66 I FITNESS GET YOUR DANCE ON! NMSU's DanceSport Company offers free (and fun!) community classes for all ages Written by Isabel A. Walters Photography by Steven Kavanaugh New Mexico State University DanceSport Company has been helping students improve their dancing skills since 1999. Through the years, students in the group have competed in national competitions and brought home several championship titles. And thanks to the DanceSport club, even those of us in the community with two left feet no lon- ger have to feel like Seinfeld's Elaine Benes when we step out on the dance floor. Every Tuesday night, the group hosts free community dance lessons open to the public. "The classes are a fun and unintimidating way to learn social dance," says Ann Gavitt, dance program director in the Department of Kinesiology and Dance. "It is a nice way to meet others and a great way to get some exercise."
