i'm the same - don't think i've ever danced without dutch courage ...... of course then it doesn't matter that i have two left feet :o0 H2B is as bad - think Chandler Bing in Friends. He's up for getting lessons but i'm worried cos i don't think they can teach you rhythm!

Stick to the basics so. The Waltz has 3 steps, simply 123, 123 and you move in a box shape. If you look it on Youtube there are some instructional Clips. *)

My hubby was very nervous about first dance as he felt he had no rhythm and never learned any waltzes etc. We went to a VEC evening class for ballroom dancing (they usually start around sept oct). It was for about 10 weeks,and I think it only cost about 60 each. It was a bit of a laugh and there were lots of couples who seemed to be there for same reason as us. We didn't do any of the actual dances at our wedding but felt more comfortable dancing in front of everyone.
