Face it fellows, some of us guys are more ‘challenged’ by the art of dance than others. Many of us like to think we’re that cool, sexy guy with jaw dropping flair on the dance floor, but deep down we (and our dance partners) know our moves are more like something from the Monster Mash. Even our shadow dreads dancing with us! So where can we learn to polish our lackluster efforts in a comfortable and non-judgmental atmosphere?
Dance studios that offer private ballroom dance lessons are your best bet! Learning to improve your body stature while applying a healthy dose of ‘attitude’ to match is a major element between having your dance moves appear well executed and natural, or forced and clunky. Instructors help you understand exactly where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and teach you how to make mental adjustments that instruct your body to move more fluidly. For instance, what you may perceive as a 'smooth move' may actually look awkward and amateurish to those looking on, while those moves that make you feel awkward or silly may actually give you more symmetry and appear more flowing and rhythmic.
As you progress, you’ll probably also notice a great improvement in your flexibility, muscle tone, and endurance. These healthy attributes are not only a positive additional result of your commitment to the lessons, but a smart investment in your health. The more fit you become, the easier it is for your body to adapt to new dance moves as well as other physical movements in your daily life. You’ll experience a whole new confidence level in your dancing ability (and agility), which will show as you advance to the next levels. And chances are you WILL advance because once you master a new step, you'll feel motivated to learn more!
So now you're convinced, but what steps does a guy take to get started? Well, the first step is to simply contact us for information on when/where to sign up for your own private lessons. Once you’ve taken that step, you’re well on your way to being that guy all the ladies (and even your shadow) will want to dance with!
