Age and stress can change how we perceive ourselves when looking in the mirror. We are our own worst critics, but we all know staying active helps reduce stress and eases the aches and pains that each birthday so generously gifts us.

Exercise releases endorphins which improve mental health and self-esteem. If you’re going to exercise, you want it to be fun and exciting! No one wants to spend their free time under a set of weights when they can be on the dance floor dancing away their stress and improving their health and self-esteem! Dancing is a fantastic way to shape your body and build the strength you’ve wanted. Dance away the pounds at Arthur Murray and gain back your confidence.

Shine like the person we all know you are. Be as creative with your dance style as you want to be. Break out of your shell, welcome the confidence hidden inside, and show everyone around your true colors. We have no doubt everyone will be just as excited as you are!


6. Face Your Fears

Trying something new can be scary. You’re definitely not alone! Most first-time dancers admit they were nervous stepping onto the dance floor for the first time. However, they quickly tossed their fears away while discovering something new about themselves.
