Want More Confidence? Learn To Dance

Arthur Murray Dance Studios of Central New Jersey

Dance is a great avenue to learn how to be more confident. Learning to dance requires you to put yourself in a situation where you may feel silly, have to introduce yourself to a new person, or learn to do something you and your body are wholly unfamiliar with. Through dance you have the opportunity to overcome these challenges everyday and grow from the experience. Here are four ways that dance can help you become the confident person you’ve always wanted to be:

1. Improved communication skills:
Not only does partner dancing gives you the opportunity to meet and get to know many different dance partners at parties and group classes, but dance also gives you an entirely different language to communicate with; body language. The ability to have a meaningful connection with anyone without even saying a word (excepting “may I have this dance” perhaps) helps you become more confident in your own skin. Confident body language will have you feeling free to meet new people wherever you go.

2. Fake it till you make it:
Many people think that you already have to have confidence to get up and dance in front of others. In reality, dance is about performing or expressing confidence that you may not actually feel (at first). By practicing exuding confidence when you dance, not only will your dancing improve, but so will your mood and confidence in yourself in any situation.

3. Better self-image:
Dancing is, of course, a great form of exercise and can help you feel and look healthier. But dance can also change how you think of yourself and what you think you’re capable of. Never thought of yourself as graceful or powerful? After a few months of practice creating strong and beautiful lines or learning how to be light on your feet, you’ll be able to trust your body more. Moving gracefully and powerfully will become second nature, and eventually you will start to own it.

If you feel you struggle with expressing yourself through drawing, writing, or speaking, dance may be a good outlet for you. Dance is an empathetic activity–meaning we, as humans, express and understand emotion through movement. Dance lets you move to music you connect with, lets you forget your responsibilities and stresses, and allows you to discover new things about yourself. Learning to dance can set you free to be the person you’ve dreamed of becoming by developing your own style of movement. By focusing on dancing in a way that’s true to you, you will start to be confident as the person you are.

Dance to let the best version of you shine!

Roxanne & Ben were invaluable in helping prep us for our wedding. What a fun and rewarding crash course in the art of the box step and twirl.

Ben and Roxanne are both such fun, skilled instructors! My fiancé and I had a four lesson “crash course” with them during which they helped us get ready for the first dance at our wedding. We haven’t had our wedding yet, but we feel so much more confident for the big day after learning the dance they choreographed for our song! We can’t wait to refine it and have a blast.

This place is really sweet. The instructors are all very knowledgeable, kind, and fun! You can tell they really put effort into building a sense of community and non judgement. A refreshing experience to be a part of the little Arthur Murray family for a while while I lived in this part of town. Highly recommend for anyone like me that doesn’t have any experience and wants to give it a go in a welcoming place with folks of all skill levels 👍.

Had our dance lessons here for our wedding. I went in not being able to keep a beat and with no dance knowledge. After just 2 months of classes I felt confident during mine and my wife’s first dance. We worked closest with Ben and he was excellent. Every time we got to work with Bob and Roxanne their enthusiasm rubbed off on us and we had a great time.

Arthur Murray/ An unforgettable Memory, Sooseon Kim “Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance.” Hi. This is Susan Kim. I’m from Seoul, Korea. I want to share a very special experience I had during last summer. I was so lucky to join the ballroom dance classes for 2 weeks at Arthur Murray (Franchised Dance Centers), located in Highland Park, NJ After the first free lesson and consultation with the instructor, Ben, I instantly decided to register Arthur Murray and spend my time & energy on Ballroom dancing. Ben recommended me to choose ‘Starter Program Package’. At that time, I only had two weeks left before going back to Korea. He explained to me, “It would be great to experience as many as possible in various ways. Starter Program consists of Individual Lesson, Group Lesson and Practice Session. How was it? It was an absolutely awesome experience. All the teachers and staff were kind, friendly and gorgeous. Also, the atmosphere of the studio was very comfortable and convenient for the sake of students. Needless to say, Ben was a very gentle, professional and confident teacher. I instantly figured out how extremely well-qualified he was. I was amazed by not only his elaborate teaching skills but also his endless patience with his students.^^ Actually, I never expected that there was a decent dance studio near my place, New Brunswick. I only searched several dance centers in Manhattan and gave up easily due to an inconvenient location. That’s why I was so excited to find out Arthur Murray in Highland Park. “Exposure & Repetition” these two key words that Ben emphasized to me every time. Those two words are still kept in my mind.

We have loved our classes at Arthur Murray! My husband and I have always wanted to be able to dance at weddings and now we can and do! We enjoyed our beginners program so much that we signed up for the next level as a 30th anniversary present to ourselves. The teachers are all wonderful and so are our fellow students. Highly recommend!
