Today Aaron and I took our first group dance lesson at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Wexford. We learned the rumba! It’s a slow latin dance that can be used for most slow to medium tempo songs.
There were a lot of people in the class so we were able to move around and rotate to new partners. We had a fantastic time learning a nice little routine and dancing with other partners of varying experience. I wish my Groupon lasted longer than a few lessons!
