Why didn't anyone tell me?

Ballroom dancing is fun, magical and, most of all, life-changing. When I first started learning ballroom though, I fumbled around awkwardly and sometimes painfully, figuring things out as I went along. Certain things weren't explained or just never came up in conversation. From what to expect in class to how to find the right teacher or dance partner to how much ballroom really costs, Dance Diaries: Learning Ballroom Dance covers the things that I wish I had known when I first started learning ballroom. This quick read is your cheat sheet to help you get the most out of your ballroom experience.


Where do you go to learn ballroom dance? Why should you try it in the first place? How much does it cost? What do you do during a dance lesson? What do you do with the dancing after you learn it? I tell you all these things and more in Dance Diaries: Learning Ballroom Dance. You'll also be prepared for the awkwardness that no one really talks about, like the physical contact and the dynamics of your relationship with your dance teacher. With this quick read, you'll learn all of the things I WISH I had known when I first started learning ballroom dance. 

About the author

Katie is known as the Girl with the Tree Tattoo because of the tree of life tattoo that covers her entire back. She has been taking ballroom dancing lessons since December 2012 and competing in pro-am ballroom competitions since April 2014. It was through ballroom dance that Katie started to discover who she really was and what she was capable of, despite the demons of fear, self-doubt, and anxiety that live in her head. Through sharing her own experiences, Katie hopes to lead others to experience the amazing effect ballroom dancing can have on a life.
