It's Never Too Late to Learn to Dance

Aug 5, 2008
Some people go through life hiding during wedding receptions, or avoiding dance parties all together because they never had the chance to learn to dance. But if dancing is something you've always wanted to do, I am here to tell you--IT IS NEVER TOO LATE! Whether you're eight or eighty, dance is something you can begin to learn and immediately enjoy.

Not only is it an art form, but it is an excellent way to stay fit and feel good about yourself! Would you rather walk on a mindless track to get a workout? Or would you rather learn to tap dance like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers? Because dance is a form of exercise, you want to make sure that you stretch your body and drink plenty of water so that you don't become fatigued during the classes. Talk to your doctor if you have any chronic condition that you think would be affected by regular exercise. Invest in some comfortable clothing and shoes that will allow you freedom to move around. Remember to stretch before and after, just as you would with any other workout. Just because dancing is fun doesn't mean you can't get injured! A few safety precautions will help you get the most out of your lessons, and ensure you have a wonderful time learning to dance.

If you're an older student, you may feel intimidated by joining a beginner's class, but I suggest meeting with the instructor before you start to discuss your concerns or fears about learning to dance. You will find that the typical dance instructor is someone who had dedicated their lives to teaching people something they love. Chances are they will do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable, and they will be able to give you some tips for making the most out of your learning experience.

If you are concerned that modern dance jus isn't your style, you'll be pleased to know that classic dances from the 1920's through the 1950's are making a huge comeback! College aged students are now taking classes to learn swing dancing and other popular styles from years gone by. Who knows? You may even be able to teach your fellow students a think or two!

If you still aren't sure you want to join a class by yourself, ask a friend or even a group of friends. It can also be a wonderful experience for family members to learn together. Consider asking a daughter or granddaughter to join with you. You'll both be learning something wonderful, and spending time together. Then, at your next family reunion, you can surprise everyone with your amazing new dance skills!

Many people go through life putting of what they really want to do, only to find that it leaves them with regrets as they get older. Learning to dance is one of the most common things that people put off learning to do. They'll wait their whole lives and never take the chance. Don't live with regret! If you've always wanted to dance--do it now!
