|Let me give you some backdrop to my (John Harris) dance story. Before I ever started couples-dancing my Dad left my Mother
when I was 15. 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 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
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 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 basically spent every single night
dancing there, followed by a trip after class to a local country dance bar for 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 5+ 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
