If you're looking for something to do together to really connect with your partner in a new way or add some spice back into your date nights, ballroom dancing may just be for you. With all the restrictions nowadays dancing can be one of the safest activities that you can do together. The only person that you will touch will be your partner. The dance teacher can show all the moves from a safe distance. Don't forget safety is our top priority.
Investing as little as one or two hours a week to take a time-out to just dance together can do wonders for your relationship. Personally, we know this to be true. Professionally, we have taught hundreds of couples and that is what we have noticed to be the most beneficial aspects of ballroom dancing for couples:
Sharing a common activity
Relationship experts preach that couples who find common interests and hobbies to enjoy together are happier in their marriages overall. Life is busy. Period. Most couples are going in different directions all day and the nights are short. Taking ballroom dance lessons gives you a common goal and skill to master together. It lets you learn and grow in something new as a couple, and tells your partner that romance and fun are still important to you.
2. Get healthy together
Physically, ballroom dancing is a fantastic low-impact workout. It is great for your heart and lungs, improves your balance, strength, and flexibility, increases your energy and endurance, and can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Mentally, it's one of the best activities you can do to keep your mind sharp. Dancing frequently (4 times per week) has been proven to create new neural pathways and reduce the risk of dementia by 76%! Also, the couples who workout together have a lower rate of dropping out!
A successful ballroom dance partnership requires mutual reliance and trust and can strengthen your teamwork and appreciation for each other off the dance floor, too. There's a give and take. There's a lead and follow. There's an agreement that you do your part and I'll do mine. For a dance to look and feel beautiful – or hot – you have to work together and pull your own weight. You have to appreciate what your partner is doing for you, and reciprocate.
4. Connect and be in the moment
It has been said that dancing is like taking a mini-vacation. In ballroom dancing, your brain has so many different facets to focus on, your responsibilities off the dance floor drift away as your bodies connect and you move in unison. When is the last time you and your spouse held each other in your arms for an hour – no distractions, no to-do list running through your heads, no phones, no kids? Think about it. You deserve this!
5. Have more fun
When you know how to ballroom dance, it's a whole lot of fun! As you learn and become a better dancer, your confidence grows, the way you carry yourself changes, and your self-esteem flourishes – and when you learn with your partner, so does your relationship grows.
Right now the only place you can dance is a dance studio. Come and learn to dance in a safe environment where you will touch only your partner. All the instructions from your teacher will be only based on the example and no touching. Let's dance and have fun! Surprise your better half with a special present!
