Rewind five to seven years ago…did you ever think that Country dancing would be this huge-especially among the younger generations!? For us dancers, it’s a wonderfully amazing thing! Partner dancing is here to stay, and is not only acceptable for 20-something’s in Arizona, but it’s quite trendy, in fact! At our dance studio in Mesa, Arizona, we receive 25-30 requests weekly…just for Country Two Step and Country Swing dance lessons! That’s pretty incredible, especially considering that other popular dance styles like the Salsa and Bachata are also frontrunners amongst the youth here in the southwest.
Why are so many young people interested in Country dance lessons? That’s a great question! It’s not like Country Western dancing is new in Arizona. On the contrary. In fact, Line Dancing, Two Step dancing and the Western Swing have been around for decades. There are a few reasons why Country dancing has really become popular these days. Let’s take a look…
- Country Music is Now Mainstream: With (very attractive and ) cool celebrity Country artists like Blake Shelton and Carrie Underwood, Country music has gone from twang to a hot thang! Who wouldn’t want to throw on their daisy dukes or Wranglers and show off to these fun and playful hits?
- Girls love to dance! And, since Country music is in…well, you connect the dots. At our dance studio in Mesa, Arizona, we have a ton of single male students who come in specifically to gain confidence on the dance floor…so they can really sweep the ladies off of their feet! Dancing is a fun, healthy and romantic way to a woman’s heart, so why not make a great investment in a cool hobby that you can use for years to come with someone special.
- We also get a lot of requests from single guys who want to look better than their friends Country dancing. It’s become a sort of competitive skill that seems to be a sign of who’s cool and who’s not these days. The best guys on any dance floor, Country dancing or not, are those who are mindful of and take care of their dance partners. Guys, please do not rip our arms out on the dance floor. It’s not nearly as fun as it looks, and it is actually harmful us us as followers.
- For couples, Country dance lessons are a super-fun way to re-connect after a long day of work, and to escape from it all. If you are exploring romantic hobbies, this is the one!
Take time for yourself, or for you and your significant other, to dance. Dancing is a popular, fun, flirty, and timeless gift that you can give to yourself and your relationship. So what are you waiting for, give us a call to begin Country dance lessons today!
