Men Don't Dance


When you first start taking ballroom lessons a number of your male friends may reacted negatively. They may think it is funny or not manly enough. You may be 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! Married or single, the women in your life want to dance with YOU!!! How can you not want to dance You get to dress nice, meet and hold beautiful women in your arms (and they are all beautiful) and it's great exercise

“Social dancers think that sometimes it is stupid to hope,
but we all know that sometimes hope is all we have.”


Did I mention beautiful women? 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. So we have to adjust, somewhat here on Oahu, in 202

“The dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music,

and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable

Dancing is poetry with arms and legs.” – Charles Baudelaire
