While in the throes of my awkward early teen years (13 years old to be exact) I discovered my love for dance. Music from The Supremes, Simon & Garfunkle, and The Righteous Brothers was playing on the radio and provided accompaniment to endless hours of imitating the dancing I had watched on TV shows like "Lawrence Welk". Anything that brings joy in those tumultuous years is a relief for most parents, and mine dedicated what little extra funds they could save to piano lessons for me and my sisters. Although I never had the opportunity to take dance lessons as a young girl, the piano lessons paid off in terms of musicality, timing, and a sense of joy in artistic interpretation.
By the time I was 16, high school presented an opportunity for the closest thing to dance that was offered: Drill Team. With no formal training, I practiced jazz moves and steps that I had picked up from TV and showed up for tryouts. By some divine intervention, I'm sure, I not only made the team, but was elected Lieutenant the first year and Captain the second year. The determination I developed during those years was the driving force that would see me through many other challenges in life.
Those beautiful memories are decades in the past now and my own family has grown since then. In fact when my family grew up and I was faced with the empty nest, new possibilities were presented to me. ABC announced a new reality show called "Dancing With The Stars". From the first episode of Season 1, I have been consumed with the unfolding drama created in the development and transition of ordinary people into ballroom dancers.
Without exception, at one point or another, there is testimony from each contestant relating the difficulty of this process. But they are given a professional dance partner and an opportunity to dance as many hours a day as they can either endure or carve out of their schedule in preparation of their routines. Sounds like pure heaven to me! And with that thought in mind, I went in search of a dance studio, and in the process, found what has become my passion and my business. I was lucky enough to find a wonderful professional dance partner right here in the Dallas area (just like those on "Dancing With The Stars") and although it isn't possible for me to dance for 8-10 hours a day physically or financially, over the past several years he has been patiently and gradually molding me into an accomplished ballroom dancer. This is a dream come true for me and one I am thankful for every day.
Feeling so connected to this ballroom community – which is truly such a lovely group of people - has meant so much and offering them beautiful costumes and dancewear has brought a lot of joy. I’ve met some great people and heard some incredible stories from the people buying my dancewear and shoes. I love helping people with fit and fashions in dance apparel and costumes, and just generally being around dancers, competitions, beautiful music, and beautiful dancing.
Our Love Affair with Ballroom Dancing
One of the most elegant forms of dancing is ballroom dancing, encompassing many styles, including waltz, tango, and fox trot. With ballroom dancing making a marvelous comeback, we are reminded of the magical musical dance movies when Fred Astaire would sweep Ginger Rogers in his arms and whirl her around the dance floor. Ballroom dancing seems to convey an elegant and timeless quality. Even in the 21st century, despite the technical revolution and the current economic woes, women still love to be romanced, while men enjoy the chivalry involved in romancing. In the 18th and 19th Centuries, it was enjoyed mainly by the well-to-do, but today, ballroom is enjoyed all over the world by people of all ages and economic backgrounds. Ballroom transports its participants to that magical place where you can still find elegant and graceful dancers like Fred and Ginger. Our love affair lives on and will likely continue to do so as long as there are people to enjoy its many benefits.
