i wanna dance with somebody…

4 Jul

Last Saturday my incredibly brave fiancee and I ventured into the land of Arthur Murray Dance studios. Our guides- a very short, but graceful, man with amazing rhythm and the strong desire to not look too awkward while swaying in front of everyone we know.

We entered the studio and the immediately the worst possible thing that could happen did. First, the only dancing area that we could see had glass walls- oh good, everyone will be able to watch us. Second, no really, they wanted everyone to come watch a couple. John and I, with his parents, approached the glass walled room with probably 10-15 other people to watch the couple who was currently taking lessons dance their first dance. My stomach immediately turned and my fiance went from miserable to inconsolable whispering, “there is no way I’m doing this.” After their dance ended everyone left the room clapping and happy- everyone but us, we just stood there nervously, awaiting our dancing doom.

Thankfully, there was another room in the back and the dance lessons actually turned out really well! I would definitely recommend it, and while John and I wont be on Dancing with the Stars anytime soon, I think we will be able to hold our own on the big day.
