When it comes to dancing, there are plenty of great reasons that people elect to dance. The fact remains that far too few of us manage to incorporate dance into our lives nearly as much as we should. There are many wonderful reasons to dance, and they do not all require copious amounts of alcohol.

Below are the 7 great reasons to incorporate dance into your life as often as possible. I hope that you will take some of these to heart and find a few ideas of your own to dance more often.

Love

There are few more significant reasons to dance than to show your love for your partner. You do not have to limit your dancing to your wedding night or an evening out with friends. All you need to dance with the one you love is some good music and a little bit of floor space. Dance while you prepare dinner, wash dishes, or just because it’s raining outside. But dancing with the one you love and do it often to keep those flames burning.

Joy

We always hear people talking about dancing for joy but how often do we see that happen? What a shame it is that we take so few opportunities to dance in our society. Dancing is an outward expression of joy that is almost always infectious. Share your happiness with the world, and you might find they will dance along with you. Even if they do not, you should at least be secure in the fact that at this moment in time you are much happier than they are.

Fun

When is the last time you’ve danced? Was it fun? I have found very few people (well other than young boys) who did not have any fun while dancing. The truth of the matter is that dancing is fun. Whether you are line dancing or trying the Tango, it is great fun to dance.

Flirting

What an excellent way to flirt dancing can be! If you haven’t tried it with the one you love, there is no time like the present to do so. Find some great fun and flirty music and dance for the one you love. If you’re fortunate, you might even convince them to join in.

To Make Your Children Laugh

There is no better reason on the earth than this to dance. My kids love to see me dance the moves that were popular back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and shared their more modern steps with me. It’s a great way to enjoy your children before they decide your evil or during those rare moments when you may be on the verge of neutral in their opinions.

Fitness

While dancing does a lot to lighten the mood and raise your spirits, it can also help your heart in other ways as well. Dancing is a great way to get up and moving that doesn’t feel as though it is exercised. This means that you can help your heart by dancing a little while every day. The longer you dance, the better you will feel, and the healthier your heart will become.

Meet New People

If you decide to take lessons for dancing, you will find that you can meet a bunch of great new people. Dancing is a great way that many people are discovering to have fun and stay fit. This means that more and more people are joining local dance classes for these very reasons. You might develop some lifelong friendships through your dance lessons that you would have missed out on otherwise.

Of course, there are many more reasons that different people take up dance. In fact, you may find an all-together different reason to take up dance for yourself. Whatever your reason you decide to dance, do it often and have fun in the process.
