I began Ballroomdancing when...
"I saw Bobby and Sissy dance on the Lawrence Welk show and my interest in ballroom dancing started. When I was 17 years old I would just sit in my car and watch the people dancing at the Arthur Murray studio in Louisville Kentucky. Finally I got up the nerve to go in and ask about lessons and they told me I was too young. When I was 19 and in college I answered an ad to train as a teacher for Fred Astaire Dance Studios. The minute I started training class I loved it."
