I'm still in the beginner category but I have a marvelous time every time I attend a dance- it's not just the dancing, but the music and the camaraderie of great and eclectic people.
I was very warmly and enthusiastically greeted by the established members at the pre-dance dinner get together, and that hospitality extended to the initial lesson for newcomers and lasted throughout the duration of the night. I can't recall another group event where I was made to feel so welcome with different people going out of their way to make sure I was included. One thing I noted throughout the evening was the facial expressions of the dancers; everyone was smiling and laughing and exuding a genuine joie d' vivre. I am so grateful I finally committed to attending a dance, and am planning on making this a regular event for me.
