    Whoo-hoo! Another AMWF couple who fell in love on the dance floor.

    Do they have any videos we can watch? I didn’t see a link.

    That is so awesome! My husband literally danced into my life, but we are not as professional as this couple!!

    However, we have been talking about taking lessons for fun! We both love to dance and sometimes have some impromptu dances in the comfort of our own home! 🙂

    This post brings back so many memories! I recognize some of the dance styles too. Thanks for posting this Joycelyn.

    Thanks for sharing this story Jocelyn! My Chinese fiance can dance (I think it’s the Latino influence spending his childhood in Argentina!) One of my happiest memories is when we were at a bar in a small mountain village very early on in our relationship and there was no one dancing so he took me onto the dance floor and taught how to dance (as much as you can in just a few minutes). I’d never been the first person on a dance floor before and I remember someone coming up to us and complimenting us on our dancing and me saying “I can’t dance, it’s all him!” A man who can dance is damn hot and I was so impressed with him at that moment 🙂

    What a talented couple! I used to danced in university competition with my wife too, but we never go really good at it. It had always been bit of a laugh and fun. Although I have to say, I would like to be as good as them…

    For a moment I thought it was, in fact, Autumn and her husband, haha! Until I saw they are in London…

      Ha, not me! I had to look up this Ceroc style of dance, actually. We are clearly old, unhip persons. But Andy and I had fun watching the routines:

      “Oh, that looks like hustle!”

      “West Coast Swing!”

      “Now it’s Cha-cha!”


      “Theater Arts!”
