Deidra and Juan were referred to me through a friend and when I heard what they had planned I was so happy they booked me for their Chicago party. They both live in New York and have family there and Chicago. They decided not to have a typical wedding but instead made two great parties of it. They planned two parties and told each side of their families they were having an engagement party, one in New York for Juan's side of the family and Deidra's mother. Then the next day,
September 10th was a very exciting day for me. My 4 yr old daughter took her first ballroom class. Some may know this and many may not but I took 5-6 yrs of training in ballroom myself and did some competing. I started at an Arthur Murray in Indiana but then transferred to the Chicago downtown studio when my job relocated me to Chicago. I took lessons there for a while and even danced while I was pregnant. I danced all the way through my pregnancy but stopped in my 8th month.
