Benifits of Dance
Dancing isn't just about the steps and music; it's a perfect combination of physical activity, social interaction, and mental stimulation. Dancing enhances your life in so many ways:
When you dance, your cardiovascular system improves, your muscle tone increases and you burn calories. This low-impact aerobic activity also increases flexibility, strength, and balance. Olympic athletes often dance as part of their training to sharpen their control, agility, and speed. Dancing is great exercise in a pleasant, fun atmosphere.
Dancers possess an aura of self-confidence and an ability to enjoy themselves more in social situations. When you learn how to dance, your entire mental outlook will take on a fresh sense of creativity, motivation and energy. This new self-confidence in your dancing abilities will transfer to other aspects of your life as well.
Dance provides an emotional outlet so that you can reflect your feelings through your body movements with passion and flair. Dancing will bring out, improve on, and strengthen your ability to permanently use these expressive qualities even when not dancing.
Dancing lessons are an easy, low-pressure way to meet people. At LDS we provide monthly social dance parties where you can practise in a familiar enviroment, nights out on the town, national and international competitions and festivals/congresses, as well as fun trips to different locations. Our classes are also the perfect place to rediscover romance! We have had quite a few people meeting their future partners on the dance floor - dance your way to love!
In today's fast-paced world, we sometimes forget to take a moment for ourselves. Dancing provides a temporary escape from your normal daily activities, a chance to relax, relieve stress and concentrate on yourself.
Way of Life
For many people, dancing has not only become a hobby, or a past time. In many cases it has become a new lifestyle! The more you dance, the more you get to know the people who are in it and the more you will get to know the world of dance. Eventually this could transform the way you live your life forever.
Dancing is a great way to add excitement to your life! Although learning to dance takes concentration and dedication, you will be constantly surrounded by artistic, creative and cheerful people who make learning a pleasurable and rewarding experience. So join us and have some fun!
