LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOU DANCE
I have been known to dance in my kitchen – a lot! I have perfected the pirouette in socks behind my peninsula and have been caught on my daughter’s SnapChat reading recipes while moving and grooving to the music in the background. Dancing makes me feel alive. It makes me feel happy - however, in full disclosure – I cannot dance! In my head - I am fantastic, but when I see playback videos, it is more of a comedy show than an episode of World of Dance – so, it was absolutely time for me to improve my skills with some formal dance lessons.
With masks adorned and small groups of less than ten (10), DeSarge Danceworld offers individual and group lessons for all dance genres - Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Salsa, Hustle, Ballroom, Latin, and so much more. We chose to learn the Hustle because it is the easiest of all the dances to learn and with its four-beat count, the step patterns are easy to master, and go to any style of music, from any era.
Within 30 minutes, I am confident Dancing with the Stars already has me on its radar for the upcoming season! We were stepping and twirling and looked like we were real actual dancers. It was filled with laughter and good spirit and the owner, Sarge had our entire group wanting to learn more. We went from zero to hero in under an hour and left with the confidence to show-off our new skills along with the desire to return to DeSarge to keep learning more! Dancing is a bit of a contagious activity and I have discovered that life is most certainly better when you dance.
“There are shortcuts to happiness – and dancing is one of them” –Vicki Baum
Learning to dance the “DeSarge” way is fun and easy. They teach each step pattern with timing, lead, and follow. They break down each figure and teach how to master each pattern. A great activity for all ages, beginner to advance, to learn all styles including Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Salsa, Hustle, Ballroom, Latin, and so much more. All safety measures in place with individual and small group activities available.
