How Dancing Can Improve Your Game

ballroom dancing builds confidenceWe are in the midst of football season (Go Arizona Cardinals!) and it couldn’t be more exciting! The athletes we love and admire have been training for months just to make us proud…and to win, of course. Our favorites have been getting fit, strong and prepared for anything that comes their way on the field.

While you may know that their training includes passes, plays and runs, did you also know that part of football player’s game day preparation includes dance? Yes, popular dance moves like the Grapevine (think “side, forward, side, back”, and repeat in a straight line) stemmed from traditional ballroom dances like the Waltz and Foxtrot. The Grapevine has in fact helped many a football player stay light on his toes and ready for anything.

And what about balance and coordination? Those are two key things that every football player needs. Ballroom dance lessons are a tool that will enhance those qualities in an athlete too. Now that’s pretty cool! And, you probably haven’t considered it, but ballroom dancing for football players is also amazing for posture, core strength and improved memory, all important traits for athletes of any sport.

Social Ballroom dancing, like the Country Two Step, Swing and Salsa dancing, can help off of the field as well. First, a guy that can dance is a hot commodity! Everyone knows that we ladies love a guy that can dance well. This skill is not something that you are born with, however. It’s an earned talent that any man would love to have, but doesn’t always take the time to learn. Making the investment in Private Social Ballroom Dance Lessons, guys, will pay off exponentially. I promise.

And, once you know how to Latin dance or Country dance, your confidence will skyrocket! It may be tricky, but you must be prepared for the long line of ladies that will be waiting to be swept off of their feet by you. 🙂 Social partner dances like Swing and Two Step are cool, fun, and quite romantic, and knowing how to do them well will make you a cut above the rest.

Whether you’re on the field or not, men that can dance are winners! Gain self-assurance, poise, and a sharpened sets of tools, then put your dance moves to work for you. What do you have to lose? Nowadays, a man that can dance is hot, so you may as well be one of them! You can become a great social dancer by taking your first step into our Arizona dance studio. Your fun awaits!
