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
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 26 years, I have my own dance studio (for 11+ 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.
