Ask any of the couples at Lake Shore Dance Academy, the award-winning Wilmette ballroom dance academy, and they’ll tell you that ballroom dancing lessons have changed their relationship for the better. They can tell you plenty of how much fun dancing together is, but also how important it is. Don’t just talk to our couples though to see for yourself the benefits of dancing as a couple. Here are three reasons why you should take dance lessons with your partner.
- Dancing is a workout! It’s common practice to have a workout partner, but it’s not fun if you are on the treadmill and your partner is on the bike a few rows over in the gym. That’s not exercising together, that’s being in the gym at the same time With dancing, you are workout out together, helping each other, and having fun. A study shows that an hour of heart-pumping, cardio-building dance like Salsa can burn almost 400 calories!
- When you dance, you are whisked away (no pun intended!) from all the surroundings of “real life.” When you engage with your partner in a ballroom dance setting that surrounds you with music, closeness, touch, and movement, it’s easy to let go of your worries and lose yourself in time spent together. Our number 2 reason for taking ballroom dancing as a couple is to rekindle the passion between you.
- Many social engagements involve dancing. From parties to weddings to dates, dancing could start anywhere. If you and your partner have been taking ballroom dance lessons, you are prepared for any dance scenario that should arise. Whether it be a slow waltz or a fiery tango, you can tackle it, and what’s more, you and your partner will be the star of the show!
