How Dancing Increases Your Confidence

By | February 12, 2018

Dancing requires confidence but did you know dancing builds your confidence on and off the dance floor?

Want to gain confidence, make new friends, find that new relationship or perhaps improve your social life? You can achieve all these and much more by taking regular dance lessons. Learning to dance gives you more confidence, builds your skills and can open a completely new social circle for you without the pressure of contrived speed dating or the discomfort of blind dates.

It’s well known that dancers are more confident, walk taller and are more aware of their bodies than non-dancers. They pay attention to their fitness and they tend to eat healthier foods. After a few dance lessons, even though you may just be starting to master the basics you will feel your confidence growing as you see your progress. It goes without saying that a good dose of encouragement helps too, because it often you are making progress, even when it may not feel like it.

Social partner dancing, (for example salsa, ballroom, swing and modern jive) has many benefits one of which is building your confidence as a dancer. Forget dancing alone at a club, where, if you’re not already an excellent dancer you may feel clumsy even if you love dancing. Why not learn to partner dance to your favourite club sounds instead?

Partner dancing without a partner?

One of the great things about a modern jive dance class is that you don’t need to have a partner to attend and enjoy them. For singles, going to a dance class alone is the first of many big steps. You’re quite not sure what to expect or even if you’re doing the right thing. You’re worried everyone is going to be better than you are and that you’ll stand out. You may even be worried that everyone will be partnered up except you. So attending your first dance class in spite of your fears is a huge step towards building confidence. You’ve proved to yourself that “You can do it.”
