The Dancing Feeling: Why Ballroom Dance Should Be Your Next Hobby

By Elisha Neubauer

When it comes to picking out a new hobby, one activity you should never rule out is dancing. The Dancing Feeling, a full-service ballroom studio located in Warwick, Rhode Island, wants you to be aware of the benefits of taking up dancing, whether socially or competitively.

Dancing keeps you active and youthful, while at the same time offering an opportunity to meet new people and socialize in the process. At The Dancing Feeling, they've been teaching Ballroom dancing to both active adults and kids for over thirty-three years. With a convenient location, close to TF Green Airport, they provide a state of the art facility and high-quality, professional staff.

"There is plenty of room to dance on our state of the art sprung floor," states Kathy St Jean, Co-Director of The Dancing Feeling. "It's good for those knees and the rest of you!" Although the flooring is quite a perk, St Jean implies it's not the biggest draw to the studio. "Most importantly The Dancing Feeling has an exceptional professional staff of instructors who are patient, kind and love to teach people to dance!"

Aside from the physical pluses that come from participating in Ballroom dancing, there are other features that have kept this age-old practice in popular culture. According to St Jean, the social culture of the art form brings the most people into the mix. "Ballroom dancing is so much fun," she affirms.

"Most people take a combination of private lessons, group lessons and attend the social dances!" When asked which form of Ballroom is the most popular, she couldn't really narrow it down. "That depends on each individual," St Jean explains. "All the dances are exciting from Tango to Two Step to Salsa to Rumba...and the list goes on!"

One of the best things about participating in Ballroom dancing is that it completely flexible. You're able to select the dances, classes, and frequencies that work best for you and what you aim to get out of the experience. "Lessons are very affordable," St Jean tells us. "You decide what works for you. You also decide whether you want to just take lessons to enjoy social dancing or whether you want to take it to the next step and dance in showcases or competitions!"
