The 5 most common fears about learning to dance
Are you thinking about ballroom dancing lessons, but you’re not sure if it’s for you? We answer the questions that most often bother beginner dancers.
1. “I don’t have a sense of rhythm, I can’t move nicely, I’ll just look ridiculous”
The ability to dance is indeed not something we are born with, so everyone who starts learning has a little wooden legs at the beginning, but this quickly changes as you learn. Dancing, on the other hand, improves our coordination, physical fitness, develops a sense of rhythm and helps to gain self-confidence. So it is a wonderful remedy to feel good in your own body!
2. “I’m too old to learn to dance”
If you are looking for a fun and healthy hobby that you can have a lot of fun with, there simply is no better option than ballroom dancing! The adventure with dance can be started at any age, regardless of fitness, and the lessons will be a great form of physical activity. You don’t have to know anything at all, that’s what you go to class for, to learn new skills.
3. “I don’t have a partner”
At Arthur Murray no one needs to come with a partner to dance – we also offer a pro-am class format which is one-on-one lessons where you dance with instructors. This is a very effective method that you have surely seen on shows such as Dancing with the Stars.
4. “Lessons will be boring or too complicated”
Sure, each of us has once met a not-so-great teacher, lessons with whom were downright tiring, and the image of a professional dancer is often associated primarily with exhausting work. Will something like this happen to you during training at Arthur Murray? No way!
It is not without a coincidence that our motto is “to help you enjoy life more through dance”. Dance classes at Arthur Murray are, above all, a pleasant way to spend time, chill out, and learn dance routines quickly and easily.
5. “Why, if I don’t need to know how to dance anyway”
Dancing is primarily about health benefits – it helps to stretch and relax, strengthen the body (especially the legs and spine) and sculpt the silhouette of your dreams. It also relieves the emotional tension that we experience so often these days.
During the classes you will learn universal steps that will allow you to feel good and dance freely anywhere, regardless of the type of music. Besides, dancing is a wonderful way to just have fun, meet new people or get a new interesting experience with your partner.
Still have any concerns? To dispel them, we invite you to a trial lesson – see for yourself!
