Item description for Dancing With Natasha by Barbara Haller Gregory Causey...
Dancing With Natasha, written by Greg Causey, takes the reader from "I Can't Dance," to "I'm A Dancing Machine," detailing the often agonizing, but always rewarding endeavor of learning Ballroom Dance. In this engaging, witty and poignant memoir, Greg and his wife Joan make the frightening trek to the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Dayton, Ohio, for a few lessons to better enjoy the professional formal functions they attend. What they find is nothing short of miraculous. In her own exuberant style their instructor Natasha explains how she moves beginners who consider the 'obligatory grope' on the floor to be dancing, to graceful self-expression. With the foreword written by Barbara Haller - Four-time United States Professional Theatrical Arts champion, and details from other students, instructors, and dance pros, Dancing With Natasha will give the reader an uncommon peek into this incredibly popular and exciting endeavor.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dancing With Natasha?
A journal, but not a book. Mar 19, 2008
"Dancing With Natasha" is a type of journal of the author's experiences learning ballroom dancing, including his nerves, his confusion, and his enjoyment in the process. The book also includes a few short chapters written by his ballroom instructor concerning the learning process. Overall, the memoir provides an overview of the experiences and emotions involved in learning and teaching ballroom dance. The writing does not provide much in the way of deeper analysis or reflection. Instead, it seems like the writer decided to publish his personal journal from learning to dance, with his teacher's reflections and a few quotes on dance thrown in. I was not impressed with this book, but I can see how a nervous ballroom dance student might appreciate the author's attempts to articulate his own doubts and difficulty with ballroom dancing. The writing, the organization, and the deeper relevance for the reader are all missing. I would not recommend this book.
