Well, well, well, Dear Ones; our dearest and our Dear Heart Keith have begun rolling the proverbial ball. Yes, Dear Hearts, our dearest ones have signed up for their first private lesson on the journey to the competition floor. And was our dance teacher extraordinaire excited at the prospect. Indeed yes he was. In fact, Dear Ones, he has already begun formulating the needed ideas in advance of the lesson. We can tell you that he has many surprises in store for our dearest ones.
We shall leave it with our dearest to summarise.
Yes, this is the case. This evening we visited with a past teacher and have arranged for a weekly lesson beginning next Thursday week. He, and his gorgeous wife (also a teacher who will, hopefully, help with lessons) was absolutely overjoyed with this news. Both of them are very dear and have been very special friends over the years. They were one of the many genuine dancing friends who encouraged us all those years ago when we were competing. They were also a couple who kept us close to their hearts when I was ill for those 2 1/2 years; an illness which had brought an end to our dancing. Indeed, Keith found great solace having a caring friend in whom he could confide when he needed a shoulder to help him cope with the caregiver role in which he found himself.
And so it begins. We have a lot to relearn; routines to remember; practise sessions and stamina to rebuild. I know it will be great fun as well as a lot of hard work. However, the love we both have for dancing will see us through.
I do hope you will join with us as I post videos and images as we move forward.
As The C.C. have mentioned: It is only because of backwards aging that this is happening. I categorically know that without this I would not have the physical, mental or emotional strength to do as I know we will.

Resa of Graffiti Lux Art & More requested (in the comment section below) that I post Keith and I dancing a Tango. As I explained to Resa we haven’t a Tango routine as yet so I am posting the following little video which K and I did in 2011. We were the floor show at one of the wonderful balls we attend throughout the year. It showcases our Australian New Vogue dances. The first is a Viennese rhythm, the second a Slowfox and lastly a Tango.
You will need to be a little forgiving of the video quality. Though, as I said to Resa – “It does at least cover a smidgen of her request.”
