Use Dance as a Form of Expression

benefits of ballroom dancingDo you need a new outlet that allows you to express yourself? Are you a bit shy when it comes to connecting with people you don’t know? If you are seeking a way to express your feelings, then dancing could very well be the thing for you!

Dancing, from Salsa to Swing to the ever-popular Country Two Step can help you develop and strengthen that right side of your brain that allows you to be creative. You will also find that releasing your feelings and emotions will not only boost your self-confidence, but it can also help to greatly improve your health.

With the wonderful use of self-expression through dancing, you can help reduce your stress levels tremendously. High levels of stress can cause increased heart rates and high blood pressure. Also, most of us tend to do this thing where we portray our emotions outward, and sometimes the people we love and surround ourselves with, get hurt. Its never intentional, but all that negative energy must have a release somewhere. So instead of taking-out your emotions in an destructive way, channel them inwards towards loving yourself and expressing them in a healthy, and more productive way that benefits you through dance! For example, a night out with friends Country dancing or Salsa dancing could be just what the doctor ordered. You will quickly see that dancing provides a certain sense of freedom that allows you to be more creative in your everyday life, and even on the dance floor.

In addition, social ballroom dancing is quite therapeutic as well. If you’re like most people and struggle with some sort of a “mental-fog” that clouds over your mood and energy levels, dancing will wake you right up and kick all your endorphins into high gear, making you feel alive and more energized throughout your afternoon or evening. You can even take what you learn about expressing yourself on the dance floor, and apply them to all sorts of real life situations and scenarios with people. Not being able to express yourself in a conversation with someone can be quite frustrating at times. So, as I said before, if you’re timid and even a bit shy, you can take private dance lessons and you’ll find out that you may just be able to better communicate how you are feeling in a more confident and sure way. Alleviating all those semi-stressful moments in life can do wonders for your body and mind, so start social dancing today!

Dance – A NEW New Year’s Resolution

According to several statistics, about 45% of Americans make a resolution to change something about their lives when the New Year rolls around. A slim percent of these Americans stick to the resolutions they make, like losing weight, falling in love, enjoying life to the fullest, learning something new, staying fit and quitting smoking. A lot of the time people who call it quits on keeping a resolution can blame a lack of motivation, attempting change alone, and poor time management for falling through. Whether you realized it or not, social ballroom dance lessons in the Country Two Step, Swing or Salsa dancing can actually support many of the most popular resolutions that we make. In fact, Dance FX Studios in Mesa, AZ has helped thousands of people discover the fun and satisfaction that dancing is. We can keep you motivated with our enthusiastic instructors and stimulating lesson plans and help you manage time with regular, constructive lessons.

#1 Lose Weight/Stay Fit

Dancing is an excellent form of exercise, as we have discussed in our blogs before. But what makes it such a great way to keep a resolution is that it continues to challenge you and keeps you motivated because it’s interesting and enjoyable. If you are not a gym rat or don’t find jogging on sidewalks to be your cup of tea, chances are dance lessons will stimulate your body and your mind, keeping you motivated. Not only will you exercise your muscles and coordination, you will also work your brain. Learning new steps and movements is a great way to get fit and challenge your mind!

#2 Enjoying Life

At Dance FX Studios, we can help you obtain skills that will apply to the “real world” and various social settings. See yourself dancing the Salsa at a wedding in 2014? Shaking your groove thing with the Country Two Step on nights out that you deserve? Dancing the Tango with a Latin lover in a land far away? You can make these dreams come true while enjoying yourself and learning the abilities you will use in these situations. It is a two birds, one stone situation that is sure to add some joy to your life!

#3 Learning New Skills

When you take dance lessons, you will learn so much more than just dance moves. We can teach you how to connect with your partner while dancing, be it a spouse or someone new at a bar or club. You can also learn how to lead or follow and how to navigate a crowded dance floor. The dance moves themselves will prove very rewarding when you get them down and become confident in yourself and your newfound abilities.

#4 Falling in Love

Okay, so we can’t promise that Mr. Right or Mrs. Wonderful will magically appear on the dance floor when you start taking dance lessons, but we can be sure that you will gain new social skills that can help you in your search! You will find yourself more confident and open when you take dance lessons, which will help you to connect and communicate when meeting new people. The ability to dance is something that will stay with you and you can take these new skills to a whole new spectrum of social places.
