Why people pay for dance lessons

April 2, 2015

Tweet Why do people PAY for dance lessons – not only financially, but also with their time, energy, and attention – devoting much money and many hours for years of their lives learning and practicing “how to dance” (on their own and with others, watching, imitating, and taking private lessons and group classes)?

Dance As If No One was Watching

November 29, 2011

Tweet Social dancing is not the same as social performing. Many social “partner” dance classes seem to emphasize patterns, footwork, and “styling” – as if they are what matters most.
