The Benefits of Dancing
It is almost impossible to convey the many benefits that our students can receive as a result of dancing. Many singles and couples find that it has created more romance in their lives. Others rave about losing weight and all the health benefits. Others enjoy how fashionable they look and feel when out on the social dance floor.
While developing your dancing skills you should not be surprised if you:
- Feel more at ease & confident in social situations
- Get more fun & enjoyment out of your social life
- Enjoy increased self-confidence
- Meet new people and make new friends
- Improve your overall health
- Find the exercise and fitness you've wanted
- Make your partner happy
- Enjoy attending more special occasions
- Find your business relationships improving
- Acquire more grace and poise
- Dress up and have fun
- Overcome shyness
- Relieve stress
- Stand out on the dance floor
- Never say "no" to a dance invitation
- Discover recreation or entertainment in a new way
- Feel refreshed and relaxed
And last but certainly not least: Staying active and learning new skills can help prevent dementia. In a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, researchers found that people who ballroom-dance, an activity that provides a lot of intellectual stimulation, (keeping in rhythm, memorizing steps, not mashing your partners' toes), have a lower risk of dementia.
We encourage you to reap the wonderful benefits that dancing has to offer you. So, whether you are a beginner, a seasoned competition ballroom dancer, or just an enthusiast looking to pick up a couple of steps for weddings, parties, and dances, we’re here to help!
