The Three Types of People who Hate Ballroom Dance
“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way,” Wayne Dyer once said. So, if you want to enjoy each step of the way, which dance style is best for you? I can’t answer that. But what I can say is that if you fall into one of the categories below, you may want to stray away from ballroom dancing lessons.
You’re not straight and you want to learn to dance with your partner
This is probably not the couples activity for you. Ballroom is old school, and the conventions of this popular style of dance show it. Dance instructors are likely to trip over your difference the during the whole class, so do yourself a favor. If you and your hubby are looking for first wedding dance lessons, try a more modern style with more modern ideas about partnership.
You have bad posture
Ballroom dancing is an Olympic sport. Running is to soccer what yoga might be to ballroom dancers. Posture is a must. Dance classes could give you the change to work on your posture. However, if you have a hard time being bad at things and your have pore posture, ballroom dancing lessons might not be for you.
You hate touching strangers
Do you flinch on the train when your elbow touches another person? Can’t stand when the person behind you in line is a little too close? Steer clear of the dance studio. Dance classes are a wonderful social opportunity but they require a lot of communication and touching. If that’s not your shtick, you might not love ballroom.
So, you can still take on Dyer’s logic. Not all activities are advancement based. However, people have their limitations. It’s OK to say that dance isn’t for you. For more information, read this website.
