Set your spirit free and dance, dance, dance
Why dance?
You may have asked yourself this question at one time or another, and I can give you my answer.
First of all, dancing has been part of my life since I can remember. It was something that became very natural as soon as I was aware of music and rhythm, and I have loved it since. Furthermore, it has many benefits that make this activity even more appealing.

The ups and downs of the term - which have included the tragic loss of his best friend, Ted Horton, under his watch in a helicopter crash and the subsequent SBI investigation into the questionable helicopter program, NETSTAR (he was cleared of criminal wrongdoing) - have made him a better, stronger man and sheriff, he said.
