Latin & Ballroom Dancing Lessons for Improved Mental Health

May 5, 2020

There are many obvious benefits to taking on Latin or Ballroom dancing lessons such as increased physical activity, weight loss due to the exercise, improving the strength of your muscles and developing better coordination (allowing you to respond more quickly to unexpected physical situations).

There are also hidden advantages most people would never think of, such as improving your mental health through ballroom dance lessons. How’s that?

Social Interactions

Ballroom dance lessons get you involved in a community and people who are involved in social activity, tend to be happier and live longer. Our adult dance classes will have you meeting new people of all ages, talking about common interests, and absorbing new knowledge as a team. You’ll also be physically interacting with people during dances, which helps our emotional state as social creatures.

Memorizing Steps

While ballroom dancing can be free-form, it’s often about learning steps and new patterns. When you memorize your steps, you’re exercising your brain. And when your start doing the steps without having to think about them, your brain and your body are speaking to each other in ways that you might never have imagined.

Ballroom Dancing Lessons Build Confidence

Ballroom dance lessons can be a wonderful confidence booster. Finally perfecting the routine you’ve worked so hard on, coupled with the exercise, can release a huge amount of endorphins into your system. You’ll feel great and your confidence will be boosted!

Ballroom dancing seems so physical, but there’s an equally wonderful mental aspect to it as well. If you’re ready to get started, contact Dance Fire Studio today!

“My husband and I have been learning ballroom dancing for 8 years. Viara is a wonderful teacher – patient, graceful and talented. She is an amazing choreographer, the one that can customize the dance routine for every student’s abilities, the one that thinks about every detail of the costume and steps, the one that makes sure that regardless of your level, you look your best on the dance floor. This studio creates the sense of a community, we’ve become friends with other students, celebrate so many holidays together, and, of course, dance and have fun together!”
