We’ll be honest, taking ballroom dance classes isn’t always the first thing people think of when asked what they are planning to do with their free time. The world is a busy place are there are so many options for ways to spend your time: Shows, dinner dates, sporting events, festivals, family gatherings, and the list goes on. With so many places to go, people to see, and things to do, why would you make time for ballroom dance lessons?
At Modern Ballroom Dance Studio, we know that not everyone is as excited about dancing as we are. For some people, they feel awkward or uncoordinated. Others may be shy and not feel comfortable dancing in front of or alongside someone else. And then there are those that think ballroom dance is a thing of the past — something that is outdated and no longer has a purpose. If you happen to fall into one of these three groups, we’re here to hopefully change your mind. In today’s post, we’ve put together a list to show you all of the reasons why you should take ballroom dance classes. Keep reading, and then give us a call to learn more.
Meet New People
When you sign up for ballroom dance lessons, you’ll meet all sorts of fun-loving and interesting people. Unless you’re one of the few people that prefer to stay at home and not socialize at all, we think you’ll love getting to know the people that are part of your dance classes.
What kind of people sign up for ballroom dancing? People that like to learn new things, enjoy being around people and be the life of the party. You’re not just learning to dance so you can show off your new skills at the next wedding you attend, you’re opening the doors to all kinds of new social events. You’ll feel comfortable going to venues that you might not have before, and if you get a passion for it as we have, you may even find yourself with a new full-time hobby.
Regardless of what you decide to do with your dance training, we’re certain that you’ll meet great people that you never would have met otherwise.
It’s Good Exercise
People spend millions of dollars every year trying to find ways to get fit and lose weight. Most people who buy gym memberships in January stop going by the time March rolls around. And what about those expensive, trendy pieces of gym equipment? Have you ever bought one for the convenience of being able to workout at home only to have it turn into a place to hang your laundry a few months later?
What if you could get great exercise from doing something that you love? It would make it easier to stick with it and it wouldn’t feel like you were exercising at all. For many people, ballroom dancing has become their exercise of choice. Just ask anyone who dances regularly — it’s really hard work! Dancing tones your muscles, improves your coordination, and strengthens your cardiovascular system. Want to get in the best shape of your life? Take up dancing and just see what it will do for you!
Learning to dance is a great confidence-builder! Especially if you are someone that tends to shy away from the dance floor, learning this skill can make you feel less-intimidated and maybe even excited the next time the opportunity to dance arises. For those that feel like they have “two left feet”, it can be liberating once you realize that you can actually learn how to dance. If you can overcome this obstacle in your life, what else might you be able to accomplish that you thought was out of reach?
