ChrisNukemYJ; Tosha loves Fred Astaire lol.



He wasn't much to look at, but he could really "dance"
and had some beautiful partners......

Here's a nice information link on "Square Dancing"....this is fun......

Program: POV

Episode: Not So Square

Think you know about the people who square dance?
'Not So Square' is a love story about a community of
dancers that realize square dance is a fading art form.
Hoping for its survival, they reach out to a younger generation.

She's a great dancer and her partner is doing fine with his lessons
(if he's a student, although he looks more accomplished than student level)....
he can lead just fine and can do some nice "variations".......
they are hard to learn, sometimes, as you have to have them in mind as you dance...
and, always be prepared to "dodge" other dancers.....
I always loved the "Tango" and the music.....hope you're in there dancing, too!
....

They would "win" over these dancers......enjoy the music......
Tango amateur

If she hasn't taught you yet, try this and surprise her...
I put these here to show others how hard this dance is to
learn and why your wife looks so great doing it..
everyone, grab your partner and try it....it's fun..
