It’s that time of year again when you have to start thinking of holiday gifts for everyone on your list. While some people enjoy the hustle and bustle of the season, it can become extremely stressful as the days fly by, leaving you less and less time to check everyone off of your list. If you already have gift ideas and you just need to pick them up, doing your holiday shopping isn’t that bad. But, when you are trying to find something for those people that are especially hard to buy for (and you know who they are) it can take all of the fun out of it. This year, the team at Modern Ballroom Dance Studio in Woodbridge wants to help make your holiday season a little less stressful by explaining why dance classes can be the perfect gift for many of the people on your list.

For the Person Who Has Everything
Everyone has at least one person they know that seems to have everything. They’re the type of person that has every new piece of technology, a closet full of clothes, and everything they could ever need for their hobby. There’s simply nothing else you can possibly think of to get them — or is there? For the person who has everything, why not bless them with an experience! Things come and go, can get used up, lost, or stuffed in a closet, but dance classes are the gift that keeps on giving! Plus, you won’t have to worry about finding the right color, brand, or size. Dance classes are perfect for just about anyone!
For the Little Ones In Your Life
If you’re shopping for little ones, taking a walk down the toy aisle can be mesmerizing. What kind of toys do they like? What characters are they interested in? Unless the little ones you’re shopping for are your own, you probably don’t even know which toys they already have. Before you give up and just fill your cart with something that will be lost under the bed a few months from now, why not introduce the little ones in your life to the wonderful world of dance!
Dancing provides so many benefits to children — it’s a healthy outlet for their limitless amounts of energy, it builds confidence and improves social skills, and most of all, it’s fun! Instead of just buying them another thing that they really don’t need and will forget about by next Christmas, consider giving them the gift of dance.

For the Social Butterfly
We all have that friend or family member who loves to be at the center of attention. They post, tweet, and share every detail of their life and are happiest when they’re with a group. For this person on your list, we’d like to suggest dance classes as the perfect gift. Now, you might disagree — after all, this type of person usually has no problem getting out on the dance floor and encouraging everyone they see to do the same. However, dance classes aren’t just for those who usually sit on the sidelines, they’re also great for people who just naturally like to dance and may already be good at it!
A naturally outgoing person is probably comfortable with normal social dance situations, but they would probably also love to learn specific types of dances that they could show off on the dance floor. Dances like the Cha Cha, Bachata, and Salsa are upbeat, lively dances that are fun to learn. And, the social aspect of taking a dance class is sure to appeal to this person on your list.
For Your Friend Who Never Makes It To the Gym
Many of us struggle with finding the ambition to do what it takes to stay fit and healthy. Unless your job is a particularly physical one (like dance instructor!) you probably try to commit to a regular exercise program. For the person on your list who finds it particularly hard to get motivated to exercise, consider giving them the gift of dance classes.
Dancing is certainly a fun hobby to have, but many people quickly find out that it’s also a great workout! Dancing works your muscles and your cardiovascular system. It also improves your balance and coordination. It really is a complete workout for your entire body! If you know someone that doesn’t enjoy going to the gym, dance classes are the perfect solution. It’s something that they can actually look forward to — they will have fun and get in a good workout at the same time!
You’re not the only one who has a difficult time when it comes to buying gifts. Chances are, someone you know is having a hard time figuring out what to buy you! Why not give them a hint and make their life a little easier. Let them know about Modern Ballroom Dance Studio and how you’ve always thought about taking dance lessons. Or, if you want to be a little more subtle, you could mention that you’re planning to buy dance lessons for a friend and you think it would be really fun experience to be able to take lessons together.
