Put a spring in your mom’s step and a smile on her face this Mother’s Day by gifting her with dance lessons to honor her special day.


Finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift to honor your mom’s spirit and dedication can be a challenge. Fred Astaire Dance Studios is here to help you shine on Mother’s Day by giving your mother a gift that will help her stay healthy and have fun. Our local studios offer private or group dance lessons as well as streaming lessons you can take in your living room through our Online Lesson Platform. Fred Astaire Dance Studios’ mission is to enrich lives through the positive, transforming power of dance. Many of our local studios are also offering special deals for moms to help introduce them to the time-honored tradition of ballroom dancing.


Here are just a few of the reasons to give your mother dance lessons this year.


Improves physical fitness

Mothers are the ultimate caretakers, but they often forget to take time to care for themselves. In addition, American women are becoming mothers later in life, according to Pew Research. Many women are delaying childbirth to focus on their careers. As you age, ballroom dancing can be a great hobby to increase flexibility and fuel weight loss. Take a look at this mother and son who brought the energy to the dance floor during a wedding dance that bucks tradition and delights the attendees.


Provides Unique Social Experience

While most U.S. mothers are married, nearly one-quarter are solo moms. About 9 million mothers are living with a child younger than 18 without a spouse or partner, according to Pew Research. Solo moms are juggling work, childcare, and household responsibilities, leaving them with few opportunities to hit the town with friends or find the man of their dreams. Giving your mom dance lessons provides them with a fun, social activity they can do with a group of girlfriends. Check out these moms dancing with their sons for a high school homecoming event.


Dancing is Good for the Mind, Mental Health

Moms are tasked with keeping a lot of balls in the air. As the head of the household, they are the taskmasters and calendar keepers. Keeping track of all the doctor’s appointments, sports events, and special moments requires mental acuity. Learning ballroom dance steps has been proven to improve brain function and boost memory. Many moms are overworked and underappreciated, which takes a toll on their mental health. Dancing releases endorphins that can help improve your mood.
