Hi all, I'm new to this site and just as new to dancing.
I have been looking for a dance forum for ages, and I finally found this.
Me and my husband (both in our early 30's) have started latin dancing since Sept 2018. I used to dance when I was younger but my husband had absolutely no clue on dancing.
Anyways, we started with simple routines for Cha-cha, Jive and Samba so far. We struggled a bit with regards to beat in Samba. On the other hand, we're very confident in Cha-Cha.
Tonight we're going to start Quick Step.
Do you think we're too old to be dancing? Where we live, there are not much places where you can go to dance, so basically, we're just dancing at the studio as a hobby.
Any helpful tips for beginners would be appreciated.

I know many people more than twice your age who dance. Not only is it fun (the main reason to do it) but there are known health benefits, proven by real scientific studies. The benefits are mental as well as physical. As for places to dance, check usadance.org. USA Dance is a national organization that supports ballroom dancing. They have chapters all over the country, probably near you. They have monthly (sometimes more often) dances and other activities

I am from the tiny island of Malta, so not in the US.
