I have often heard beginning dancers say that they don't have the opportunity to dance. I will admit that dancers living in a large city may have more ready made opportunities to dance in the form of dance studios. But if you live in a small community, don't despair. There are also studios in small towns.
If you are lucky enough to live near a studio, they usually rent dance space for a couple to come in and practice. Smooth dances, as the waltz and foxtrot, require a large studio floor for practice.
In contrast, Latin dancing requires only a small area that can usually be found in the home. I have built many a wood practice floor. Any lumber store will cut boards to your size and with a bag of screws (or nails) and drill/hammer, you'll have your Latin floor in no time.
Various organizations offer dancing in a comfortable facility. For example, the Elks, Eagles, VFW and YMCA. The dance floors are usually excellent and free dance lessons are often offered before social dancing begins.
As a beginning dancer, the more you practice, the better you will become and once you are hooked, there is no limit to where your dancing will take you. Spread your wings and fly off, my little eaglets. The world awaits good dancers.
