Now that the Holiday Season is wrapping up it is time to consider that dreaded New Year's resolution list. If that list includes the usual getting back into shape, spending some quality time with folks and discovering, or even rediscovering an interesting activity, then dancing may be the way to go.
While formal dancing may look easy, it does require attention to detail, good memory skills, physical dexterity, an awareness of tempo and beat of the music, and above all patience and a sense of humor. Becoming proficient in American Ballroom is an interesting and worthy challenge which when mastered can provide a lifelong interest and a source of considerable enjoyment. Classes will begin soon at Collage Performing Arts Center at 214 Eagle St. in Fredonia.
