I'm a California native, and have been out here for just under a year now. My culture's idea of dancing is bumping and grinding, so I've never gotten into it. Now that I'm out here, I've noticed the difference. Being somewhat of a barbarian (guns, knives, martial arts, etc), the fact that I am taking piano lessons and now interested in dance confuses even me.
Either way, I want to learn some simple dance, ballroom I suppose. After dancing for my very first time for just about two minutes at a friend's wedding this week, I've been bitten. Hard. I now want to learn.
Any advice for me? Here was my main topic on the forums: http://community.artofmanliness.com/forum/topics/dancing
