“Social Dancing Saved My Life” – Here’s How

“Social Dancing saved my life. I used to sit home alone feeling sorry for myself.  Now I have lots of friends and I’m out of the house social dancing five nights a week.”  Anonymous quote.  

That is a real quote about the power of social dancing.  I don’t remember where I got it from, but I do know that many people feel this way.  Indeed, dancing changes lives.

So how will your life change when you learn social dancing?  Let’s take a look.

Do you have the right disposition for social dancing?

Are you the type of person who is shy and retiring?  Or do you find it easy to get out there and make new friends?

If you tend to be on the shy side, you’re sure to get caught up in the friendly ballroom dance community.  On the other hand, more outgoing personalities will enjoy meeting and dancing with a crowd of new people.

How do you manage stress?  

The challenges of everyday life can take a toll on anyone.  Be that as it may, leave the pressure behind as you stroll into the ballroom and hear the music.  You may feel stressed and exhausted when you walk in, but you won’t be when you walk out.

Are you healthy and in good physical shape?

Anyone, in any shape, can learn social dancing.  In fact, the beauty of it is that as you get better, you’ll want to be able to do more. Therefore, you’ll be inclined to adopt a healthy lifestyle so you can spend more time on the dancefloor.

Here’s some information that will give you tips on achieving a healthy lifestyle.

What are your feelings about aging?

I don’t know about you, but I like the poise and beautiful posture that comes with being a good dancer.  It results in more youthful energy, don’t you think?

Do you feel good about your appearance?

It’s easy to slack off in dress and grooming when you’re not socially active.  When you’re going out dancing, you’ll want to spend a few minutes sprucing yourself up.  It’s nice knowing that you look good as you’re doing something that makes you feel good.

For couples, how are you and your partner getting along?

As your relationship ages, it becomes important to find a way to refresh and renew your partnership.  For example, make a point of spending quality time with each other by social dancing.  What could be better than getting dressed up, going out, and holding each other all night long?  All t26t touching sounds intriguing, no?  

Social dancing has the man leading and the woman following. How does that sound to you?

When it comes to leading and following in real life, it’s important to accept that the roles will shift.  The reason for this depends on the situation. 

The only way to make this partnership thing work on the dancefloor is to have one leader.  He will manage the power of teamwork and cooperation.
