When I first started taking ballroom lessons a number of my male friends reacted negatively. They thought is was funny or not manly enough. I was told "Men don't dance". Are you kidding me? Men don't dance? How did we get to a point where it was considered unmanly to dance? Men, you are MISSING IT!!
"To dance is to set your heart free."
Men don't dance? The facts say something different: In Western aristocratic education, dancing was a requirement for a future courtier. A chivalrous knight was expected to achieve individual glory in war , as well as uphold virtues ranging from loyalty and humility to self-sacrifice and faith in Christian beliefs. He was expected to be courteous, loyal to his lady love, gifted in the arts of dance, conversation, music.
