Partner Dancing ...Lessons for a lifetime ....

Foremost  in taking  dancing lessons would be the realization that we are never done with learning to dance ever ... its ever evolving and continues to educate us for a lifetime.

Greater the involvement and dedication and commitment to practice  dancing , greater the rewards to the dancer  be it in terms of opportunities,happiness health , Dancing improves muscular coordination and endurance as well as tones our bodies whatever the age.

Dancing is a great activity to all around fitness for mind body and spirit.Thus  most dancers are generally very social and confident people .Social  Dancing  can keeps boredom out of our life provided we are not  overdoing it .. Dancing lessons are great ways in learning to put our trust , compassion , empathy and  understanding in relationships ... in a way what we learn from it can be  put to test on the dance floor.

Though we  may learn countless steps ... while dancing socially only those steps come to use which are already entrenched in our muscle memory ... so its important to practice with dedication and most importantly  when we dance ... it is imperative to remember  to develop the quality of  listening  with awareness to your partners  signals as after all dancing with a partner is a conversation , a  non verbal dialogue and not a monologue.

Dancing Latin and Ballroom dances develops one's  attention span, alertness, reflexes, teamwork, flexibility, adaptability, maneuverability and flow ,and many other wonderful traits worth developing which will hold one good for  a lifetime .

What is nice to remember though is to simply  be happy and joyous at every opportunity to dance  !

Dance often ..as....
"To dance is to know the bliss in humility and the strength in the flexibility
 To dance is to know the joy in the moves, and the power in the adaptability...."
