Dear OpenDoor - I appreciate your honesty! Yes it does seem a bit like trying to mix oil and water, and I understand the wisdom behind your words of not having too high of expectations, or get my hopes up too high. I also see a lot of wisdom in your suggestion of letting him do some learning all on his own, first. In fact, I think it could be quite brilliant! That way he could get comfortable, learn some skills, and be more confident, before we tried to dance together. He would know more and have more practice that I do (I have ever learned to do partner dancing - I just love to move to music!). Not sure sure about the DJ thing - but another innovative idea! I think we are most likely to dance if going out to a night club with other couples, rather than becoming deeply involved in the dance community - but who knows where we'll end up? Thank you for your valuable 2 cents worth!
