Not currently, but my boyfriend and I really would like to take Swing Dancing lessons, i'm sure it would be tough but if we could get tha hang of it that would totally rock!

Thanks! I know we won't be able to start the lessons anytime soon, unless a miracle happens (we're short on money right now) But we both would love to learn so maybe sometime in the near future we will be able to. I found a place that teaches all sorts of dances near where we live & the first lesson is free, which is really cool.

Formally, I've only learned two dances. Line and Square dancing. I learned those many years ago in elementary school. We had to do it in gym class, lol. I've been taught by friends some other dances. But I agree, Hip Hop dancing is a hard one to learn. Good luck!

Starting on Friday I am going to be learning how to salsa dance, I am so excited. I have been on a weight loss mission and getting braces and now learning how to salsa dance. I am very excited about all of these things I am sure that I am going to feel a lot better about myself when I look better and enjoy my life more. Oh yeah, I am attempting to quit smoking before the braces go on too!!!

I hear that swimming is really good for you. I absolutly hate exercise but I really like dance and I guess I like how I feel when I work out, its the actual work I dont like. I do several videos and the girl I babysit for has an eliptical machine and I have a treadmill so I am able to save money on a gym membership or equipment. I wish you sucess as well. Just keep your eyes on the prize is what I tell myself!!

I am a dancer. I teach and perform, and it is much more difficult then people think. Most dancers train their whole life, and are still not happy with themselves. Its tough, but its fun, and great excercise

You should try.. i'm not sure if you have any dance studios that gives trial classes like what they do here.. if they do, you should go and try out the classes and see what you like before signing up for them =)

I've taken dance since I was 5. Ballet, Jazz, Tap, African, Hip-Hop/Breakdance, Modern, Salsa, Merengue, Belly Dance, Tango, and classical Indian (once). I think I want to take-up classical Indian dance more seriously.

En Pointe - Look at those arches. Wow..I'm in awe. I was never good at pointe work sadly. Killed my left little toe everytime I had to dance in those shoes.
I did ballet for about 10 years but quit about 2 years ago..Hip Hop sounds fun..Jia you~

Yes, I learnt 'old time' dancing (it's basically like ballroom) when I was younger, I even won medals for it. :)

Dancing is wonderful exercise, although I am not very good at it. I have never had any formal dancing training, although when I was at school all those long years ago, we did learn ballroom dancing. Or should I say, we had lessons in ballroom dancing. Good on you BLesseDmiN for taking dancing lessons and I hope that by now you have mastered the art.

I love dance! As a child I studied ballet, jazz, tap, modern, ethnic, and as an adult I studied belly dance, flamenco, and african dance!

I'm now on my 4th year of dancing classes. On the first 2 years I learned "sevillanas" and on the 3rd I started learning flamenco.
