Mark Brock + Football + a Girlfriend
I began Ballroom dancing when...
"I was playing for the Chicago Fire in the World Football League and got released. My girlfriend’s dad managed an Arthur Murray Studio and she suggested that I see him for a job while I waited to play ball again. When I went for the interview they asked, “Why do you want to be a dance teacher?”, I replied, “I kinda need the money”. Apparently I was the only person with that answer and I got hired. It turned out pretty well because after four more years the writing was on the wall that I wouldn’t be a pro ball player and I was loving the dancing."
