Even if you missed your chance to attend dance classes as a child, it’s not too late to start!
While you’ll probably never become a star of Swan Lake (sorry to dash any dreams) you can still achieve a respectable level. More importantly you can get fit while having fun.
So grab your dance shoes! Here are some suggestions for finding the perfect adult dance lesson.
Find a dance class that is close to your home or your work place. As an adult with a multitude of responsibilities, proximity is often the BEST answer. If something is too far away, we have the likelihood of losing the motivation to go.
As mentioned above there are TONS of class options. Whether you’re looking for a traditional ballet class, a cardio based class like Hip hop or Zumba, something to do with your significant other – step forward ballroom – there’s a class for you. So take the time to consider what you’re really looking to get out of your class.
Check the schedule of classes offered at your location. Do they offer classes that fit into your own personal schedule? Or do they conflict with other obligations for work, home and kids? Again choosing a class that doesn’t feel like or a chore, or one that is rushed will help you stick with it longer. And the longer you participate, the more benefits – such as coordination, flexibility, and higher energy levels – you’ll get out of it.
Getting involved in dance classes as an adult, especially as parents, may help inspire your own child. If they have never had exposure to dance, your participation and enjoyment may spark them to try a class of their own. If they have been bored with their current dance classes this may give them the extra push to find their own passion and love for dance again.
Bottom line? Dance can inspire both younger and older generations. It knows no boundaries or limitations.
