ABOUT DamnYankee (Login to Contact DamnYankee )

Fit, spontaneous, outgoing, married nearly 30-years . . . and intending to stay that way! But regrettably, my wife doesn't share my passion for dancing . . . and it's killing me! So, I'm seeking a dance partner: old/young, tall/short, gorgeous/plain, it matters not! For me, the ideal partner will be energetic for her age (like me), and want to add to her repertoire and technique (air steps, Balboa, anyone?) . . . maybe consider competition? Well, okay, I'm not sure about competition . . . but I DO think about it. So much so, in fact, that I'd love to find a partner willing to work-up an intermediate-to-advanced routine that could qualify for competition. In other words, if it's fun and challenging, I'm game!

DANCE HISTORY

Started with Tom & Debra about 10 or 12 years ago, then dropped out after my wife lost interest. After a six-year hiatus, wife cleared me to resume lessons solo. So, here I am, taking intermediate lessons with Dabe & Janelle (Wed evenings, Nick's Nightclub, Alexandria). "And so it goes!", as Kilgore Trout would say. Vonnegut/Slaughterhouse Five
