I remember my very first practice party. I had been learning how to social dance for two months. I felt like I was ready to test out my new skills at the studios Thursday night dance party. I was having a great time dancing every dance, meeting new people, that is until I danced with one woman who was considered an advanced dancer. Halfway through dancing our waltz, she stopped and asked me if I knew what I was doing because I am not dancing right. My timing was off, I wasn’t leading her right, and she didn’t like it. So she stopped in the middle of the dance and walked off the floor. I was crushed.

There are various ways to dance, and among them, ballroom dancing comes with its own special set of unique skills. Not only do you learn how to move your body, ballroom dancing requires that you do it in the presence of someone else. By moving together, you create a unique synchronicity with the music that helps not just the body, but the mind and the soul as well. Here are a few ways in which ballroom dancing can effectively be good for the soul.
