Social & Romantic Benefits of Dancing


Ballroom dancing is as romantic as it is enjoyable. For years the world's greatest romantics have known the best way to a lady's heart is to sweep her across the dance floor. Holding, touching and moving to the music is the most romantic skill any couple can add to their lives. Think of all the countless number of relationships that would have never started without the world's best ice breaker -- "may I have this dance".

The romantic properties of dance are a secret that all good dancers enjoy. For men, being able to recognize which dance the band is playing and having the confidence in your ability to walk across the floor and ask a lady to dance is a social prerequisite. For ladies, they will always be in demand as a partner once they master the grace and poise, the styling and the all-important following skills.

People will go to all extremes to make themselves attractive to the opposite sex. Hours are spent in the gym and millions are spent on cosmetics and stylish clothing just to gain a slight advantage in the dating game. Unfortunately for these people, they will always have to take a back seat to a good dancer. The best way to be noticed, in a favorable light, is on the dance floor. A couple of lessons at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio is all you will need to turn your dancing and romantic life around.

Much of the recent excitement surrounding the romance of ballroom dancing started when Michael Douglas told Annette Benning that he danced so well because of six lessons at Arthur Murray in "An American President." Ballroom dance has captured Hollywood's imagination yet again in "Beautician and the Beast" with Fran Drescher. These dance scenes do the same thing for actors and their characters that dance does in real life. It provides a chance for you to express your emotions towards your partner, propelling your relationship into a more sensual mood, without moving into an R rating!

Plus, dancing can help keep two people together. After years of marriage, new excitement can be found together on the dance floor. It's a "shot in the arm". It encourages the spark of romance for stressed out, tension-plagued people. It's great for keeping a marriage interesting and long lasting. When surveyed, more women said they would prefer a night of dancing to flowers or chocolates for St. Valentine's Day.
