White Man Can't Dance

Property Manager with HomePointe Property Management, CRMC 00691121

My son is getting married in 10 days.  My wife and I started taking private Walz and East Coast Swing dance lessons several weeks ago so we could look respectable on the dance floor. 

We have danced some over the years but I have never taken it too seriously.  I would like to be a great dancer, but that takes real effort and desire and more time than I seem to have. 

Tonight at our lesson I realized, that after 5 private lessons and a few practice sessions at home, I will only be passable at best. The real problem is that my wife loves dancing and I can feel the disappointment.  She claims no, but I know better after 30 years of marriage.  I know too much.

So, I am committed to more practice sessions in the next 10 days leading up to my son's wedding.  I am hopeful that with more practice under my belt, a committment to have fun, and a few drinks, I will blend into the dance floor and carry my wife off her feet, without stepping on them.

Oh, and I hope my son's wedding goes off without a hitch and that he and his bride are happy.

Congrats to you! I know a lot of men who would never even take dancing lessons! I'm sure you will have a great day - best to all of you.

Robert - That is such a cute blog title!  You remind me that we had a company holiday party one year, and a number of our guys couldn't seem to dance to well to certain music.  We had a Jamaican guy with wonderfully long dread locks, that taught us all the moves. . .It was GREAT!  You're right, wWhite guys can't jump - and they can't dance:-)

Congratulations on your son's upcoming marriage. . .I know you are looking forward to it!

The thing to think on is the music.... flow with... relax, feel it... before long you'll be floating!  Dancing is just as natural as eating, walking, and renting property, which you are already good at!  I'm believing you'll dazzle them all, and surprise yourself!  Be encouraged!

Nick,  I will do that, but taking a picture of myself while dancing may add stress.
