Shall we dance!
Not so long ago, girls and boys in a town would attend special parties to
meet potential partners. The dance was the place where seeds of marriages were planted.
Proms and charity balls were very important for every girl in town so they could be seen and hopefully asked to dance by the most desirable boys.

Well, that time is gone. Now with so many
opportunities to meet other people, dances and clubs are less effective than the

Dance clubs are very popular and their members tend to be people who did not dance prior to joining the clubs. People are taking
dance lessons and
practicing at home with their loved ones to show off at the dance floor. We are not talking about the disco era and the complex dance that defined the late seventies; we are talking of tango, country, flamenco,
belly dance, Irish line dancing, salsa, meringue, cha-cha, ballroom and so many others.

Entertainment for couples does not have to be about food all the time. If you start to dance, your inhibitions go away as you become better. The advantage to belong to a club is that there are people at every level; so you do not have to feel bad if you do not dance like a pro. When it comes to dancing, it is better to leave the competitive spirit that defines our society out. Dancing is not about competing; it is about having fun.

Tango clubs are one of the fastest growing dance clubs in the USA according to the Tango Society of Boston. Tango is a very passionate and emotional dance; it is very elegant and refined as well. Although it looks difficult, the basic steps are easy and many tango clubs and societies offer some sort of free activities where you can go and get a taste of it. In Boston, for example, the Tango Society presents Moonlight Tango Night once a month during the warm months, and in many other cities other tango societies offer similar opportunities. You can search on
Google for local events or you can take a class in a continuing education program.
Why should you two dance?
Because it is fun and different. Many couples struggle over how to break the routine, how to do different things to
bring back the passion or to keep the relationship fresh. Many couples end up doing the same things all the time: movies, dinner, games and friends. All of this is great, but if you are looking for something different that does not require learning for years or spending thousands of dollars, then dancing and practicing once in a while is a good idea.
Another important reason for many people, particularly women, to look for activities where food is not the main attraction is that they are trying to
keep in shape or lose weight. It simply does not make sense to an expensive restaurant if your lady friend is only going to eat salad and drink iced tea. Therefore, dance offers a great opportunity to spend time together doing something fun and to have a moderate workout at the same time.
Frankly we expect that you will not dance like the pros. Most of us are not very good at it, but you can learn some basic steps and learn to appreciate the music and let your body follow the rhythm. Dancing is
bootylicious: either you are naturally born for it or you learn some steps.
Dancing helps us fight inhibitions and forget our shapes; it can help us to accept our bodies as they are. Celia Cruz, the great Cuban singer was not an example of a perfect body during her later years, but to see her dancing was a pleasure, because she enjoyed deeply and everybody could see it. Yes, no matter how bad you think you are, you can dance (with someone you love).
