10 Great Reasons Why You Should Start Dancing – Benefits of Dancing

How many times have you sat on the sidelines and avoided dance opportunities? Learning how to become a social dancer changes all of that. Whether it’s at the studio, on vacation, or out on the town, a CareToDance social dance program is your passport that works on any dance floor, to any music, anywhere in the world!

Dance lessons have a wide range of benefits that go beyond simply being able to dance. Many people may see dancing as easy and something that just comes naturally to people but being able to move your body with the rhythm and in time to others is a great skill to have and is likely to benefit other parts of your life.

Entering a dance studio will be a new experience and that already is reason enough as seeking new experiences allows us to develop and get used to unfamiliar surroundings. As we grow and develop, these unfamiliar surroundings will become easy to deal with. This goes deeper into the potential embarrassment or nervousness that some people may feel, however unnecessary. There are bound to be others learning or who have previously had to learn and will know exactly how you are feeling.

Don’t be shy to give it a go. Here are a few great reasons why you should start dance lessons.


To gain confidence is a definite reason why you should dance! Do you think if you dance you will look silly? GREAT!

You may feel silly the first several times but the more that you dance, the greater your confidence will be.


It’s so much fun to dance!

There are so many styles of dancing that we teach at CareToDance to choose from. We find that dancing in a class can be so much more fun that at a club with friends.


When you discover that making the decision to learn how to dance is actually not that big of a deal, a light bulb will go off!

It will help free you to be more courageous in other ares of your life. As the saying goes “You only live once”

Stress Relief

Dancing, many say takes you to a tranquil space zone.

In this zone, your mind is totally clear and there is peace where you can then focus on the task at hand.

Fitness and health

This is one of the biggest benefits of lessons that often go unnoticed or unmentioned. You are using all of the muscles in your body when dancing and it is a great way to get fit.

It requires strength and cardio fitness giving you a complete workout. With so many different styles available and some dance studios now having poles, you can make your workout fun and stay fit and healthy without a boring gym session.

Your sport will improve

Because dance lessons improve your strength and fitness you will immediately be better prepared physically.

However, one of the biggest benefits is that you are teaching your body to move in more unique ways and to move instinctively and freely. This can be very beneficial for your sport as you become lighter on your feet and more agile helping you to get away from your opponents or reach the ball you couldn’t get before.


It might not be your own, but having a few practices in a dance studio will ensure that you are able to move along with everyone else at the next wedding you attend.

The bride and groom will often have had practice so it would be wise that you do to so that you don’t look out of place, and maybe even can show off a few moves to the rest of the crowd – careful not to outdo the bride and groom.

Parties & Social Gatherings

We all go to parties and our favourite song comes on and we can’t help but embarrass ourselves as we try to move to the beat and complete the same moves as in the music video. Dance lessons in a dance studio will be able to fix that in no time. You will quickly learn how to move your body to the rhythm of the beat and free up your limbs and muscles.

This is one of the major issues that people face – an inability to completely let themselves go and move to the music. Having a professional teach you will fast track your learning so you can dominate the floor at your next party.

Meeting New People

This is similar to confidence. When you discover that making the decision to learn how to dance is actually not that big of a deal, a light bulb will go off!

It will help free you to be more courageous in other ares of your life. As the saying goes “You only live once”
