The popularity of the hit show 'Dancing With the Stars' has sparked a renewed interest in ballroom dancing.

It's not just your grandparents’ waltz anymore. Ballroom dancing now includes the samba, the tango, or even the mambo and various other styles of dance.

"It put ballroom back in front of the people. I think that it has created a lot of interest in it again, and I am so pleased to see that," said Mary Alpha Donnelly of the Alpha School of Dance.

Donnelly is considering starting a ballroom dancing class for adults after receiving so much interest in it.

Jeff Anderson Regional Medical Center has already started a ballroom dancing class and could be adding another.
