Out There - By George
A very funny and generous man who allowed me to use this wonderful cartoon in our early days. I think it describes dancers to a tee.

Dayle Eaton conjures up a different Latin and Standard sequence every month (and has done for years) to teach us the technique involved in making these sequences work for us on the social dance floor. This one was different. I jokingly said, "It nearly fills 16 bars, this is soooo lovely we could turn it into a Sequence Dance" and once those words were uttered, there was no turning back. With a little tweaking, Dayle entwined 16 bars of waltz figures with a rarely played waltz to give us the Winter Waltz, a hauntingly beautiful dance. A couple of the figures have been modified slightly to make them easier to dance. Please email us to request the script. We hope you enjoy the music and the dance.

An article by Richard Powers Stanford University
Interesting reading. I think we have always known that dancing keeps us more than just on our toes physically. The following article really highlights the benefits of dancing as a preventative measure against many other problems that perhaps you've not considered.
The advice is Dance Now, Dance Often.
