Why Dance Classes Make the Perfect Holiday Gift
Dancing can be aerobic, entertaining, and stress reducing. Dancing has been around for many years and is often a part of many celebratory events including weddings, school dances, and even a night out with your friends. Although many people wish they could dance better, many enjoy dancing. Gifting dance classes is a great gift idea, for anyone on your holiday shopping list.
Dancing is a good exercise
Less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day and only one in three adults receive the recommended amount of physical activity each week. With busy schedules and an especially busy holiday season, it seems like there is never enough time to exercise. The good thing about dancing is that you don?t even realize that you are exercising. You are having so much fun that the exercise part gets pushed to the back of your mind. Gift these same physical exercise benefits to the person in your life looking to increase their daily exercise amount.
Dancing can be extremely stress reducing
Most people are stressed during the holiday season. You have a long shopping list and you are getting your house ready for guests. You are probably rushing to get work completed before leaving for the holidays. Throughout all of this, you are trying to figure out how to pay for it. Don?t let the stressors of the holiday season wear you down. Find ways to reduce stress daily and gift these same stress reducing activities to your family and friends. Dance training is a great option.
Dancing is good for social activity
Although you are likely to see more of your family and friends during the holiday season than any other time of the year, it can be overwhelming trying to catch up with everyone at once. Instead of planning just a holiday meal, consider planning social activities to do with your family and friends. Ballroom dance lessons can be a great way to reconnect with your spouse during this busy time too. Ballroom dance lessons are not just for weddings. They make the perfect date night or gift for your favorite couple needing an adult only evening. Adult dance classes or ballroom dance lessons for adults are also great for singles during a season that can be lonely for those without a significant other.
Dancing is educational
Dancing has a long interesting history. If you have a history buff or interested child in your family, introducing them to the history of dance can make for a great gift. Ballroom dance lessons are especially interesting because there are so many different types of classes to choose from. Ballroom dance usually refers to the ten dances of International Ballroom (or standard) and International Latin, though the term is also often used interchangeably with the five International Ballroom dances.
Dancing as a hobby
You probably enjoyed your childhood because of a lack of commitment and daily activities that you enjoyed. You likely had a ton of hobbies. Many adults lose these hobbies as they get older and daily requirements take over. Yet, studies show that engaging in a hobby can be rewarding. It can improve overall mental health, social relationships, and reduce stress. When you gift dance programs to your family and friends, you are giving them that same opportunity at a hobby again.
Dancing provides adults with many advantages. It can be a fun source of exercise. It can also be a stress reliever. Finally, dance can strengthen your social relationships. More and more people are learning about these advantages, as the nonprofit USA Dance Inc. reports a 35% spike in the number of people taking lessons and attending ballroom events over the past 10 years. Purchasing these dance class vouchers from your local dance studio is also a perfect holiday gift for the upcoming holiday season.
