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.
For many dancers, there comes a time when classes, lessons and the weekly social dance becomes the gateway to quenching a deep creative thirst. Choosing to participate in a competitive or performance experience, whether as a one time pursuit or a lifetime endeavor, aids in sharpening those movement skills all around. In the spotlight, missteps can be highlighted, but so too can your shine and showmanship.

Maybe you want a new way to meet people, maybe you want to learn a new skill, or maybe you just want to get a little more movement into your life.

You've probably heard the well-known idiom that suggests a poor dancer has "two left feet". It's become a staple of the English language, conjuring pictures of awkward, graceless, and otherwise inelegant dancers in an instant. More often than not it's used in a self-deprecating manner or by those too shy or scared to put themselves out there on the dance floor. Despite the phrase's prevalence, we at Quick Quick Slow believe that anybody can be taught to dance. Certainly there are varying levels of expertise and not everyone is gifted with perfect rhythm, but at its core dance is about having fun and simply knowing your right foot from your left.
Ballroom and Latin dancing are not only fun pastimes but also a wonderful way to get and stay in shape. Most dance studios, including Quick Quick Slow Ballroom Dance Studio offer both private ballroom and group lessons. Whereas each has its benefits, here are the top three reasons why private dance lessons are particularly valuable.
