Dance lessons provide a great alternative to going to the gym. You can burn just as many calories—if not more—from our dance lessons than you would at your typical gym workout. Not to mention dance lessons give you awesome and unique opportunities to meet new people, build social connections and have a lot of fun in the process!  Here are four more reasons to trade your gym attire in for clothes you can dance in.

It’s Something Different

Going to the dance studio instead of the gym for a change can give you the boost you need to see results and give you new challenges—physically, and mentally. Dancing really opens up a new world for your health and your life!

Dance Lessons Are More Fun

Swing dancing with a partner is a lot more fun than repeatedly pedaling a bicycle over and over again. Plus, there are tons of different dance styles to choose from so you’ll never get bored. You can learn to Salsa, Foxtrot, Cha-cha, Waltz, and more! There are so many possibilities and opportunities for a fun workout with our dance lessons.

Build Connections

There’s just something about dance that helps you build quick connections. Most people in dance lessons have gone out of their comfort zone, so we are always supportive of new people. We all remember being the new guy or gal and our dancers are welcoming and encouraging of all skill levels. We want you to feel like home when you walk through our doors.

Get A Whole Body Workout

Dance lessons funIn dancing, you don’t have to worry about doing legs one day or cardio the next. Dancing is a whole-body workout that burns calories, increases strength, and helps improve your coordination and balance. Each time you hit the dance floor you’ll get the chance to work your core, arms, legs, glutes, and back, while improving your flexibility, strength, balance, posture, and coordination. 

You don’t have to drag yourself to the gym to get in shape! You can do it at our dance lessons and it doesn’t have to feel like a chore! As you grow in your dancing skills and your confidence, you’ll start to enjoy dance lessons even more. Who knew getting in shape could be so fun?
