Arthur Murray Dance CentersMany couples become creatures of habit after years together. They find themselves doing many of the same things, the same way, over and over again. It is easy for couples to fall into a routine that isn’t exactly interesting or fun. If you are looking for something new and different, why not take up dance?! Here are 5 reasons couples should learn Ballroom Dance Lessons.

  1. Put some spice into your life!

What if you had a secret word that you could use with your other half to get you out of trouble? We know it! Are you ready? Write this down: Rumba. The rumba is a dance that tells a story of love and passion between a strong, male lover and a coy, teasing woman. Full of sensual movements, the rumba is considered by many to be the sexiest of the ballroom dances. The rumba is the dance of passion.

  1. Get out of your comfort zone!

When was the last time your spouse did something so spontaneous and out of character that you asked “Who are you?” in a good way? Dancing creates excitement and builds confidence. It can turn a mild-mannered Computer Analyst into a matador. So when he boldly leads you in a Tango maneuver that you’ve never done before, go with it!

  1. Get Physical together!

We could all use more exercise, but a lot of us end up walking on a treadmill or biking through the same old routes. These activities can be mundane and don’t usually build a sense of partnership. Plus, unlike some two-player sports, like tennis or racquetball, dancing is unique because you and your partner get to be on the same team! Dance will bring you closer and give you more to talk about. On top of it all, you can burn up to 300 calories per lesson. BOOM! There’s your new workout routine.

  1. More Options for fun!

If you gamble, you know where all the card clubs are. If you shop, you know which stores to go to. Of course, anyone can visit the Mall of America or a casino, but if you know how to dance, you will have all kinds of options for going out! You will discover new places that play your favorite music, and you’ll know which dances to have ready to go when you get there. Thank you, dance classes! Last time we checked, going out dancing rated 10,000 times higher than Applebee’s on the “Sexy Date Night” rankings.

  1. Dating… again!

How long has it been since you and your other half were “dating”? It’s easy to think of it as a past-tense period of time, but it doesn’t have to be. Chances are, you’ve just become too busy to date the way you used to. You may do something exciting on your anniversary, but how many of your regular date nights are “brag-worthy”? Now let’s try that same question after taking some dance lessons together! There aren’t enough movies or card games in the world to compete. You’ll learn something together, and you’ll likely fall even deeper in love!
