Improve your Social Life with Dance

Looking to get out and meet new people?  Try taking dance lessons.  Dancing is a social activity that allows you to meet many new people.  Dancing is a natural icebreaker and a fun and exhilarating social activity.  The confidence that you gain through dancing will come out in any social situation.
When it comes to dance socials, lessons provide men with confidence to ask a woman to dance because they recognize which dance is being played and how to properly dance. Women, on the other hand, gain grace, poise, and the skills of following a trained dancer, making dancing more enjoyable and fun.
People will go to all extremes to make themselves attractive to the opposite sex.  Hours are spent in the gym and millions are spent on cosmetics and stylish clothing just to gain a slight advantage in the dating game.  Unfortunately for these people, they will always have to take a back seat to a good dancer.  The best way to be noticed, in a favorable light, is on the dance floor.  A couple of lessons at By the Sea Ballroom & Latin Dance Studio is all you will need to turn your dancing and romantic life around.

Night Club Tips for Dancers....

Tips for the Ladies ...

A successful strategy toward dancing all night, apart from knowing how to dance, is to be seen dancing.  Guys are generally a shy lot, but if they know you can and will dance, you'll be dancing all night. a good dance club or studio party.  A place with a wide range of ages works best. Some of those older guys can really dance!

Wear something bright and colorful, just be sure, whatever it is, it's noticeable!  Dance places can be dim as dusk, so make sure you don't blend into the shadows.  Arrive early and position yourself as close to the dance floor as possible.  Sit or stand near the dance floor, preferably where guys coming off the floor will see you first.  Most importantly, don't congregate with a group of women.  No guy is going to walk up to several women hanging together and risk that kind of rejection.

Smile till it hurts!  If you don't look like you're enjoying yourself, you probably won't be!  Don't be afraid to make eye contact.  Say, "Yes!" to the first dance offer, no matter who it is, and keep on saying it.  This is the most important rule!  Being picky is counter-productive, so lose the attitude!  If you're seen saying no, you'll be left with only the blind and the bold - a small, and not necessarily cute, minority.  The point of saying yes every time is to increase your chances of meeting talented, interesting dance partners.  If you do this right, good dancers will soon monopolize your time anyway.  Ask good dancers to teach you something new!  They'll usually be happy to oblige and will seek you out in the future.

Oh, and don't chew gum - or if you have to, do it with your mouth closed.


Tips for the Guys ... 
Some of the above and then...

Find a smiling gal who's near the dance floor and ask her to dance.  But for goodness sake, take a few classes first and remember - smooth is as good or better than fancy!  A couple of basic steps done correctly and on tempo is more fun for your partner than a dozen pretzel turns done badly with the timing all screwed up.

Avoid dancing roughly - like pulling your partner's arm out of its socket.  It's bad form.  Remember, you want to look good, and you can look really good if you make your partner look good.  Make eye contact - dancing is about communication.

Dance with all sorts of partners, it'll make you a better dancer, not to mention, it'll make you seem like a nice guy.

ALSO, if you haven't showered, shaved, or brushed your teeth for a while, it might be a good idea to do that first!

You don't want women to be pointing you out for the wrong reasons!

Romantic Elements of Dance

Ballroom dancing is as romantic as it is pleasurable.  For years the world’s greatest romantics have known the best way into the heart of a woman is to sweep her across the dance floor.   Embracing, touching, holding and moving to the music is the most romantic skill any couple can add to their lives.  Think of all the numerous relationships that would have never started without the world’s best ice breaker — “May I have this dance?”

The romantic elements of dance are a secret that all good dancers enjoy.  For men, being able to recognize which dance the disc jockey is playing and having the confidence in your ability to walk across the floor and ask a lady to dance is a social requirement.  For ladies, they will always be in demand as a partner once they master the graceful poise, elegant styling and the all-important following skills. 

Dancing can help strengthen a relationship. It provides the opportunity for you to express  your deepest emotions towards your partner, accelerating your relationship into a more sensual mood.  New excitement and vivacity can be found together on the dance floor.  When you take ballroom dancing lessons as a couple, you learn skills that improve your romantic relationship by building your confidence not only on the dance floor, but in other areas of your relationship.   Through dancing, you pick up romantic skills such as the holding, touching, and moving to the music that dancing requires. All of this is done while you're spending quality time together having fun!  Contact By the Sea and enhance your relationship today.
