The first and second times Caleb and I met outside of our first two Bible study run-ins were to attend or to teach a swing dancing event. And now, nearly 4 years later... We're teaching swing dancing in our area!!
I've found a dance studio that's giving us an amazing deal, and we're charging people $2 at the door to help cover renting the facility. We had our first lesson two Fridays ago where we taught the basic step, underarm and overarm turns, and the cuddle.
It was a lot of fun to be around dancing again and teaching again. A few of the students complimented me and said things like "I can tell you were a teacher." That made me feel very proud and competent. It was also very rewarding to see everyone dancing better by the end of the evening than they had been at the beginning. It was super, super fun.
By the way, if you know of anyone who's interested in extremely cheap swing dancing lessons south of Atlanta, we're planning on meeting probably every other Friday in Tyrone, GA starting at 7:30. The next class will be July 19th. Please email me for further information or look for the Facebook event.
