Part 1/18: "Dancing Through Life" by Josephine Bradley - Introduction, Preface & Chapter 1
Welcome to this exclusive series on one of the legacies of Ballroom dancing dubbed the "Queen of the Ballroom" Josephine Bradley. Way back in the day [early 1900s] she was instrumental in the foundation of the ISTD [Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance] and pioneered Ballroom dancing to be standardized. This is a fascinating tale written by her about her life and adventures. Pull up a chair with a scotch and cigar or listen on the train and don't light up that cigar and let me narrate this tale along with my thoughts as we go along on a tale back in time.

Whether you're a seasoned dancer looking to refine your technique or a beginner eager to grasp the fundamentals, this episode is packed with invaluable wisdom that will revolutionize the way you think about practice and its role in your journey as a dancer.
