For many of us, these resolutions include getting include working on our relationships with others, reading more, spending more time with family and trying new things. When you’re making your list of resolutions for this year, we encourage you to consider dance classes a new thing for you to try and learn. There are many benefits you can gain from dance lessons so why not add learning how to dance to the top of your list?

What Can You Gain From Dance Lessons?

Quite a bit actually. Dance lessons are a great form of cardio, so you can improve your heart health. But that’s not all. Because dance is so dynamic, there are multiple areas of your life that could be improved simply by learning how to dance.

Improved Focus

As you learn to dance, you’ll notice that learning the dance moves while also counting is extremely difficult. You’ve seen ballroom dancing before, and they make it look so easy! Just know that it took years of dance lessons and training for those dancers to get there. But before they were pro’s they were beginners. As you learn to dance, you’ll notice how difficult it is to learn the dance lessons while trying to count as well. Enacting rhythm with physical dance moves helps exercise your brain, helping you learn more focus and strengthening your brain function.

Improved Balance

In our last blog, we talked about the obvious ways that dance lessons can improve your balance and flexibility. Whether you learn to Tango or learn how to Swing Dance, you’ll start to build strength in your core, causing better balance. Any dance you learn requires you to be flexible, and dance lessons will teach you how to gain that flexibility.

Personal Growth

Learning new things can be a be weird and uncomfortable, especially dancing. Dance lessons are a great way to step outside of your comfort zone. You’ll get to learn something new, while also in a great environment. Your personal dance lessons will allow you to learn how to dance one on one and will help you grow into a better dancer. Making ourselves uncomfortable is that best way to help ourselves grow.

Dancing is one of the best ways to express yourself and free your spirit. You give yourself the opportunity to let go and move to the music. Nothing is better for your soul than dropping everything to take time to dance everyday. You’ll get to free your spirit while learning a new skill. How’s that for a New Year’s resolution?
