There's more to ballroom dancing than the beautiful gowns and competitions you see on TV. Whether you're tempted by Tango or looking for a social Samba, dance has plenty of benefits to go around.
“Ballroom dancing” as a term hails from the Latin word “ballare” which, coincidentally, means “to dance.” Thus, a ballroom is a room in which to dance. Makes sense, right? Centuries ago, ballroom dancing was primarily for the privileged and well-to-do, while the commoners had to make do with folk dancing; however, these boundaries have since disappeared, leaving ballroom dancing a fun hobby for everyone.
