WHY BALLROOM DANCING Why Should Children Ballroom Dance?

Ballroom dancing creates a distinct atmosphere where boys and girls come together as duos, fostering the development of their sporting abilities and cultivating genuine and gracious character traits.

Ballroom Boys

Ballroom Dancing stands out as a unique fusion of sport and art that emphasizes the integration of physical strength and the development of true gentlemanly qualities. Within the realm of competitive Ballroom Dancing, known as DanceSport, participants acquire and blend the core elements of the sport such as endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, and speed. Simultaneously, important lessons in graciousness and respect, particularly towards females, are imparted. These teachings contribute to the character development of young boys, transforming them into confident and selfless gentlemen who carry these values throughout their lives.
