Couples Dance Lessons

Swing Is Great For Couples Dance Lessons

When people think of couples dance lessons they often think of ballroom dance lessons.  There is nothing wrong with this thought.  I happen to enjoy ballroom dancing and would recommend it to anyone interested in couples dance lessons.  However most people fail to realize there are many styles of dance from which to pick.  There is ballroom dance, salsa, country partner dances, argentine, polka, zydeco and my favorite of course swing.  Which style of dance you choose to learn should be based on who you are and what you like.

So, if you are considering taking couples dance lessons, first ask yourself these questions.  “Do I like having fun?”  “Do I like social environments where I can meet people and make new friends?” It doesn’t matter if you are single or married, do you like making friends? “Can I laugh at myself when I just don’t get it?”  If you have answered yes, couples dance lessons are a good choice for you!  Now, you should ask yourself some secondary questions.  “Am I a more serious, romantic, proper kind of fun person?”  Perhaps you should try Ballroom, Argentine or maybe Salsa dancing.  “Am I a free spirited, like to laugh, goof ball kind of fun person?”  If this is you perhaps you should try Polka, Zydeco or my favorite Swing.  Age can also be a factor.  If you are younger, Swing dance crowds tend to be younger due to the athletic nature of many Swing styles.  However I have danced Swing with people in their 90’s.  If you are older, Ballroom crowds tend to be older as there are less physical styles you can dance in Ballroom.  Of course everything is what you make of it.  Ballroom can be quite physical as well and a challenge to young people.  Click Here for Ballroom Dance Lessons.

So, why is Swing so great for couples dance lessons?  Well, if you find that you fit the goof ball profile.  Swing is a dance style that thrives when it comes in contact with the goofy, unusual, free spirit.  If one day you have tried all the styles as I have, you will find that no dance style compares to Swings fun factor.  Yet I believe there is an even greater reason Swing should be one of your top picks.  Ladies if you got a man and you want him to like dancing, Swing is the style that will hook him.  There are a few reasons.  One is that music you can Swing to includes early Rock-n-Roll as well as modern Rockabilly music.  We’ll call this the cool factor.  He may find love songs and waltzes to be a bit less manly though I would beg to differ.  He also may not be interested in Salsa music if he is not Latin. Second, if your man struggles to get the beat or get his feet under himself Swing dancing is so lite hearted that he will find it easy to laugh off the situation.  Instead of leaving class in frustration, he will leave as the big oaf you have already come to adore.

So, when considering couples dance lessons, consider Swing!
