Things your Dance Instructor Wish You Knew
When it comes to dancing, it's not about the destination...it's about the journey. Why? Because people take dance lessons for many reasons. We may all be on the same path together, but in the end we have different goals. Dance instructors know this. They can spend up to 10 hours a day in the studio dealing with the same issues over and over again. Perhaps we get intimidated by more advanced dancers, or someone who's taller, or in better shape.

To find out more trade secrets, listen to Brain B and Roberto talk about all the things that your dance instructor wish you knew.
