Who’s the Better Dancer?

Who’s the better dancer? All too often couples who come into the studio already think they know the answer to this question. However, they are not always right. We have a few facts up our sleeve to debunk this common idea that many people already think they know who’s the better dancer.

Common Scenario for Couples Coming to the Studio for the First Time

Here’s a little scenario we actually see pretty frequently. A couple walks in the door of our Lake Mary studio, and the first words out of the husband’s mouth is, “My wife is the better dancer.”

Now we hear this quite often when couples come into the studio…

Time to Debunk the Better Dancer Myth

It’s time we debunk the myth of, who really is a better dancer when new couples come to the studio.

While it might be your wife or you who is the better dancer, everyone needs a dance partner to shine. They can’t do it on their own.

3 Myths of Who Is the Better Dancer

Let’s start out with the third myth and work our way down, shall we?

1. Ballroom Dancing is Overly Difficult

While it’s true that ballroom dancing can take time and practice, it’s not too difficult for most people to learn. In fact, when you learn just a few basic moves, you’ll be able to quickly learn how to perform many different ballroom styles. As a gentleman, learning to lead your lady is really what makes her a good dancer. She needs you to help her shine.

So, take a few steps on the dance floor. The basics are the foundation of any great dance! You’ll be dancing before you know it!

2. You Aren’t Coordinated Enough To Ballroom Dance

You might be thinking to yourself, “I have no rhythm, and I have two left feet.”

That is actually good news! One of the things we specialize in here at Arthur Murry is helping you find your right foot! (Ha, bet you laughed at that.)

In all honesty, most people are surprised at how coordinated they are once they start dancing. You will, with time and practice, find your natural rhythm in your dancing. Plus, a bonus of dancing is that you become more coordinated.

3. She’s Got The Better Moves

In ballroom dancing, you each have your own specialized role. In a ballroom lesson, it is referred to as ‘Lead and Follow.’ The fact that your wife is a good dancer strengthens your dynamics.

You (husband) are the lead. Your job is to show off your wife, who is the follower. This is a good thing because it takes the spotlight off of you, allowing you to focus on your responsibility of keeping the attention on her.

Basically, with her ‘better moves’ she makes you look good!
