Health Benefits

With the pressures of job and social obligations tugging us every which way, it’s more and more difficult to find time for exercise. It’s no secret that moderate exercise, and sensible eating habits, are the key to remaining trim and fit. However, the thought of spending thirty minutes on a treadmill, or jogging around the block five times is out of the question for many of us. Dancing provides excellent toning and cardiovascular exercise without really realizing it! Dancing works like a stress and tension reducer. For people on a hectic schedule (and who isn’t) it can become a passion that helps you improve your attitude and increase your confidence in both social and business situations.

That’s what makes dance the ideal exercise! After all, dancing is a mild aerobic workout, minus the boring part! When you take dance lessons, you make exercise a fun and enjoyable social event, every night of the week. Your dance ‘work out’ takes place with good music, a nice setting, and everyone’s in a good mood. It’s so fun you forget it’s even exercise!

‘Ballroom dance is a rigorous activity that uses the larger muscle groups, and is usually done over the course of an hour, or an entire evening,’ said George B. Theiss, President of Arthur Murray International. ‘It’s most frequently compared to ice dancing, and no one would question the athletic ability of an ice skater. Since we work without gliding across ice, it’s possible that a competitive ballroom dancer might even be in better shape than a figure skater.

Many people turn to ballroom dance when more traditional exercise programs fall by the wayside, either because of injuries or sheer boredom. Ballroom dance is a low impact activity. This makes it accessible to people of at any age or fitness level. With less emphasis on ‘going for the burn’ and more on having fun; the weight loss, improved circulation and aerobic conditioning emerges as a wonderful side effect.

Romance

Ballroom dancing is as romantic as it is enjoyable. For years the world’s greatest romantics have known the best way to a lady’s heart is to sweep her across the dance floor. Holding, touching and moving to the music is the most romantic skill any couple can add to their lives. Think of all the countless number of relationships that would have never started without the world’s best ice breaker — ‘may I have this dance’.

The romantic properties of dance are a secret that all good dancers enjoy. For men, being able to recognize which dance the band is playing and having the confidence in your ability to walk across the floor and ask a lady to dance is a social prerequisite. For ladies, they will always be in demand as a partner once they master the grace and poise, the styling and the all important following skills.

People will go to all extremes to make themselves attractive to the opposite sex. Hours are spent in the gym and millions are spent on cosmetics and stylish clothing just to gain a slight advantage in the dating game. Unfortunately for these people, they will always have to take a back seat to a good dancer. The best way to be noticed, in a favorable light, is on the dance floor. A couple of lessons at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio is all you will need to turn your dancing and romantic life around.

Plus, dancing can help keep two people together. After years of marriage, new excitement can be found together on the dance floor. It’s a ‘shot in the arm’. It encourages the spark of romance for stressed out, tension plagued couples. It’s great for keeping a marriage interesting, passionate, and long lasting. When surveyed, more women said they would prefer a night of dancing to flowers or chocolates for St. Valentine’s Day.
