Okay, so I'm going to try my hand at creating a thread. Here's my question: What made you want to pursue ballroom? "Dancing with the Stars" and "Strictly Come Dancing" have made it more mainstream, but I don't really find it to be a common hobby, at least where I live. As for me, I was inspired by DWTS, and I wanted to avoid ballet. Ironically, now I take a weekly ballet class for adults that I've been involved in for four months now.
