Our repeated screen glances, mouse clicks and phone swipes do little to improve our posture and flexibility. Electronic devices seemingly transform into electronic anchors, rendering us physically inflexible. Our heads droop and tense shoulders shrug and slouch. The time we spend with our electronic devices, leaves us tired and sluggish! Humans are built to move - so why aren't we moving?
Even more, our personal and work relationships require flexibility, compromise, collaboration and engagement. The people we interact with every day are movers and doers. We work, shop, eat and play. People are on the go but, how often are we going anywhere or doing anything, together? Look around long enough and you'll notice how good we've gotten at becoming legions of "one".
Ballroom dancing provides unity through music and movement. Participation in a dance class allows partners to move together through space and time. Much like a sports team on the field, ballroom dance classes move together purposefully on the dance floor. United by our efforts to have fun (and exercise), ballroom dancers enrich their lives by building communities that dance! Wouldn't you like to build a ballroom dance community in your city?
- In a ballroom dance class - everyone is motivated by the opportunity for self-improvement. Students improve posture, balance - and physical communication skills.
- In a ballroom dance class - we improve partnership skills. Everyone needs opportunities to stand across from another human being - and know that they're on the same team. Ballroom dancing provides the structure and the framework necessary for building partnership skills - and have fun while doing it.
People in recovery, need to find new ways to socialize and connect with others in safe and supportive environments. A ballroom dance class may be just the answer! If you or someone you know might benefit from trying a ballroom dance class - please let us know. We're here to help improve lives and build communities through ballroom dance!
