Guys Who Dance are Popular with the Ladies and How Long Until I’m a Confident Dancer? are two of the most viewed posts on the Dance Safari blog. People read them because they speak not only about dancing, but also about life. Because it opens up a world of adventure, I challenge you to decide to ballroom dance and see where it gets you!
The pursuit of happiness.
Ballroom dancing is a hobby that can’t be done without the company of others. When you decide to ballroom dance, you get to share your knowledge and skills with other dancers. Here’s your chance to make lifelong friends with whom you have something in common – the love of dancing.
One good thing about ballroom dance is you’ll never run out of stuff to learn. As a result, imagine the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel as you work towards achieving your goals.
Stay youthful and actively enjoy life when you decide to ballroom dance.
You can dance anywhere
- Weddings and parties
- Dance clubs
- Dance studios
- Your local watering hole
- Restaurants with music – live or DJ
- Beach, pool, park
- Your house or your friend’s house
- Vacations, especially on cruise ships
- Celebrations – Quinceanera, Sweet 16, Wedding First Dance
- Or, if you’re like me, you’ll practice dancing at the supermarket, unaware that, even back in the day, there were cameras watching my every move. Oops!
There are many reasons to take up dancing with a partner.
- Are you looking for a workout that doesn’t wear you out?
- Do you want to make a particular person happy?
- Are you interested in keeping your mind active and healthy with the challenge of learning a new hobby?
These are just a few of the many benefits of ballroom dance. Think about the confidence that comes with smoothly managing your time on the dance floor. Your feelings of poise and fearlessness will spill over into other areas of your life as you hold your head up knowing you look and feel better than ever.
Personally, I am grateful for the experiences I had when I decided to ballroom dance. I met and danced with many people while forming life-long friendships, performed on stages and television, competed at the highest level in the United States, and traveled to dance or perform in places I only dreamed about.
When I tell folks what I do for a living they say, “Oh, I’ve always wanted to ballroom dance!“. Now’s the time to get moving and make dreams come true. It’s the right decision.
