Expression of love - dance

Yes, classes are on tonight. As a wedding dance specialist, I am always amazed how courageous committed couples are to leap forward with their love, and the boldness required to sustain it ...a First Dance is indeed the first of many dances...In reflection of Dr. MLK Jr's legacy, remember also our privilege to touch and feel togetherness. See you on the dance floor.
