“To touch, to move, to inspire. This is the true gift of dance.” – Aubrey Lynch
Because it’s fun! For those skeptical men out there, yes, it really is (Just give it a try! We had many neysayers love it after just one lesson.) And because it’s a lot more fun than working out… and it will work out a lot of your muscles you didn’t even know you had. It’s a great way to spend date night and a wonderful way to meet people. It’s a great way to impress or (pleasantly) surprise your party guests (at a wedding or anniversary, on a cruise, or flash mob – OK, maybe not a flash mob but a spontaneous danceathon – those happen!).
Ballroom dancing has variety, so there is something in it for everyone: from salsa to Viennese Waltz and everything in between. You won’t get bored.
“We are all fools, so we might as well dance,” says a Japanese proverb. And who are we to argue? The dance floor is waiting for you!
Who can dance?
Like Chef Gusteau said in Rattatouille, “anyone can cook,” the same is true in dancing: anyone can dance. It just takes two…to tango: it takes the student to want to learn and the teacher who can adapt to the student’s learning style.
The popularity of TV shows such as Dancing with the Stars might have helped you make up your mind that ballroom is fun and can be done without having prior dancing experience. Word of caution: what you see on TV are rehearsed routines. Those are a lot of fun and you can certainly learn some yourself. However, I usually prefer to begin by teaching the basic steps of the six major dances: Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, ChaCha, Swing. Of course, there are other dances that I love to teach by popular demand, such as the salsa or bachata.
