Welcome South Side Swing Club at our Saturday Dance

South Side Swing Club 1

Members of the South Side Swing Club joined us at our Saturday Dance.  They enjoyed participating in the Swing Dance Class offered this night.  They learned some new steps that included “The Sweet Heart Strut” and how to get into and style up the “shake hand position” for more variety in Swing!   Their positive energy and enthusiasm were a welcome addition to this fun evening of dancing.

Advice for a Successful Marriage!

“Wes and Joanna are such a delight to know.  Their humor, wonderful relationship, long standing successful marriage and passion for dancing are very inspirational.  When we asked Wes what the secret to a happy marriage is, he said he offers the following advice. .

“Hi Laura, I have offered this free advice to numerous men on occasion. I point out that taking your wife or girl friend to a dance is a smart move.  I tell them that since I decided to escort Joanna to dances, my home life has been heavenly.  No longer is a forgotten bath towel on the floor a source of any complaint from my spouse”.

“If I spring for ballroom dance lessons, I am even free to make unsolicited comments about my wife’s driving (which she ignores).  Joanna is more likely to laugh at my jokes if we are returning home from a rumba lesson.  How’s that for a recommendation”?

-Wes

 

I can actually dance…. It’s true, just ask my wife!

Tim took some of our dances classes.  We encouraged him to attend some of the local dances so he could practice what he had learned.  At one of those dances he met Michelle.  As all good love stories go, it was love at first dance.  They were married a short time later!  They continue to take our classes and are still happily dancing and madly in love.

“Learning to dance is hard work and, like so many other men, I find it downright embarrassing. I actually dread most dance classes I go to. But I gain so much confidence learning from Laura. Every class I take with her, I become more convinced that I can learn to dance! She is so well organized, so clear, so encouraging and so much fun. She presents the information at a pace I can keep up with and helps us practice new steps right there in class, before they evaporate from my brain. With Laura’s instruction, in spite of my embarrassment, I can actually dance. It’s true; just ask my wife”.
