Meet the Marvins – Western Colorado’s Incredible Dancing Couple [PHOTOS]
By now you've seen them. It is virtually impossible to attend a dance, concert, farmer's market, or festival without seeing this incredible couple. These folks know how to cut a rug. I mean, they really know how to dance. We're talking "Dance!" Get to know them a little better. Let's meet the Marvins.
Husband and wife Bruce and Tanya Marvin have been married for 41 years. You've probably wondered if they met through dancing, or if they picked up later as a couple. Well, 'Enquiring' minds want to know, and we have the answer.
As it turns out, Bruce and Tanya had been married for some time before they took up dancing. As a matter of fact, the kids were already grown and out of the house before the couple took their first dance steps.
According to Tanya, the idea to take up dancing was her idea. Originally, Bruce was not interested. Ultimately, though, he realized letting Tanya go it alone was probably not a good idea.
I couldn't turn her loose on this town alone. I couldn't afford the bail money." - Bruce Marvin
