Learning To Enjoy the Performing Arts

I was raised on a farm, so I didn't have the luxury of being exposed to the arts at an early age. To us, checking out our neighbor's new tractor was just about as much enjoyment as we could muster on a day to day basis. Fortunately, by the time I got to college, I was exposed to all different kinds of performing arts, and I fell in love. I joined a ballroom dance team, and it really gave me the opportunity to use my talents to make other people happy. My blog is dedicated to teaching other people the basics of the performing arts.
