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. Losing weight, enjoying life, learning new skills, staying fit and maybe even falling in love can be done when you join us! With over 12 years of experience in the dance business, we can help you make that resolution obtainable and help you stay on track this year!


#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. Guys, girls love it when they meet a man who knows how to dance and can show them a good time. It’s not girly, we promise! Ladies, who hasn’t dreamt of literally being swept off their feet to a romantic tune?

With so many great holiday specials right now, including a 5-hour private lesson program for just $199 special and our unique $40 Introductory Offer, there’s no reason a resolution can’t come true and stay true all through 2014! Your dreams for 2014 can be obtainable with our help at Dance FX Studios. A few ways that are known to help in keeping resolutions are to be specific and to be held accountable. We lay out everything for you and regular lessons with our great instructors will help you stick to your plan!

Argentine Tango Milongas are Back!

Tango Milongas are back at Dance FX Studios in Mesa, Arizona. Enjoy great music, dancing from those of all levels from beginners to advanced and snacks and refreshments in one of the best tango venues in the Phoenix metro valley on the 3rd week of each month.

What is a “Milonga”? An Argentine Tango Milonga is a party mainly for tango dancers. While the majority of music played at the Dance FX Studios’ Milonga will be tango, we also play Salsa and Swing dance music during our “tandas”, or breaks between sets of artists.

The cover charge for Dance FX Studios’ Tango Milonga is $10 per person or just $5 for students ages 16+ with current student identification.

Would you like to learn to dance Tango? With our first Milonga just around the corner on the 19th of January 2013, it’s not too late to get in a few private tango lessons and participate in the night. The Argentine Tango is a beautiful, romantic and passionate dance, one that is worth knowing.

In private Argentine Tango dance lessons at Dance FX Studios, you will begin with the basics needed to lead and follow this intricate and exciting dance. Then, we will help you to explore key elements and techniques that will make you a comfortable and competent social tango dancer in no time.

Now is the time to get started with Tango dance lessons as Dance FX Studios’ holiday offers will end on December 24th, 2012. Take advantage of our introductory offer for just $40 or one of our dance packages that include private dance lessons, nights out dancing, group dance classes and in-house dance party tickets.
