Explanation

Life is an adventure. So is dancing. Don't believe me? Try this: step out onto a crowded dance floor. Wait, stop. I already forgot something - where's the girl? Start there! Go ask a girl to dance - knees week, palms sweating, heart pounding in your ears? Same feeling you get standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon staring out into space, hoping against everything that the earth you're standing on doesn't suddenly give way.

Dancing alone - definitely an adventure! Walk into your local supermarket, bank or even at the coffee station at work; strap on a set of headphones and bust a move to your favorite tunes. No?!? Why not? Not a big enough rush for you?

Dancing is definitely an adventure that enriches life and strengthens the fabric of your soul. I've heard many of my mentors say that, "Everyone has rhythm. Everyone who has a heart beat has a rhythm. Dancing is your way of letting that rhythm come out of you and greet the world."

I've allowed dancing to take a hold of me and I now find myself half way around the world teaching ballroom dance to individuals I may never have gotten a chance to know otherwise. I love adventures and I love dancing. The fact that I'm now setting out on adventures because of dancing is truly unbelievable to me. I've been blessed.

I was asked by some students I had the opportunity to teach back in CT to share with them the adventure I am now on and I am happy to do so. I'll try to be as real as possible and share the ins and outs of living abroad in Jordan. I'll also make every attempt I can to discuss dancing, music, food, and the other things that enrich the lives we lead.

I hope you enjoy the blog and give dancing a try if you haven't yet; I believe it will truly change your life!

I don't think your knees particular knees needed to ever be weak because it is highly unlikely anyone would ever have said "No" to dancing with The Staz! :)Really excited about living your Jordan experience through your blog!!! :) Lots of hugs, Charmaine

    1. Thanks for the encouragement! Trust me though, there are still times when I'm nervous to ask a girl to dance, not sure if it's just me or of that feeling ever truly gets lost. Maybe some day but let's just say I still get a little weak knee'd every time a certain snowy coach comes around the dance floor.

    1. I'll do what I can. Those are definitely strong words of encouragement, I'll take them to heart and look back at them if I ever start feeling a little down and out.
