Thank you all for the warm welcome! (and boy do I need a warm welcome today, it's -17C here!!)

For some reason, turning 40 was what it took to shed my attitude that I was too old and fat to take up dancing again. Now that I have taken it up, I am finding all kinds of people coming out of the woodwork to say they have done or are doing some version of MED. My mother-in-law, a 70 year old cousin, several online friends... All have said how much it empowered them and made them more comfortable in their own skin.

I am very happy that I started and I believe I have found something I will do for the rest of my life - it feels so good to dance!
