Ballroom Dance

Ballroom dance or “partner dance” is elegant and emcompasses two styles of dance. The first style is smooth such as waltz, foxtrot and tango and the second style is rhythm which includes cha-cha, swing, and salsa . It is not only a great form of exercise but it creates a unique combination of social interaction, mental stimulation, stress reduction, and more! The reasons to begin ballroom dancing are far reaching and we challenge you to find a reason NOT to start. 

Fun for all ages 

Unlike other sports, dancing does not have an age limit when it comes to the benefits. From children to older adults, dancing is a blast for all ages and skill levels. A customizable program will start new dancers off slow but still be challenging based on their physical abilities and skills and progress from there. 

Improves mental health 

There is a reason why everyone is smiling when they dance. From weddings to holiday parties, and classes, dancing not only helps improve our body but it has been shown to lift your spirits. 

Research has found that ballroom dancing improves mental acuity throughout a dancer’s life – and that there are also substantial benefits to those who start ballroom dance as adults. Ballroom dancing can help enhance memory, alertness, awareness, focus, and concentration. It can prevent the onset of dementia and significantly improve spatial memory in elderly patients. A win-win in our book!
