Ballroom dancing has long been a part of the social scene for many adults, but in recent years it has seen a marked increase in popularity. Many people fear that they are too uncoordinated to learn how to dance, or worry that it's too complicated. Not true! Here are 10 reasons why it's a great idea to dance:
-- Dancing increases self-confidence: Learning something new is always a bit difficult at first, but learning how to dance under the guidance of someone who knows how it is done can help make you more self-confident. You will find yourself saying: "Yes, I can do this!"
-- Dancing is great exercise: Even if you are an avid gym rat, you are bound to get tired of the same old exercise routine. Dancing burns tons of calories and workout time goes quickly because you're having so much fun!
-- Make new friends: Going to a dance class or to a club where steps are taught before dancing begins is a fantastic way to meet new people. Chances are, if you are new to dancing, someone else there is too. By nature, dancing is a social activity: take advantage of it.
-- Dancing can be so romantic: If you are looking to rekindle that flame with your partner, dancing just might be the ticket to do it. Once you know the steps, gliding around the floor with your loved one will make your hearts beat faster for each other in more ways than one!
-- You need a new hobby: One can only do so much needlepoint in a lifetime.
-- Hey, I'm really good at this: Maybe you'll find that dancing becomes more than a hobby; you may discover a serious talent that you didn't even know you had. Then, if you're really lucky, that new hobby will become a passion and a joy in your life.
-- Learn to carry yourself with poise: Dancing is graceful by nature, and your newfound skill will translate into everyday elegance if you let it.
-- Dancing will enrich your life: everyone needs something to look forward to. "Dancing Night" will give you a great reason to get up in the morning.
-- Shed some of your inhibitions and get over that fear once and for all: Aren't you tired of feeling awkward whenever you are at a wedding or some other event where your partner may want to dance? Once you learn the basics, you'll be just fine out on that dance floor.
-- Learning to dance provides a great sense of accomplishment: This is true of learning anything new in life, isn't it?
Many people fear that they are too clumsy to learn how to dance, but really, anyone can learn. It may mean sticking your neck out at first, but you'll find that people in the dancing community are warm and welcoming and are eager to help you learn. So get out there!
