Learn to dance a simple waltz and note the importance of the leader / follower relationship.

Ballroom dancing is a beautiful demonstration of a leader / follower relationship. Traditionally, the man leads and the woman follows. Either way, the dance couple needs to agree on who the leader is.

To enjoy the cooperative experience of ballroom dancing as a family, borrow a book or DVD from a library, or search online for instructions on how to dance a simple waltz.

Practice with another family member until you master the basic steps. Have fun laughing over missteps and the bumps that occur when one partner is not in step. Be sure to relish your sense of accomplishment when you are able to waltz well!
