Below is a list of benefits that students frequently gain as they become stronger, more flexible, and have better balance.  Some go on to become better dancers and others follow a different journey to experience what they are passionate about.  Choose what benefits appeal to you.  Let me know what is important to you so that, as I give you personal training in dance or core or flexibility exercise, I will know what you desire as your end result.

If you choose to become a Latin or Ballroom Dancer, you will be introduced to a very graceful form of artful movements.  The man leads and the woman follows.  Any mistakes on the floor are respectfully and playfully covered with a gentle smile.  The man takes responsibility that the woman did not understand his lead if there is any confusion, but the dance goes on just as life does.  There are no mistakes that stop the flow around the room and no one knows except the partners what is happening between them.  It is an emotionally safe place to be. 

 

Because we can think of nothing other than dancing, there is a bit of heaven that we seem to experience as we dance to the rhythm of the music.  Dressing up is also a lost art and is rekindled at the dances.  Many dances have themes, but each invitation gives instruction as to how to dress.      

Also, science has proven that dancing makes you happy. For more on that, see: https://psychology-spot.com/dancing-makes-me-happy/.
