"I would encourage anybody, young or old, to learn ballroom dancing."
-Gladys Dormire, Fort Wayne Student
Before long, your kids will recognize the dances they see on TV and may even teach you a step or two. What it all boils down to is that learning how to ballroom dance is different, and therefore, keeps them engaged. They’ll get a chance to learn in a fun environment, don’t need to have any prior dance experience, or need a partner to take lessons.
Why choose ballroom dancing for my child?
- Your child loves dancing but not leotards. Kids can learn to dance in comfortable clothing in an a relaxed and fun environment. If ballet, jazz, or tap isn’t their thing, maybe ballroom is.
- Ballroom dancing is timeless. Partner dancing is a skill that doesn’t go out of style. Getting them involved early makes an impact on their social future.
- Change up their routine. Want to give them an activity that is both athletic and artistic? Nothing changes up the routine like learning the Tango, Salsa, or Swing. Boredom sets in when things get predictable. There is always something new to learn in dancing!
