Rocking Around the Christmas Tree at Holiday Parties


Schedule Dance Lessons Just in Time for Holiday Parties!


Holiday parties are back! Get ready for your office holiday soiree by brushing up on your dance moves at Fred Astaire Dance Studios.


After a subdued holiday season last year, people are ready to let loose and party. The pandemic put a halt to many holiday plans as people stayed home to flatten the curve. Office parties were canceled, travel plans were put on hold, and families spent the holidays together quietly at home. The wide availability of the vaccine and falling COVID numbers are giving people the confidence to resume socializing, and December calendars are once again full of fun get-togethers with friends, corporate holiday parties, and shindigs at favorite restaurants. A new survey from PwC reveals consumers are ready to celebrate. Consumers are predicted to spend an average of $1,447 on gifts, travel, and entertainment this year, up more than 20 percent from last year.


Get ready for the Christmas festivities by improving your dance moves to impress your friends, family, and co-workers. Learning ballroom dance at Fred Astaire Dance Studios is fun. Our unique teaching method helps you learn faster, regardless of your age, dancing ability, or physical fitness. We offer group and private lessons where you can master the cha-cha, foxtrot, or waltz.


Benefits of Ballroom Dancing

If you are still on the fence about learning ballroom dance, here are some of the benefits of ballroom dance lessons.


Improve mental health. The holidays are fun and festive, but they can also be stressful. Spending time with family, buying holiday gifts, and the pressure of making the holiday special can do a number on your emotional well-being. Ballroom dancing can reduce stress and anxiety. It is also a great way to decrease loneliness, and music makes you relax, let go and unwind.


Increase Physical Fitness. One of the perks of the holidays is indulging in all of the delicious cocktails, appetizers, and desserts served this month. While the holiday fare hits the spot, it may add a few extra pounds to your waistline. Dancing burns calories, improves cardiovascular health, and increases flexibility. It also strengthens weight-bearing bones to help improve bone density and prevent or slow osteoporosis.


Boost Self-Confidence. Learning to ballroom dance can give your self-confidence the boost it needs as you rev your social life back up. Dancing helps improve self-confidence and increase self-esteem by providing an expressive outlet and the opportunity to learn something new.


Take a look at these performers spreading holiday cheer in some of our favorite Christmas movies.


The movie, “Scrooged” is a modern-day retelling of “The Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. Bill Murray plays Frank Cross, a cynical television executive, who eventually learns the importance of living life to the fullest every day of the year. The closing scene features the song “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.


Kurt Russell singing “Santa Claus is Back in Town” is the holiday cheer you need this season. The movie “Christmas Chronicles” is a great film for the entire family.


“The Polar Express,” starring Tom Hanks, puts viewers in the mood for the holidays. The live-action motion capture animation in “The Polar Express” will be enjoyed by both parents and children. In this clip, the children on the train enjoy hot chocolate and a show.
