Excuses. Ugh. I hate it when people make excuses. "I can't focus. I can faintly hear country music playing in the other room and I don't like country music." Get over it. "I've never danced before." Yeah, nor have 95% of my wedding couples. Listen to me and do what I say, and you will do something that resembles dancing. "I couldn't get him/her to practice with me." I told you it's better to practice alone than not at all. "We didn't have time to practice." I told you five minutes a day is better than nothing. You seriously couldn't find five minutes? Well, now we spend half of your $60 lesson re-learning what you forgot. Great investment. "This is hard." Duh. Whoever told you learning to dance was easy lied to you. "We don't look like we're dancing." You've been dancing for 20 minutes. For the first time in your life. Of course you don't look like dancers. I'm not going to sound like I'm speaking Mandarin, or playing piano, or surfing, 20 minutes into my first lesson, either. Why do people not get that dancing is a skill that requires training of both your mind and body? This isn't The Matrix, where you download a module and you've got it. Oy!
