Posted:I had to do Ballroom Dance as part of school. At first everyone in my class did not want to do it, even the girls. But by the end of the term everyone was having a great time.

I found ballroom dancing quite fun and quite tiring at times aswell.

Posted:My parents almost become Australian Title Ballroom dancers but then my father knocked my mother up with my older sister and they had to give it up.

But to this day I still love watching my parents dance...they are magnificent.

So during the years I have picked up a couple of the dances (very basic moves though) just by watching my parents.

Gather your harps from the willow trees, dust off the ancient strings. Call the bards and prophets, let them sing healing and freedom. Let light and love flow from the strings, colors of revelation.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.
