Here at Arthur Murray Dance Center, we’ve always known that ballroom dancing is the thing to do. However, it’s only been in the last few years that the general public has seen the benefits and enjoyment that ballroom dance has to offer.

The last few years, the media has taken ballroom dancing and turned it into a national craze. Shows like “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” have proven that ballroom dancing is not an old and outdated form of dance. Ballroom dance actually affords individuals the opportunity to take classic dance styles and add unique and modern twists.

Thanks to popular dance show competitions, ballroom dancing has become a popular activity that more and more people are interested in. So, what’s the draw when it comes to ballroom dancing?

  • Ballroom dance has something for everyone. Whether you like your dances to be slow and romantic, or fast and energetic, there is a ballroom dance type to fit your style.
  • Ballroom dance can be taught to anyone. While we don’t always think of celebrities as the average person, shows like “Dancing with the Stars” have shown celebrities with little to no dance experience become masters of dance with the help of a trained professional.
  • Ballroom dance can get you into shape. We’ve seen it with our own eyes–celebrities and retired professional athletes have dropped their extra weight with the rigor of ballroom dancing.
  • Ballroom dance is new and exciting. Even though ballroom dance has been an art form for decades, its surge in popularity that began in the 21st century is enticing to a whole new generation of dancers.
