|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 my miracle.
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.
