|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 9+ 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.
