People talk: Who taught you to dance?

By From page A2 | July 11, 2012

David Aviles, Orangevale: “It was MTV. I’d be dancin’ around the living room to House of Pain at 4 p.m. every day.”

Bob Peterson, Folsom: “I learned to dance in Miss Purdue’s high school gym class. It was a long time ago in Minnesota. We did the waltz and the fox trot.”

Elena Villescaz, West Sacramento: “My mom taught me to dance. There was always music in our house. She played it while she was cooking, cleaning house or whatever. We did the Cumbia, the Salsa, the Merengue, you name it. She also taught me how to dirty dance.”

Justin Carrillo, Roseville: “We started with slow dancing in middle school then graduated to dances like the Running Man. That was hot. Now my kids dance to Dub Step, whatever that is.”

Peter Brophy, El Dorado Hills: “I learned with friends in the Geoffrey Chaucer junior high in the UK. We did, you know, disco and pop and stuff.”

    I never learned how to dance, I just fake it. Is that why I get strange looks?
