Is Ballroom Dancing the New Couple’s Therapy Session?

benefits of ballroom dance class

All relationships have their highs and lows.
So when any relationship really starts to feel the strain, you usually have two options: you go in denial and pretend that everything is okay. Or you drag yourself for counseling before things start looking too grim.
Actions speak louder than words.

But there is a third ‘D’ in the picture that might put things into perspective.
That D is for dancing!
It may sound absurd but dancing is the new couple’s therapy. It is fun, it’s effective and it doesn’t involve invasive questions. You’re probably shaking your head right now.
But we want you to spare a few minutes and hear us out.

Why’s Dancing a Good Option?

Look at the introductory quote again and think about how actions help build your relationships. From sweet gestures, holding their hand to the first kiss―every action brought you closer.
In a similar manner, signing up for a couple’s dance class can ease the tension away.
Let’s look at how that happens:

1. Get Close and Personal

Take a step forward and cover the distance.
Sometimes couples are so wrapped up in their children’s lives that they forget the importance of intimacy. A pat on the shoulder, a kiss on the cheek and you’re off to work. Unwittingly, these things start creating distances in the relationship. You stop sharing details of your day and or taking time off for ‘date nights’.
Dancing is intimate by nature. It gives you a chance to reconnect with your partner both physically and personally. The hours you spend during dance class helps you forget the world and think only about the person in front of you.

2. The Balancing Act

Are you waiting for your partner to make the first move?
Well, you shouldn’t! Dancing teaches you how it takes two to make things work. It teaches you about gender roles and how sometimes trusting the other person is all that matters. You also learn something about teamwork and partnership. Basically, the lessons on synchronization and coordination come handy in real-life too!

3. Sparks Fly

Want to rekindle the romance?
Then there’s nothing dreamier than couple’s dance lessons. If you’re a beginner then you get to take up the challenge as a team. It’s an exciting thing to do with someone who’s known you for decades. Even if you know how to dance then it becomes a romantic escapade. You get to sneak away from the responsibilities of marital life and just be together.

It’s a Wrap

In short, dancing is the new couple’s therapy because it reopens lines of communication. It’s also way better than spending hours venting on a couch. Doesn’t it?
