TEN GREAT REASONS TO DANCE

Dancing Is Fun


Dancing is an enjoyable pastime for millions of people around the world. Where there is music, you'll find people's feet tapping along, itching to get out there and dance! There is a dance for almost every occasion, weddings, parties, formal balls etc. Don't miss out on the opportunity to have fun and meet new people.

Building Self Confidence


A competent dancer learns to carry themselves well. Dancing builds self esteem in both children and adults which is vital for any social or business situation. Dancing also improves your posture and carriage.

Meeting New People


While you are unlikely to find the love of your life (though some have!) you will get an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

Keeping Fit


Recommended by leading heart specialists as a great way to stay in shape, dancing is a physical activity that gets the heart pumping and the blood flowing without putting too much stress on the body. It is also the most enjoyable and social way of getting and staying fit.

Broaden Social Opportunities


A man who is a competent dancer will be in great demand at any function. Being able to competently dance a lady around the floor is an important tool in a man's social and business life. Even the British Army made it compulsory for all officers to learn to dance so that none will be "embarrassed socially", and the All Blacks take dance lessons to improve their skills for their many social engagements. For any woman, skill on a dance floor will make her stand out and be noticed.

Learning To Dance For Weddings And Other Formal Events


Getting married? School Formal? University Ball? Can't dance? Stand in the corner at a dance? Does your partner itch to be on the floor while you want to avoid it as much as possible? There are so many occasions where dancing forms an important part of the evening, so why not learn to dance now and you will be able to carry off the event with skilful self-assurance.

Improving Co-ordination Skills


Dancing is great for improving timing and co-ordination skills, as well as footwork. It's excellent training for all those who play sports that involve these three things.

Competitive Dance Sport


Many people dance competitively for sport. New Zealand dancers (many of them coached by Colleen) regularly compete in competitions in Christchurch, throughout the country, and overseas. Spectators are very welcome at these events.

Dancing Makes an Excellent Hobby or Pastime


Some people don't want to dance competively at all, still they enjoy dancing for it's own sake. For those people there are still advanced Latin, Ballroom and New Vogue classes that will take them beyond the simple first steps learned in beginners classes to advanced routines and technique.

Dancing Encourages Children To Develop Self Discipline


Dancing is great for children's fitness and self-esteem, and one of things that Colleen enjoys the most is teaching them. As well as self confidence and self disipline, children learn vital social interaction skills.
