There is nothing more romantic than waltzing on the dance floor for your first dance while your friends and family look on admiring the way you and your partner fit in each other's arms and glide around the dance floor. The first dance together as husband and wife is one of the most watched events and if done right, one of the highlights of the wedding. The memory of the first dance will be with you always and you should arrange a video record of the event.
Don't forget, more than just the bride and groom can benefit from wedding dance lessons, you should consider the Father/Daughter dance and the Mother/Son Dance as well.
Often the song you have chosen for "your" dance does not fit with the dance you have in mind. I can change the timing or the length "fit."
I began ballroom dancing in 1988, after dancing Salsa for a time. Like many people; I was looking for something new to fill up a space in my live. I had been working in the technology industry for many years. The projects I contributed to and managed were interesting but, the field is quite boring. I am never bored when I dance, or when I teach, or work as an official at Dance Competitions. These days I mainly Scrutineer at these events but, I sometimes Emcee or perform other activities as required.
I have competed in International Standard, International Latin and American Smooth. I have trained with top coaches and Instructors in both the United States and England. I have relocated to Austin and look forward continuing to dance and help people in the wonderful world of dance.Read more

Ballroom dance is about as far from computer design engineering as anything can be. I worked in the technology industries for many years. The field requires a great deal of specialized knowledge but, is not all that interesting. I took up the ballroom dance hobby in order to meet people; I had been doing martial arts (Aikido), which was/is awesome. But, I was looking to find something to meet people, not necessarily to hit them. I was recently divorced and really wanted to meet people of the opposite sex. After taking advantage of a free lesson at Arthur Murray’s, I was "hooked." Shortly thereafter, I was put into the teacher training program. I did hang up my dance shoes for a while…but, I’m back baby!!!.
