For our Nutcracker performance, he is in the party scene with me and we do very limited "ballroom-type" dancing and more acting. Over the summer he was also in the company's performance of "A Midsummer's Night Dream" which has a little more dancing and partnering, but still not a lot. He would never take a full ballet class; but he does have fun with the performances we do together. It helps that there are a few other husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend couples who also do these performances with us.

My husband simply cannot. He's dyslexic and can't tell right from left. It would be a disaster. My dear friend brings her fiance to adult open class once in a while, and he has a lot of fun! The goal is that he will get good enough to try partnering her for fun someday. I hope he improves enough to do so! In the meantime, she's not ditching her actual dance partner anytime soon haha!

My de facto husband refuses to dance any kind of dance. And he's never even seen me in a dance class, even though I take classes 4 to 6 times a week. He's watched me and my school perform, and I have managed to drag him to a performance by the Korean National Ballet, but I just can't get him excited about ballet.

My boyfriend was professionally trained and doing a class with him ruins any delusions I might ever have about being any sort of dance princess! I've taken class with him and from him. In our case, I'm the clumsy toad with two left feet and he's Prince Charming. He's a beautiful dancer, and I'm, well, an adult recreational dancer. But it's fun dancing with him, as long as I'm not in a silly insecure mood.
He's also so much fun to watch ballet with. He's not into it at all anymore, but he has a great sense of humour and lots of appreciation for the male dancers.

Does taking a few classes with your teenage daughter count? Don't think I every worked so hard in any class before in my life.

Don't I wish! I've never had a partner who liked to dance, ever. Mostly I've considered myself lucky in love, but this is one thing that has escaped me!
