My wife and I started private dance lessons two and half months ago to prepare for our daughters wedding in February. We have learned the Rumba fairly well and a bit of the waltz-enough to get us through the wedding. My wife learns much quicker than I do especially when she dances with the instructor. Her dance with the instructor compared to her dance with me is night and day. When she is dancing with me she is not getting an opportunity to better herself-she is just doing me a favor of dancing with me. The way I learned the Rumba was watching an online video. I am just not a good dancer. Because she really likes and enjoys dancing and wants to go on to many more different dances, I think she should dance regularly with an experienced man, preferably an instructor, who will help her improve and learn new dances. I will come along at my own pace. If you are an instructor or a couple who have taken lessons, I would appreciate your opinion about my idea. Thanks 1retiredbeginner.
