3 Reasons Why Ballroom Dancing is the Best Date Night Idea

Updated: May 11, 2022

Are you tired of the old dinner and a movie date? Ballroom dancing could be the date night you've been waiting for.

Reason #1 ~ Opportunity to Learn About Your Partner

Whether it's your first date or your 100th date, there is always something new you can learn about your partner. And dancing can certainly teach you something new about your loved one. Partner dancing gives you a chance to see a side of him/her that you regularly wouldn't in your daily routine. When you are learning a new pattern in ballroom or latin dancing, you are coordinating your mind and body to be in sync with your partner's. This gives you an insight into how your partner processes new things and what their strengths and weaknesses are - giving you a better look at who they are as a person.

Reason #2 ~ Teamwork

Sometimes life can pull you apart, both physically and emotionally. Ballroom dancing can help bring back that spark, or even start it!

Having great teamwork grows any relationship because it forces you to work together; to communicate, listen, and have patience in order to achieve a shared goal. That is true for both a relationship and ballroom dancing.

When you are communicating with someone, there is an action and reaction that takes place. In Ballroom dancing, the Leader initiates a dance move and the Follower reacts to, or follows, that lead. This process causes you to slow down and listen to your partner's body language. It also helps you to reflect on how your body language is affecting your partner which is an important practice for any relationship.

In partner dancing, verbal communication is just as important as nonverbal communication. When you dance with someone, you learn how to articulate what you feel and think regarding a dance pattern and work together to make it better. Learning to listen and apply what your partner expresses to you is a great way to bond with your date, and it gives you a chance to understand them more in the long run.

Reason #3 ~ It's Fun!

What better way to take your mind off the many stressors of life, than to do something fun together on your date. Ballroom dancing gives you a chance to learn something new and grow with your partner. As you learn the dance patterns, you get to laugh and bond in a way that's different from your norm. And when you leave, it doesn't have to stop there. You can always put on your favorite music at home and review the patterns you learned together as another date night. And then come back and learn more so that the connection and fun never stops!

Learning new things about your partner, building teamwork, and having fun are all things that bring you closer to your date and give you memories that last for a lifetime.
