If Paula Deen can do it - so can you! Why not ballroom dancing?

"Dancing With The Stars" has made ballroom dancing a household word. Season 21 is upon us, and TV viewers across America are once again becoming increasingly intrigued and curious about dancing. Programs like DWTS and "So You Think You Can Dance" have stimulated interest in the physical and social benefits of this art form.

 Ballroom dancing isn't just for celebrities and professionals. Anyone can enjoy and benefit from learning to ballroom dance.

Collectively we have witnessed the participant's bodies become toned and lean. Sitting in our living rooms we watched shy caterpillars dance out of their cocoons and emerge as bejeweled butterflies. Be honest, haven't you, at least once, said to yourself, "I wish I could do that"?

You can. Dancing is a very affordable, extremely healthy, and a surprisingly enjoyable activity. Come alone, bring a friend or come and make a new friend. Dancing has no age restriction attached. Tweens and oldsters alike reap the physical and mental benefits of rhythmic movement.

Science tells us that learning a new dance boosts self-esteem and improves cognitive ability. Think of it as an exercise for your brain. Dancing increases physical strength, endurance and flexibility. The more you move, the better you will be able to move. It really is as simple as that.

This season, instead of just watching the Dancing With The Stars cast tackle weekly challenges, challenge yourself. Join a dance class, or sign up for a few private lessons. You choose the style that suits you best. Do you love to watch the couples Waltz gracefully across the floor? Do you sway to the tempo of the Salsa? Are you secretly thinking to yourself, "I bet I could do that"?

If you even think you can dance, contact us. We know you can, and, by the time they hand out that mirror ball trophy we'll make you a star.
