There are so many social groups out there these days for various dance forms. Have you ever joined one? Would you go alone or with a partner?

A good friend of mine teaches ballroom dancing and I joined her social beginners class a few years back - I only went a few times, but enjoyed it. I'd love to go again but the timing clashes with kids' bedtimes etc.
I hope you can do it again sometime :)

I did a few different forms of dance as a child, and as an adult I've tried Salsa and tap dancing. For exercise I now stick to Zumba which fuses dance together with exercise.
I did scottish dancing for 13yrs and was actually really good at it. As an adult I went to zumba classes. They were great fun!
Wow I have never heard of Scottish dancing. Just saw a video on youtube, looks like you might have good balancing skills to do this one :)

As a child my mother put me in a class for dance.....but in the end it cost too much, so she had to take me out.
Sad story, but true.
I had ballet lessons as a child and was very serious about it but grew too tall too young to be allowed to carry on past puberty. As a teenager I became interested in English folk dancing and have done several different varieties of that, including clog dancing and morris dancing, with all the bells, sticks and hankies your heart could desire :)

I have also attended salsa lessons just for a giggle and a way of letting off steam when I was working in a very stressful environment. I was rubbish at it but it was great fun!
Oh that's great Verity ! I love dancing .
by BK
No. I don't like the social aspect or the outfits.
I love dancing ! I joined some dance classes as a kid and then gave up to spend more time on books. How stupid I was :-\ Now I really want to go back to dancing. It take away the stress for a while and makes me feel so alive .
by BK
No I would be too self conscious.
Yes, twice. It didn't last long. If I were to do it again, would definitely go with a partner.

by Vee

I trained as a ballet dancer, but had to give it up at the age of 19 due to health issues. A decade later and in good health again, I'm about to do a six week course of adult ballet classes with The Australian Ballet. And after that I plan on joining in the ballet classes run by Sydney Dance Company. Such a great and fun way to keep fit, and meet new people.
Good for you! that's so great! :)

Wow, that's awesome !

I've never taken any sort of dance classes at any point in my life. I don't think I would at this point either.
I did go to dance classes for a while as a teenager to learn dances such as the Military Two Step, Waltz etc. However I don't have the sense of rhythm, coordination etc necessary for dance or similar activities.
Have always wanted ro be a dancer but never got around to it,so started going to different classes in my forties and have tried belly dacing, salsa and now in my 4th year am learning Hula/tahitian dance

Yes, I love to dance. Right now, my joints prevent me from the ballroom dancing I had been doing.

Instead, I was doing Aqua Zumba in the pool but we just lost our teacher. Hopefully we will get another one.

By the way - I am an 81 year old women.

When I was younger, I took tap - but my favorite is ballet. In later life I got involved in ballroom dancing as well as country dancing and line dancing.

by Rita
Wow, I must say I am really impressed !!
by BK
Yep. Tried ballet, hated it, gave it up after a couple of weeks. I think maybe I was just too uncoordinated. A few years later, though, I found the local Marching Girls and stayed with them for ten years.
Wow, sounds good !
by BK
I excitedly bought tap shoes and have some lessons in my fifties. Unfortunately no one else of my vintage wanted to learn and the lessons finished. I still have my tap shoes forlornly waiting for senior classes so we can get tapping again
I love your spirit , you should definitely go :)
by BK
I was sent to a ballet class when I was little, but I'd stay & watch the tap class afterwards, then go home & tap around the house. 50 years later I reminded my mum about that, & she said yes, she was sorry, she never sent me the tap classes. I did attend tap classes about 20 years ago, but It was years after I'd hurt my back in an arobics lesson, & after each tap class, I'd have to go for a chiropractic session, because my back was hurting so much! Luckily, my back doesn't hurt anymore when I'm not dancing.That;s it, no more dancing now .

I learned Scottish dancing when younger then ballroom dancing but gave that up due to cost issues. Dutch folk dancing was performed by all my family for many years with performances at the Opera House and the Bobby Limb show many years ago, to name a couple, even though my husband is German and he danced for so many years with the girls until they were in their teens but he continued dancing.
