B is for Ballroom

Another one of the extracurriculars that my homeschooled kids participate in is ballroom dance.  It's lots of fun and good exercise too!  They go to a class which is made up of both homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers and the instructor is great!  They learn all kinds of dances from swing to polka to traditional waltz, and some circle-type dances.  It's a great weekly social event and learning fun!

My daughters jumped right in when given the chance to join the class, but my son wasn't so sure.  He was 15 at the time and the word "dance" turned him off :) BUT we actually made him go--told him he had to participate in one session (8 weeks, I think) and he begrudgingly went, but after the first couple of weeks he liked it and now (at 16) he loves it and is disappointed when it ends for the season!


  1. How fun! I loved my first ballroom dancing class in college. It would have been so fun when I was younger. What a great homeschool activity.

  2. That is neat! I have always wanted to learn ballroom dancing.
