While you may or may not be guilty of this egregious and oh-so-grievous sin, you probably have been in close proximity to one who has.

So close.

So very, very close.

Close enough for them to step on your sore feet, willy-nilly.

    yep altho Im not too bad all those years of ballet. and then Daddy insisted I take ballroom dancing lessons too. I hated it until I met my first crush then it was not so bad. I was 12 almost 13.

  2. Winnie Nielsen says:

    Well, I had ballet and tap lessons for about 4 years as a child. Then, it was the thing that 6th graders take ballroom dancing which I also did. Did it help me to dance or be graceful?? Nope! I was more likely than not, the one stepping on someone else’s feet.

  3. Krista says:

    I danced almost my whole childhood and up until I was 18 years old. I miss dancing a lot and I believe it provided me with much grace. Now that I am years past dancing, I am more likely to balter, but not as much as my husband though!!
