Patrick Swayze gives James kudos on the dance. "I have to acknowledge your willingness and your courage as a man to do this," he says. "Very few guys would do that."
Patrick and his wife, Lisa, have been married for 32 years. "You guys have a chance of getting there if you started off this way, you know? Because it's really rare when a man is willing to get past what anybody else thinks or what anybody else says," Patrick says. "And be there to serve, you know? Because, really, that's what dancing is all about, is you're not complete until you see yourself or each other's reflection in each other's eyes."
Absolutely, James says. "And you know what? I'm actually going to get Julia to learn to surf for making me do that dance," James says.
Sharing interests is also important to Patrick and his wife. The couple just finished a dance movie called One Last Dance, which is now available on DVD. "We had to turn back into classical ballet dancers one more time," he says. "When you're an old guy, it's not easy, you know?"
Patrick and Lisa also share a passion for flying and have been pilots for 20 years. Lisa has even started flying aerobatic stunts and beat seven pros in her first competition, Patrick says!
