The benefits of ballroom dance extend to both male and female, but let’s take a look at some benefits for ballroom dancing for men in particular.
1- It doesn’t feel like exercise
Have you ever thought “not the treadmill again”, or “I’m sick of the elliptical”? Dancing is a form of exercise that is as calorie burning as a jog, with the added benefit of improving balance and coordination. Guys, did you ruin your knees playing sports? Not to worry, your instructor can help you focus on low impact dance styles.
2. Other health benefits
Dancing will improve your posture, improve you mood, help with stress reduction, and even protect against certain mental diseases. To see the more of the social and health benefits visit Benefits of Dance.
3. It shows confidence
Whether at a wedding or some other special gathering, it’s easy to avoid the dance floor and play the wallflower. Confident men don’t let what other people think rule their decisions, and nothing screams confidence like a man whose unafraid to get out there and show his moves! Ballroom dance lessons will also teach you better posture, which visually communicates confidence in settings outside the dance studio.
4. It teaches leadership
In ballroom dancing there is a male and female pairing. As a man, you will be in control and it will be your responsibility to decide when to turn your woman, blend your steps, and to communicate these in a clear and pleasant way through non-verbal clues. It’s also your responsibility to keep your woman safe from running into other couples on the floor.
5. Increase your intrigue
People like interesting people. Developing a new sophisticated hobby gives others a glimpse into the burgeoning renaissance man you are becoming! You’ll have an interesting new hobby to talk about, and one that your friends and family will be excited to see showcased at the next wedding or special gathering.
