Romance Right in Step

Do you enjoy dancing? I do.

Gwynly knows this, so he surprised me recently by signing us up for ballroom dance lessons through our local Parks and Recreation Department.

Ballroom dance class

We’re having lots of fun learning. Our focus so far is East Coast Swing. We’ve mastered a couple of basic turns and haven’t stepped on any toes in the process.

I asked one of the young men why he and his girlfriend are there. He said the lessons were his Valentine’s Day present to her. It’s what she really wanted, so he made it happen. My romance writer’s heart loved hearing that.

Shared activities are important in any relationship, especially a romantic one. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find mutual interests, but it’s worth it to do some experimentation. The rewards are many.

The young man I was talking with admitted that he’s having more fun than he expected. I can tell by her smiles that his girlfriend is happy. Gwynly and I are certainly having a blast.

❤❤❤

    Yes, this is great fun. I am really enjoying the classes and it is super to be able to dance together. Great to have such a wonderful partner.

  • Aw, you guys are so cute! Mike and I took ballroom lessons our last semester of college (when we were dating). It was great to show off some of the moves during our first dance at our wedding!

  • Your hubby is so sweet! We’re not big on dancing, although in our dating years we did a bit of square dancing. Our favourite ‘together’ activity is camping. Through the years that’s evolved to mean RVing, but we love heading out to explore the backcountry peacefulness.

    I’d never paid much attention to hockey until my hubby introduced me to it. Admittedly we don’t play it, but we spend many occasions cheering on our favourite teams.

    Eric snd I love dancing. We plan to take up lessons as soon as my knee will allow. We wanted to do it last fall but the knee surgery changed all plans. Hopefully this fall my knee will be strong enough. I want to learn how to Tango. Love the picture!

    *Gasp* I LOVE swing dancing! I started taking lessons several years ago when I lived in D.C. You’ll love it, Keli! The music, the friendliness of fellow dancers, the swivel steps, Lindy Hop….I could go on, lol. Hope you and Gwnly keep at it. You two look like you’re having a great time.
