A Day In The Life of a Ballrom Dancer – Wednesday, May 13, 2015
Aggie Beletsky, Dancer, says there is nothing better than dance. She teaches ballroom dancing for the YMCA at the Chesapeake. Aggie says she teaches many dance classes that have to be done with a partner.
Aggie says that her students take lessons for various reasons. There are wedding couples, empty-nesters who are looking to reconnect, couples who have a passion for dancing, and then there are single ladies and gentlemen who just enjoy dancing and want to meet new people.
Sean learned how to do the Waltz box with Aggie. Sean realized that ballroom dancing takes a lot of concentration. Aggie said ballroom dancing is about creating muscle memory and it takes about a hundred to a thousand times of repeating a step for it to be automatic. Sean admitted that he enjoyed ballroom dancing.
