Why Fall Is the Best Season to Learn Ballroom Dancing

While the summer feels like it has lasted forever, it won’t be long before the leaves begin to change, signaling the start of fall. With the autumn leaves will come cooler weather and seasonal traditions that make the season so magical. If you’ve ever considered trying out ballroom dance, we at Fred Astaire Dance Studios feel that fall is the best season for it. Here are four reasons why fall is the perfect time to start your ballroom education!


Reason #1: Fall’s chill is chasing you indoors!


The weather is getting colder, so it’s a good time to start an indoor exercise activity that will keep you moving in the fall and winter months. The Centers for Disease Control recommends that adults spend at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week doing something active, and dancing is the perfect way to satisfy that requirement.


Reason #2: Back-to-school is the perfect time for you to start learning something new!


Fall is back-to-school season, so it’s a great time to start learning something new along with the kids in your life! Kids are going back to school, and if you ever feel the urge to return to your youth, a great way to do that is by learning something new. Experts recommend taking classes to keep your mind sharp, and dancing is a great way to learn and work on your physical fitness at the same time.


Reason #3: Fall is the start of party season!


Fall is the start of party season, and events like homecoming are a lot more fun when you know how to dance. As the parties ramp up, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to showcase your new dancing skills. Dressing to impress is cool, but dancing to impress is way better.


Reason #4: Dancing is a great way to meet new friends – and more – of all ages!


When summer turns to fall, many of the favorite social events, like outdoor concerts and festivals, are lost in the frigid air and early sunsets. To keep your social life humming and meet new people in your area, you’ll want to start a new hobby. Ballroom dance can take a lot of the awkwardness out of meeting new people, as it allows you to be paired up with someone you might be interested in without having to ask them directly, and the cooperative nature of the class makes small talk easy.

Fall is a season of bright colors, cool weather and warm drinks. Make dancing a part of your fall tradition this year by starting a ballroom class at your local Fred Astaire Dance Studio! Find the nearest one to you here.
