Grieving the loss of a spouse or dealing with your children moving away from home, can be a very difficult time in one’s life. These life changes can make a person feel the desire to want to do something enjoyable to distract the mind and comfort the soul. For Pat Babson, enhancing her dancing ability was the answer.


Nearly six months ago, Pat decided to begin taking lessons at the Fred Astaire Westerville studio after seeing an ad for two complimentary dance lessons in her church bulletin. She had always enjoyed social dancing but just never found the time to invest in private dance lessons until recently. Pat takes two lessons a week to refine her skill on the dance floor. She has participated in two local competitions and plans to compete in others in the future. She especially enjoys the movement of the Rumba and Foxtrot and according to her Instructor, Tango is one of her favorites.

Since beginning this dance journey, Pat has seen a significant change in herself both physically and emotionally. She feels more confident dancing and has the desire to want to continue to learn new steps while having fun. She has also enjoyed making new friends with others who also share her passion for dance. She recently joined fellow students at a New Year’s Eve celebration at the newly remodeled Valley Dale Ballroom in Columbus where they danced together and enjoyed each other’s company.

“Dance has improved my all around sense of well-being,” Pat said. “My balance has improved overall along with my muscle memory and learning how to think in a non-traditional way,” she added.

Pat enjoys working with the staff at the Westerville studio because they are patient, knowledgeable and the most fun. From day one the staff has welcomed her and made her feel part of the Fred Astaire family. They continue to encourage her and take pride in her development and progression as a student and dancer.

“Pat has a great personality and is a joy to work with on the dance floor,” said Instructor Keith Jastram. “Over these past several months, she has shown such improvement on the dance floor in her coordination, balance, confidence and overall fitness,” he added.

Off the dance floor, Pat enjoys spending her free time painting as well as following and discussing politics. She also worked in health information management as a medical record analyst.
