“When Bonita Caunce asked her husband if he would take ballroom dancing lessons with her I, Brian Caunce, didn’t share my wife’s vision. When I pictured ballroom dancing, I thought of effeminate men, not strong ones. This scenario made me nervous and it took a great deal of convincing to get me to take that first lesson.
Well, on June 18, 2005, Bonita was able to get me to take that first lesson. That first lesson was not too pretty let me tell you. Anyhow, we came back again and I still did not have a great feeling about this but I was still willing to give it a try for Bonita. I figured if I didn’t I wouldn’t here the end of it, so I figured that the dancing was the lesser evil of the two.
Three months later Bonita and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary (this was why we started the dance lessons) and we celebrated going out dancing.
We danced a waltz together for the first time other than the dance studio and it was GREAT. Being able to hold her in my arms, listen to the music and flow around the dance floor as one. This is the first time in 30 years that Bonita and I have actually done something together. Now, I crave the dance floor more than my wife does and I have fallen in love with it.
Four years later and we are still dancing – that should say it all.
I would highly recommend that you give it a try. The Tri-City Arthur Murray Dance studio is first class in my books and anyone wanting to learn should start here. The Staff are friendly and courteous – in fact I feel we are one big happy family.
I could continue on about how great it is but I think you should check it out yourself.”
