Birthday: January 9
Position/Employer: Owner, Let's Dance Studio
Family: Husband Dr. Yves Morissette; one daughter and two stepsons; four grandchildren
FCT: How many hours per week do you practice or teach lessons?
BM: I practice two to three times for five or six hours and I teach classes six to 10 hours.
FCT: Which dances do your students refer the most?
BM: Any of the ballroom dances are definitely popular. The waltz is a favorite for most people, along with the rhythm dances. I think shows like "Dancing with the Stars" have helped make ballroom dancing more popular.
FCT: Where do you enjoy going to dance?
BM: There's a place in Sheffield called Southern Stars. We all go as a group and the people there are very nice. Yves and I also like to go to Tupelo, Huntsville and Memphis.
FCT: What are some of your favorite places to eat out locally?
BM: We like everything – we love Italian and seafood.
FCT: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time besides dancing?
BM: We both love all kinds of sports, including mountain biking, hiking and running. We like to canoe and kayak, and Yves loves to sail. But since we've been dancing, learning new patterns and practicing has taken precedence for us.
