Overcome Your Fear of Social Dancing
If you had to answer “what keeps you from dancing socially?” what would you say? Is it fear of looking like a fool on the dance floor? Is it fear of meeting new people? Or specifically fear of having to talk to new people? Is it fear of hurting your back, knees, or some other injury? We understand that these fears can seem daunting and most people will cave to these fears and never try something new like social dancing. But what if you did it anyway? Overcoming fear is an important life skill that will teach you a lot about yourself and how to manage what life throws at you.
