(Zachary Germain and April Geyer at the Manhattan Amateur Classic Dancesport Competition , Dancing the Swing – Placing 1st in Pre-Champ)
I have found a new way to my “Happy Place”:
I give credit to my Mom who encouraged me over and over again to give ballroom dancing a try.
I give credit to my husband, Eoin, who has supported me no matter what I tried. It is wonderful learning something new together.
Zachary is a talented ballroom dancer who has been competing for 10 years. Next Stop for him is the national competition to become a professional dancer. He makes dancing a reality for everyone he teaches. I highly recommend him for private or group lessons – or both!
Here is Zachary Germain and April Geyer again performing a Rumba in the recent competition:
Now doesn’t that look like fun!!
Karen’s Ballroom Dancing and Fitness offers group and private lessons. You can check out their schedule here.
While I have danced all my life, there is something special about dancing with a partner. In this world where we all want to connect, there is nothing quite like dancing to connect! It’s way better than texting or Facebook!
Give it a try! Just dance to a happy place!

Rockafellas – Latin Dancing Wed. Nights, Salem
