I never thought in a million years that I could do it. But, at 65, the time was right to challenge myself, and it all payed off last night at the 8th Annual DWOS Gala.

Even though it was only 1 minute and 30 seconds, we were dancing. It was something I never thought I could do, and the most fulfilling part of it all was knowing that Tara and I, along with seven other couples, were helping to fill the shelves with food for Hillside Food Outreach.

The professional instructors from Arthur Murray Dance Studios in Danbury and White Plains not only donated their time, but provided complimentary lessons to all of us, and what an amazing group of individuals. Our professional partners, Nicole, Tara, Andy, and Heather were compassionate, kind, patient, and encouraging while making the entire process a blast!

I used to be one of those haters who always made fun of people who took dance lessons, telling myself I would never be that person. I take it all back, because in reality, it turned out to be challenging, and a great time. Mindy and I would like to thank everyone who supported the two of us through their contributions to Hillside.

If I can do it, so can you. If you've ever thought about taking dance lessons, I highly recommend the Arthur Murray Dance Studios on Main Street in Danbury. For information on pricing, and what they offer, call Nicole Almeida at 203-792-0176.
