Dancing With The Stars… Maybe Not, Tango Lessons Yes!

Granted these dancers are not Rumer Willis & Val Chmerkovskiy, current Dancing With The Stars champions, I wandered upon some teenagers who may very well be on their way to finding a love for dancing.

Here at Key Haven Park just north of Key West I stumbled on Tango lessons in progress. It appeared to be an organized function with the instructor in red  (without a partner) showing her students the correct next step. Well… that is except the couple on the far right that are in disagreement on who should be leading… or is she simply saying “Quit stepping on my feet!” 🙂

These future ‘Dancing With The Stars’ wannabees were having a great time as I watch them practice with camera in hand. Having been around dancers myself for the last 20+ years, it was easy to pick out the Tango beat of music. If these guys had any idea how much women like men that dance I assure you they’d keep on practicing! It’s true guys, I tell you no lies, I met my wife while dancing! Any form of dancing included whether it be: East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Cha-Cha, Waltz, 2-Step, Line Dance, or any of the many other styles of Ballroom such as Tango.

You can find this neighborhood park near Mile Marker 5.3 bayside by turning onto Key Haven Road. Timing your visit as they’re having Tango lessons on the other hand is a lot harder than finding the park! 🙂 Either way, the park backs up to a canal and has your standard playground equipment along with a covered pavilion and basketball court that doubles as a dance floor! 🙂
