Why Ballroom

Why Should Teens Ballroom Dance?

To engage in Ballroom dancing is to enter a new world, a unique atmosphere where boys and girls come together in duos and construct their lifestyles of sport and true gracious character. Socialization combines with sport and establishes a world that many do not know even exist.

Boys

Why boys should ballroom dance

Ballroom Dancing is one of the only available spheres of sport and art that integrates physical strength with the importance of becoming a true gentleman in life, combining fundamental elements of athletics with the essential teachings of graciousness and gentleness towards others, especially females. Boys will work intensely on conditioning and witness the development of muscles and strength and control of those muscles in movement. As a result, flexibility improves, along with power, endurance, and speed. Self-confidence is another building block that forms from participating in dance class. Boys have difficulty expressing themselves in most situations, and dance is a form of assistance in doing so. Dance is all about self-expression, what one feels on the inside. To conquer a routine and perform it in front of others is a significant victory, especially for the growth of socialization in any boy’s life, no matter the age. Dancing for boys builds on many real-life components, from motivation to motor skills to confidence, focus, and personal satisfaction. These teachings evolve the character that transforms young boys into young gentlemen who carry these traits of self-confidence and selflessness throughout the rest of their lives.

Why girls should ballroom dance

Girls

Ballroom dancing is a form of sport and art that engages girls in developing themselves in various aspects. Children grow up in a fantastic physical shape, developing strength in elongated muscles, gaining the entire body’s flexibility, building up an overall endurance and stamina, increased range of motion in the body, and coordination, balance, and a strong posture. However, dance touches on much more than just the physical aspect of healthy development. Ballroom dancing transforms each young girl into a genuine young lady of femininity, kindness, care, and beauty that radiates from the inside out. Dancing with a partner opens up a world of connection to others and care towards others by working in a team. Girls will begin understanding the importance of taking care of themselves in terms of their physical appearance, communication, the way they walk, how they present themselves with movements and gestures, and how they act regarding those around them. Every parent and guardian wants their girl to respect themselves, honestly and genuinely – to know their actual worth.

The interests of each student comes first

Training Structure

Ballroom Dance Lessons for Teens

Our DSS Youth Programs are structured by The Art of DanceSport Training System.

 

When first signing up your child, you will decide what path of training and what level of intensity you would like for your child to engage in. After selection, we will then explain the method of training that will correspond to your preference for the best benefits for your child and their progress, essentially a personalized training plan.

 

Each child will progress through our proficiency levels, regardless of whether they will participate in the competitions. In addition, they will go through milestones and achieve goals that will indicate their progress in training.

 

Each student will also have the ability to decide whether or not they would like to participate in competitions throughout the United States and internationally as part of the DSS team. If choosing to train as a DSS athlete, each child will have a program designed uniquely to suit all aspects of physical, technical, artistic, and mental preparation with DSS Group Classes and Training Camps. In addition, individual lessons with DSS coaches will be assigned throughout the program.
