So she didn’t turn out to be as cute as you had hoped she’d be, and he isn’t nearly as funny as he was on the phone. Now you’re sitting across the table from each other, desperately trying to figure out how to save this night from yet another blind date disaster. The movies may work, since you won’t have to spend too much time interacting. But if you want to truly see what your date is made of, boy do we have a fun and creative way to spend the next few hours! Our plan for turning a date night “never again” around? Take her out dancing! Yes, dancing is a great ice breaker, stress reliever and an easy way to see if there is some underlying chemistry between the two of you after all. Plus, hitting a Country bar with live music, or a trendy Latin dance club is so much more interesting than chatting over a cup of joe.
Of course, if you do not yet know how to Country Two Step or Salsa dance, this idea of ours can end up in one of two ways. Either she’ll think you’re adorable for trying to explore something new, unique and exciting, or you’ll completely embarrass yourself and never step on to another dance floor again. Let’s avoid the latter with an easy solution: dance lessons from a local studio. How better to prepare yourself than by getting some great tips on how to sweep her off of her feet?! With Private Dance Lessons, you will also learn to lead like a champ, making you a hot commodity for future love interests if this one doesn’t pan out.
Now that you know how you’re going to WOW her, where do you begin when it comes to this dancing thing? Let us show you the steps (no pun intended) to becoming a great social dancer.
1. Work Backwards: Before you begin taking lessons, start thinking about where you would like to go dancing. If Country music is your thing, check out a few local venues that play Country dance music and see if you can envision yourself hanging out in that place with a date. Get acclimated by visiting the bar several times and watching the other dancers.
If Latin dancing is more up your alley, frequent a Latin dance club and watch the dancers for a bit. See what is popular right now and take it all in before you get a chance to step on that floor one day. Preparing ahead of time will give you that comfortability factor as well as give you a sense of familiarity; two key things that will give you peace of mind when you are taking out someone new for the first time.
2. Go With Private Dance Lessons: There are no shortcuts to becoming a confident social dancer. You can take months and months of group dance classes and learn just as much, if not more, in several Private Dance Lessons. Make the investment in yourself and get on the fast track to feeling great on any social dance floor with one-on-one instruction.
3. Come Prepared: So you may not be that guy or gal in the scenario that we opened with, but why wait until you’re in that situation yourself before doing something about it? Begin taking dance lessons now and see what a confidence booster it actually is to have such a skill under your belt. She will probably fall on the floor just by you asking her to go dancing! Then, when you take her out and show her that you’ve actually spent time really learning how to Two Step or Swing dance, trust us, she’ll see you in a whole new light.
Knowing how to social dance is something that you will have forever and use over and over again throughout your life. From your wedding, to nights on the town with friends to holiday parties and more, you will be ready to conquer any dance floor with ease. What a cool thing to be able to say that you can do!
