Dancing can seem like its own language.  Learning to dance can certainly feel like learning a new language.  But, once we get the hang of things like "letters," "words," and "sentence structure," we're ready to learn more!  Maybe we're ready for something like "creative writing."  That's where Dance-O-Rama's or DOR's come in.
