The stereotypical image of a dancer would be the following: extremely fit, tall, long limbs, so thin that they do not have an ounce of fat in their body, flexible, and incredibly attractive. If this were true, the dance floor would be a very empty place. The true face of a dancer is as follows:
- There is no age requirement. Toddlers dance, and 90+ individuals dance! Doctor’s are now finding that dancing is an excellent way to fight off Alzheimer’s and Dementia. It is also a fabulous way for children to learn self-confidence, discipline, and human connection.
- Unlike many rides at amusement parks, there is no height requirement. Yes, you dance with a partner, and matching them perfectly in height is of no real concern. Ladies it is okay to be tall, and gentleman it is okay to be shorter.
- It does not matter how attractive you are to anyone else. A dance is just a dance many times. Plus, beauty really is in the eye of the beholder! Gentleman, women find men who dance as attractive. Ladies, men find those of you that are willing to follow and get out there attractive. It is funny how sometimes just being on the dance floor can heighten your attractiveness!
- You do NOT need to be a professional with x number of years of training and experience. It is more important that you get out there and try, then it is how much you are able to do in the dances you are dancing!
- YOU are the face of a dancer. Everyone should dance. Anyone can dance. If you choose to dance, then you are now the face of a dancer!
