I started ballroom dancing later in life. I was interested in learning to dance because I had read about studies that discussed the benefit of dancing for preventing dementia, which was a concern for me given my family history. While I found ballroom dancing met that goal by being both mentally challenging and rewarding, my enjoyment has far exceeded anything I expected when I started. Ballroom dancing is a fun form of physical exercise. By requiring me to focus on my dancing, partner and music when I am dancing, ballroom dancing serves as an excellent form of stress relief by giving me a welcome break from the hectic pace of everyday life. I have often called ballroom dancing my safe place when life becomes stressful. Most importantly, I have enjoyed the social benefits of ballroom dancing as I have met many wonderful people who have a positive outlook on life and are a pleasure to be around. The welcoming and helpful nature of ballroom dancers has provided me with many dance friends, which has greatly contributed to my love of ballroom dancing.
