|Let me give you some backdrop to my (John Harris) dance
story. When I was 15, my Dad left my Mother. For about a
year my Mom was a complete mess until she ran into a dance
studio named "Dance Connection". It was not a place filled with
the prettiest or wealthiest of people, it was just filled with some
of the nicest, caring people you ever will meet. I will tell you
that the family my Mother created with the members of that
studio saved her from her misery. They danced together, they
would get together on holidays and celebrate together, they
would even get together to help move each other, they were a
Fast forward several years and I was turning 20. I was a shy
kid with very little self-confidence when it came to meeting new
people or having conversations with groups of people (some of
that had to do with the awkwardness of going though
high-school at 6'4" and rail thin and part of it had to do with the
fact that I'm half deaf). My Mother, looking for a second
miracle, pushed me into going to "Dance Connection" (I was
more than a bit unwilling, as I was told frequently by people
that I lacked talent in dance) with the hope that I would be able
to make some new friends. Over the next 6 months, I spent
every single night dancing there, followed by a trip after class to
a local country dance bar for social dancing afterwards. Not
only did I meet some awesome individuals and find plenty of
self-confidence; I also became quite the dancer. I had found a
dance family of my own. We would dance together, eat
together, sometimes we'd go on vacations together, it was
everything I needed, it was my miracle.
Now fast forward 20 years, I have my own dance studio (for
6+ years now) and I am hopeful that I can be half as successful
in creating an atmosphere that will allow each of you to find
your dance family as Grant Austin's Dance Connection down in
Fort Lauderdale did for me and my Mom. With that in mind, we
have created a schedule of dance events that allow each of you
to learn to dance, to make new friends, and become part of a
community, part of our dance family. - John Harris
