Whether you’re a young professional looking for a new way to make friends or you and your spouse are looking to spice things up now that the kids have moved out, adult social dance is a great way to build relationships and learn new skills along the way. For many of us however, the thought of showing off our two left feet can be petrifying as dancing may be moving into new territory. There’s no need to fear though, and these three reminders can help keep the stress down and the fun up.
You Don’t Have To Be Dancing With The Stars
Remember, this is a social dance not a professional competition. Sure, there may be that one couple that has been doing this for years but the majority of social dancers are just looking to meet new people and to have a little fun.
The Instructors Are Your Friends
Whether you’re attending a social dance alone or with a partner, the instructors are there to help you out and to make sure you’re having a good time. Don’t be afraid of asking them for tips or even dancing with them for a couple of songs, you’ll be surprised how much you can learn from them in five minutes and then you can show off your new moves with your next partner.
Nobody who’s attending a social dance is there to criticize the other dancers, in fact, many of them may be just as worried about their performance as you are about yours. Social dancing is about having a good time and not being afraid to laugh at your mistakes. So if you mess up just stop, find that beat, and keep dancing.
