In the title is everything.  Smiley

In my family i am the only dancer. my father don't dance (he is in soccer), my mother knows how to dance (she is a great follower), but she is not dancing so much because of my father.

on the wedding my father will dance one dance with me and her and that's it.

my brother is very talented for dancing. he learned waltz and cha cha and disco fox (hustle) when he was 3 years old. my grandfather was a quite good dancer (my grandmother told me that), but nobody else is dancing.

i have a big family, lots of cousins and 2 of them took dance lesson and stopped.

from whom i got this love for dancing and a talent for dancing - i don't know.  Huh

It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.

I know my mother and father used to dance. My mom was a swing dancer in her teenage years, and I can recall my parents going to house parties to do the bossa nova back when that was a fad in the '60s.  They don't dance anymore, but I was surprised a few years ago to find out that my mom danced WCS and still remembers some of it.  How she picked up WCS in Gadsden, Alabama in the '40s is a mystery to me.

My family has always danced, not all ballroom, but dancing never the less. My mother and father actually dance more then I do. They dance 4 days a week. They just dance for fun and some exercise.

Just me in my family... sometimes it's a lonely dance existence when I can't even talk about my hobby/love with them.

I do know a family in my area though that nearly ALL members dance... I'm very envious of that situation!

My mother was the one who got me in to dancing. She also got my sisters in at the same time, but I think I am the most dedicated to learning more. They just love to social dance.

My mother dances, (although currently  she cannot due to ill health), my daughter knows how to do new vogue but does not do it regularly.....

I know that there has been a time where three generations have been out together social dancing, and someone mentioned that would be a rare event in our community.

My mother comes from a dancing family, my father does not.  My sister took every type of dance class under the sun when she was growing up.
No one dances ballroom, though.

I'm the only one - and I'm from a large family of 7 children.  My son tried it, kinda liked it but then gave it up... maybe in the future

My parents and siblings do not dance. My son tried it a few years ago but dropped it, but maybe he'll go back to it when he gets older (he is 14). My husband dances socially, but we do not get along on the dance floor so we do not dance together and he has no interest in competitive side of it and not much in technical details either.

Okay, I dance ballroom!
I got my sister in to my former studio, but funnily enough, her husband liked it more than she did.  She didn't dislike it, but I don't know that she'd be up for the technical mastery that I feel is so necessary to my learning process. 
My mother would like to try, but my father won't. 
My mother, her sisters, and mygrandmother all knew the popular dances back in the day; I guess my grandmother would head out to the dance halls every chance she could when she was growing up. 
Her sister, my great-aunt, used to sneak out of the house if she was forbidden to go dancing by her father. 
I can see where I get my obsession with dancing!
