Everyone can dance. I mean it is just moving your body to a beat right? But, let's be honest we know this far from the truth. Everyone that's bad at dancer knows it's hard, but like all things, we can get better. It's like the first time you tried to write. It was messy, unclear, and didn't make sense. Dancing is something that's been around for 1000s of years and it's not going anywhere. Especially living in Montréal. Montréal has a huge dancing scene from dancing parties to festivals. Living Montréal you're around dancing a lot.

Whether you've been dancing for a while now, you just dance at parties/events or you're a bad dancer. Everyone can benefit from hiring a dance instructor. Dancing instructors can help anyone learn new dance moves or pick up a new style of dance. Or for those of you that don't dance, they can help you learn. 

Benefits Of Dancing

Dancing has endless benefits, whether you're looking to meet people, or have a good time, dancing offers it. Dancing is a very social event. Of course, you can turn up the music in your room and dance alone, but for the most part, you're always going to be with other people dancing. Dancing brings together everyone. You don't have to speak the language or have the same background to dance with others. Everyone can communicate through there moves. 

Some of the benefits of dancing include:

Have Fun - Dancing always brings out smiles on people's faces. It's fun to let loose and feel the music. It gives you a chance to have a good time with friends, family or spouse. Just turn the music on and grab a partner.

Well-Being - Dancing is very physical. For anyone that's danced all night or even just jumped up and down. You can feel your heartbeat faster and the sweat on your face. Dancing could be something to keep you in shape.

Meet People - Dancing is a very social event. I've said this numerous times because it's so true. It's a great way to break the ice with someone and it can be a common interest that connects you. 

Stress Relief - Dancing can be a stress relief. You might work long hours, or study hard and you need that stress relief. Dancing releases endorphins, the feel-good hormones, that melt that stress away and give you the time to relax

What To Expect For Your First Dance Class?

Everyone is going to be nervous about there first class. This goes for professional dancers to just being a beginner, everyone is going to feel the nerves of walking into a dance studio for the first time. The important thing to remember is everyone is there for the same reason, to dance. Your first-class jitters are completely normal and will go away after your first class. If you don't know what to expect during your first class and it's making you nervous, fear not. 

For your first class bring a change of clothes, a water bottle and a friendly attitude. You're going to want to wear something comfortable. Working out in jeans is always a bad idea and the same goes for dancing. You want to wear something you can have the flexibility and move properly in. The second item, water bottle, is another necessity. It's no doubt you're going to be getting physical. It's not always a guarantee that the dance class has a water fountain. You don't want to be thirsty. Lastly, that friendly attitude, be prepared to meet new people and have a good time. 

Overall, your first dance class will be great. Remember everyone there is having the same thoughts as you. Especially if this is your very first dance class, your going to be with other people who are also in their first class. You just need to let loose and have a good time.
