Spring is in the air! You can feel it in the warmer weather and luxuriously longer days. Newly budding trees sway gently in the breeze and flowers suddenly burst forth with their lovely fragrances. This glorious season of rebirth makes everyone feel more alive and thoughts turn to fresh starts and new beginnings – a time to venture off the sofa and out of the house to enjoy a more active lifestyle. And if you’re looking for something new and different to do that will offer some real fun and excitement as well as appeal to your sense of romance and adventure, ballroom dancing is the perfect pastime.
Dancing is a great way to stay fit
Here’s a cool fact: when you’re dancing, you’re exercising without realizing it. While you’re out on the floor showing off all those dance moves you’re actually getting in shape. Dancing elevates your heart rate, builds strength, burns calories and uses all your key muscle groups. And one of the most appealing aspects of dancing is that it will never feel like work. It’s one of the most enjoyable ways to stay physically active.
Dancing enhances your social life
From spring through the end of the year, events, parties and weddings fill the calendar. Being able to dance will increase your enjoyment of any social events you attend when you can get out off the dance floor and move to the music. There are many other social environments, like clubs, meet ups and parties – centered around the pleasures of ballroom dancing where you’ll have a chance to meet new people who share your passion for moving on the dance floor.
Dancing is a joyful experience
In the spring, more than any other time, we naturally feel hopeful and lighthearted and we look for ways to express that happiness. Listening to music and moving to it, are very natural human responses when words just aren’t enough. We dance because we feel good and feel good when we dance. It’s a no-brainer. So why not learn a few steps and take those good feelings to the next level with dancing? You’ll be whirling around the ballroom floor in no time!
