Planning a first date is a bit nerve-wracking for many people who want to make a good impression on their date and plan an unforgettable night. One way to secure a phenomenal date is with a dance. Whether you take your date to the local swing dance club, set soft music and dance in the kitchen, or otherwise plan a romantic night of dancing, there’s no better way to spend the evening. Here are six great reasons why you shouldn’t plan an evening anywhere other than dancing.
1- If Your Date can Dance…
Let’s go ahead and get this one out of the way. It is, after all, one of the biggest reasons to take your partner out on the dance floor! In case you haven’t heard, they say that people who have all the moves on the dance floor also know how to move it in the bedroom. No, sex isn’t a deal-breaker in a relationship if it isn’t all that and a bag of chips, but who’s to complain about a partner who knows how to satisfy them with all the right moves in the bed? If your partner can work it on the dance floor, likely the same holds true in the sack! Take it from Shakira, and trust that the hips don’t lie.
2- Learn More About Your Date
As the Top 10 blasts over the speaker, you’ll see your date with high energy and in great spirits. When the music slows down, holding your date gently near you feels your body with trembles. In each opportunity, dancing provides the chance to get to know your date a little bit better. As you dance amongst the crowd and with one another, you’ll learn more about their musical tastes, how they move, what makes them laugh and smile, and more. Dancing provides a great opportunity to get to know your date and have a good time!
3- Avoid Small Talk
Sometimes, first dates lead to small talk when both people are shy and uncomfortable. Or, perhaps a game of 20 questions is the gist of the first date. It is very awkward for many people to try to establish conversation with someone they don’t know over a five-course dinner or other setting, but while on the dance floor, you can learn more about one another without the awkward moments in between.
4- Express Yourself
Dancing is a form of expression, and people who feel comfortable on the dance floor are oftentimes more outgoing and outspoken than others. If those qualities are desirable in a mate, knowing they can bust a move on the dance floor is imperative. A dancing date-night is certainly in order to better understand the ways that your partner (or potential partner) expresses themselves.
5- Dancing is Fun
Nothing is more satisfying than dancing for many people. Numerous studies indicate that dancing improves the mood, increasing serotonin levels to make you happier. Furthermore, when you’re on the dance floor with your date, you’ll enjoy each other’s company far more!
6- Let’s Get Physical
Dancing is a great form of exercise, so while you’re out on date night shaking your groove thing, you’ll also sweat off some calories, and maybe even take off a pound or two in the process. Staying active is a great way to stay heart-healthy, keep the pounds off, and dancing certainly provides the get-up-and move activity that keeps you at your best.
It is time to go dancing and live the night away! The next time you want to plan a perfect date, include dancing on the agenda, and you’ll have a night to remember.
