|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 dance family.
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
Now fast forward 22 years, I have my own dance
studio (for 7 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.

|SUSANA RUBIO's involvement with Tango goes back over 20 years, dancing in milongas,
workshops, and tango festivals, and assisting other instructors with classes and demonstrations.
She grew up with tango, listening to her grandfather's old recordings of Carlos Gardel, the most
famous tango singer of all time. She was later privileged to attend the classes of many great
instructors. With the encouragement of an internationally renowned dancer and mentor, peers,
and friends she found her love for teaching and bringing the joy of this seductive dance to
others. Susana's students range in age from 14 to 84. Her goal is to share the passion of
Argentine Tango with as many individuals as possible, so they experience the incredible hold
this wonderful dance has on everyone who tries it.
