom dancing, then come to their dance on Valentine's Day at Sawmill Creek in the Hiawatha Room. It's $10 per person for non-members and $5 for Dance USA members. (You can't beat that.)
For those of you who have never danced before, they want you to come too.
The first hour (7- 8 p.m.) the chapter members are going to offer a free ballroom dance lesson. So come on, dare to be different -- dance!
