Dancing for the wrong reasons ... Hmm, do we all do it without being quite aware? Let's see. A bit of thinking is required here

But we all know someone who dances or started dancing for the wrong reason. Is it OK to start this way and fall in love and continue dancing? or is it always a bad idea to start danicng for any other reason but the love of dance?
