Social dancing events are a great way to socialise, make friends and have some fun. Events come in all shapes and sizes. Salsa, Kizomba and other Latin dance styles are particularly popular, but recent years have seen a real resurgence in big band style dances. For example dance styles such as swing, lindy hop, disco, line, country dancing and a whole lot more!
Reasons to go social dancing
Dance is a great way to keep fit while you have fun. Just a couple hours of dancing a week can help you stay in shape and provide your recommended dose of exercise.
There are also proven health benefits of learning to dance. Mild exercise improves the condition of your respiratory system and improves the circulation of oxygen around the body. As a result, your cardiovascular fitness improves and you develop muscle tone and strength.
Dancing is also great for confidence. Being able to learn a new skill and feel comfortable dancing with a partner is a huge boost for the self esteem. Dance also raises endorphin levels and elevates your mood. It makes you FEELGOOD, which is what NearYou is all about!
Types of dance event
Here on Dance Near You, there are so many different events that offer great experiences to dancers of all genders, age and experience levels.
If you're looking for something local, you can attend one off events that offer a whole night of dancing, drinking and fun with friends.
Alternatively, some dance instructors run dance holidays! A weekend away with plenty of dancing. Spend the weekend as part of a group who love to dance as much as you do. Get lessons from experienced instructors before putting what you've learnt to the test in evenings full of fun!
If you're really looking for a traditional and authentic dance experience, some dance Holidays take place in the countries of origin. For example, spend a week in Havana! Take in the culture the island of Cuba has to offer by day and then dance the night away with some traditional latin ballroom.
