Some of the best things in life seem to happen by chance. I think one of the luckiest days of my life was the day I had the nerve to stop in to ask about taking dance lessons at Cinema Ballroom. I'd drive by there every night after work, and it just looked so cool the way people were all dancing around the floor as I looked in the window. So one day I just did it, went in. When I did, I was offered a free private lesson-- and after just that lesson, I knew right away knew that I wanted to learn more. Soon I was a regular at the Ballroom, and have been ever since. It's in a really convenient location in St Paul-- half a block from Macalester College and across the street from the St. Clair Broiler. I look forward each week to my lessons-- Cinema Ballroom is staffed by great professional dancers that are also gifted instructors. Each lesson helps me build the skills I need to be a good social dancer, and it all happens in an encouraging, warm environment with a real feeling of community. It's not only a beautiful ballroom, It's just a fun place to be, any night of the week. I really love this place-- I've made some of the best friends I've ever had on the dance floor at Cinema, gotten fit without really realizing I was working out, and enjoyed every minute of it. Whether it's tango, waltz, foxtrot, quickstep, rhumba, swing dancing, salsa or other dances that you would like to try, I think everyone could benefit from taking even just one dance lesson, and there's no better place to go than the Cinema Ballroom. If you are like me, you'll be back for many more. Take a chance on dance-- and don't forget to tell 'em Eric sent you!
