From a business standpoint, the benefits of developing an engaging and dynamic culture are great. Dance is one of the most effective forms of entertainment in maintaining the social fabric of a community. And as we’ve all learned, more social interactions equals more people, more choices, and higher social welfare.
Another way of thinking about it is that dance teaches kids a lot about how to handle themselves. They are taught how to listen to adults, when to say no, and not to take life too seriously. In turn, they’re taught respect from adults. In particular, the kids learn that they should show respect to everyone, regardless of their rank, as adults do when interacting with kids. This teaches respect and humility to the person receiving the respectful response.
So, when you find yourself in a situation you’re unsure of, you have more options: If dancing is what you’re good at, than just dance. If it’s difficult for you as a guy or a girl, then maybe don’t come to the dance. If you have time, or if your group can’t make it, go. You may find yourself at the party instead of the dance floor and your friends are probably wondering if you ever felt so nervous about what you were doing as to get your friends to watch for you or if you’re not good at dance. Maybe you’re in a situation you wish you didn’t have to be there, but it’s not going to change.
And if you’re looking for a life-changing relationship? Then dance is the best choice. So get out there and get moving.
But what about the music itself?
Well, dance music has gotten a bad rap. I’ve heard the arguments for why it’s not good for our nervous systems or that it’s more stressful than dance music today. However, there’s little evidence to support these claims. In fact, there appears to be no physiological differences or differences in how people respond to it, if you listen carefully. In fact, it’s clear that the dance experience is just as stimulating, relaxing, and joyful and satisfying as a more traditional musical experience.
And there are other reasons why dance music is more enjoyable than music today. For one, it’s shorter. Whereas an album or a mix would likely only last 20 minutes, a dance song can be two or three minutes or more, at times with only ten minutes of music! So you can get a lot more out of dance music than a more conventional mix, no matter
