Why Dance? Dancing brings people together. It lifts your spirits. It keeps you healthy. It has many benefits.


Benefit #1: Dancing Makes You Feel Good - When you hear good music, it moves you. Doesn't it? When you hear a song with a good beat, you want to move. You want to dance. It's natural. Whether you're dancing when nobody's watching or you're dancing in public, it revitalizes you. On a recent TV show, Ellen Degeneres commented that you cannot dance and be in a bad mood at the same time. Dancing just lifts your spirits. It energizes your life and helps put a smile on your face.

Benefit #2: Dancing Relieves Stress - Many of our students say that dancing is a great stress reliever. When they start dancing, all their work day worries just fade away. They are now enjoying the music and the friendly interactions among fellow students. This, combined with moving your body, helps the body and the mind relax.

Benefit #3: Dancing Keeps You Fit - The Mayo Clinic recently published that dancing can burn as many calories as walking or swimming or riding a bicycle. They said that you can expect to burn 200 to 400 calories during a half-hour of dancing. Besides burning calories, dancing regularly can help improve your cardiovascular health. It can help lower your heart rate, lower blood pressure and improve your cholesterol profile. Dancing can also help strengthen your weight-bearing bones. And because dancing is social, you're more likely to keep it up. There's more variety to keep you interested compared to the many other solitary health-related activities promoted.

Benefit #4: Dancing Brings People Together - Many people start taking dance lessons to prepare for a special event, a wedding, a vacation or because they received a gift certificate. During the course of their lessons, they meet new people, develop new relationships and have such a good time that they decide to make dancing a regular part of their lives.

For couples, dance lesson are a much needed time out from the stress of everyday life; it provides time to focus only on each other. Learn to dance is an opportunity to improve communication with your partner, express yourself physically and creatively, while working together toward a common goal. Men and women who know how to dance are always in demand at parties, galas and benefits. The return to partner dancing can be seen on dance floors at night clubs and ballrooms across the world. People are getting to know each other, moving together, step by step.

Learning to dance helps put romance and fun into your life. It's more than roses and chocolates... You meet interesting, friendly people at the studio or the clubs who you then go out with, go places, do things and enjoy what dancing brings. Dancing has become a part of our social life.
More and More People Are Ballroom Dancing. Ballroom dancing is not what it used to be. People around the world have fallen in love with dancing because it is a great recreational activity that's fun, romantic, very social and even good for their health!

Today, young singles and couples are dancing for fun socially and competitively. Ballroom dance clubs or teams are now very popular in colleges. Intercollegiate ballroom dance (dancesport) competitions are run all over the country. Harvard, Tufts, MIT, Northeastern and Michigan State all have very good dance teams.

Mid-life adults look for an aerobic, creative and competitive activity that's injury free. Thirty-somethings enjoy a night out from the demands of work and family. Baby boomers, a generation who never caught "Swing Fever" and swore on stacks of Grateful Dead records that they'd never learn to ballroom dance, now find themselves part of a very visible return to partner dancing.

People of all ages are having a great time discovering Foxtrot, Tango or Salsa at holiday parties and galas. Many young executives are attending formal galas, fundraisers and black tie dinners. They are as well prepared to impress and succeed on the dance floor as they are in the boardroom. They look confident. They look like they know what they're doing and feel comfortable on the dance floor.

Take the First Step to Fun, Fitness and New Friends!

Our Dance Studio welcomes the opportunity to teach you to dance.Sincerely, Louis & Tracy Soma
