Chantal LeClerc + 11 Years Old + a Group Cha Cha
I began Ballroom dancing because...
"When I was 11 years old my mother forced me to take ballroom dance lessons. It was the worst year of my life. I was very shy and a slow learner. Each week, before my lesson, I had a hard time sleeping I was so worried. At the end of the year we did a little group cha cha dressed in ugly costumes. And our little group had a mini-competition against each other. My partner and I came in dead last. Afterwards my mother told me that I didn’t have to take ballroom dance lessons the next year. I think she felt sorry for me. She was very surprised when i told her that I wanted to sign up for the next series to prove that I could do it."
