We know that starting something new can be really scary - especially if it's something completely different from anything else you've done before, and we know that Ballroom Dancing is one of those really scary things for a lot of people!

So if you're on the edge, not sure if you want to start ballroom dancing, here are some reasons why you should:

1. Ballroom Dancing is Great for Your Health

Depending on the type of ballroom dance you do, the pace of the music, and the intensity of your dancing, you will burn anywhere from 300 to 700 calories in one hour! That's just about the number of calories a person will burn at the gym in one hour - but you'll have a lot more fun doing it.

It also is a great combination of muscle building, muscle toning, and cardio all rolled into one fun workout.

2. It's Social

Unlike other kinds of dance, ballroom dancing requires a partner - the only way to really progress is with other people! Attend a social dance and practice talking - and dancing - with people from all walks of life and backgrounds. Start training with a partner and get to know them. Ballroom dancing is deeply social, and a wonderful way to hone your social skills and meet new people.

3. It Unleashes Your Creativity

It's no secret that dancing is a creative activity. But did you know that trying new things, requiring your brain to work in new and different ways, helps to foster creativity? So Ballroom Dancing packs a double whammy in the creative thinking department.

You may be thinking, "But... I'm not a creative person. At all."

Here's the great thing: Ballroom dancing is the perfect mix of rules and creativity - and you start with the rules part! The rules serve as a foundation, and you learn to be creative inside of that framework. It is the perfect way to get started on creative thinking for all of you analytical folks out there.
