It is a common experience for dance teachers to meet adults who express their regret for never having learned how to dance and truly believe that they would never be able to learn. This is heartbreaking, because anyone, no matter the age or ability, can dance! At Quick Quick Slow Ballroom Dance Studio, we want those adults who have always desired but never thought they were able to dance to feel welcome in our adult dance lessons.
As an adult, it can be easy to limit yourself to what you think you can and can't do. It can be easy to forget childhood dreams like learning how to dance. However, if you are brave enough to take the risk and return to the studio, or even to show up on the dance floor for the first time, dancing will remind you that anything is possible. We are taken back to the playfulness of youth, because dancing allows us to be silly and to connect with each other in a way that normally does not exist in our day-to-day adult lives.
Teaching adults who are either just starting their dance journey or are returning after a long hiatus is one of the most rewarding experiences as a dance teacher. To see the people who have said for years they can't dance break through their own boundaries and move their bodies in new ways is incredibly profound. Discovering a new connection with your body through dance is an empowering experience, and can change your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
It is rare to find a studio offering adult dance lessons, especially ones that are gently welcoming to any age, level, or ability. Quick Quick Slow Ballroom Dance Studio strives to provide this open atmosphere.
