If you are a beginning dancer, or
someone that really wants to take their dancing to a higher level, then
this site is for you! Remember, Members
have access to EVERYTHING that we do! All dances are broken
down, step by step,
available to you whenever you want to practice. I know how frustrating
it can be to try and remember what you learned in dance class, go home
and want to practice and then find out a week later that you have
practiced it all wrong! Don't let that happen to you! You can now download and view Night Club and Country Two Step to your computer
and watch them full screen. West Coast Swing is coming soon!
Tuesday Night Class Videos, Wednesday Night Class Videos, The Ballroom Workshop Re-Caps, and
The Borderline Re-Caps.
Hope all is well and sunny in your worlds.
Dance Off the
Thanksgiving week has passed and I know that I ate too much,
so I though that it
would be appropriate to share a few Health Benefits of
Dancing, aside from being a fun and enjoyable social
also very beneficial in many ways. Did you know that dancing:
- increases body coordination
- helps control your speed and balance
- increases your flexibility and stamina
- benefits your cardiovascular system
- contributes to good posture and body alignment
- encourages gentle stretching
- boosts your confidence
Did you know that a 150 lb. person burns 330 calories in one hour and
average Thanksgiving Dinner is over 4500 calories!! That's at least 2,000
extra calories for the day. To burn off those extra calories would
6 hours of dancing, which sounds like a lot more fun than exercising!
For more detailed information regarding the health benefits of dance
In my opinion the most important benefit you will
receive is that
heart-warming feeling that comes from dancing. The
connection with your
dance partner, the beautiful music, and the body movement is something
The Gift of Dance
Yes, Christmas is right around the corner and I must say
that one of the greatest gifts that I have ever given myself is the
gift of dance.(of course, that falls in line after the obvious
blessings in my life: God, family, health, freedom, etc.)
This gift I would like to share with others.
For those of you that already have it, you know exactly what I am
talking about. Dancers', do you realize that when you dance with a
beginner, or someone that has less experienced than you, you are
sharing your gift with them. Your encouragement and patience will
brighten their day. For those of you that have never danced, I implore
you to give it a try. It will be frustrating at first, but hang in
there, you cannot imagine how dance will change your life.
It does not matter how difficult my day was, how many
times "Murphy" followed me around and tripped me up or how many things
still on my list that still need attending to, all it takes to brighten
my day, are the words, "You want to go dancing?" As soon as the music
begins, and my body starts to move, all of the stress and frustrations
of the day are completely forgotten. You see, dancing brings peace and
joy to your soul. It will lift you up and make your heart sing!
So, if you are home with the kids all day, or maybe
tending to an ill or aging loved one, or just simply overwhelmed with
life in general, I challenge you to get out there and dance! Take a few
hours a week, just for you.
There are many places that offer free dance lessons.
Group lessons are available at local recreation centers and dance
studios. If you feel intimidated by those options, or just find that
you need the reinforcement from your classes, please check out our
website: www.learntoballroomdanceonline.com It is our desire to bring
the joy of dancing to everyone that can walk and fog a mirror!

Keeping Up with the Ras-Girls
Michele Rasmussen. It is my wish to share my
love of dance with anyone interested.
sure that I share many of the same hopes and
dreams as many of you, and
I hope to share the
joy that I have found by "Learning to
Dance in the Rain".
Here's what our members are saying ...
"I can't believe it. I have wanted to learn to dance and couldn't find a single dance lesson in my town. Yeah whoo! I love you guys."
"It was exactly what I was looking for."
"I live in a really small town where there are no dance lessons. Thank you so much, I can almost Cha Cha now!!
"Your site saved the day for me. The basic steps I learned from your dance instruction videos helped me quickly be able to keep up on the dance floor with some of the better more experienced dancers. I'd been struggling for so long. Thank you!
"I can't say enough about how valuable your site has been to our dance club. We are brand new with little local instruction, your site is helping us all learn how to dance! Can't wait for the videos!!! Thanks!."
