As we go through life’s journey, it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day routine and lose that spark that brought you and your partner together. While date nights at the movies or dinner are nice, they often lack opportunities for real connection. If you’re looking to reignite the flame and bond on a deeper level with your loved one, consider taking a dance class together. But before we go further take a look at this video, which was filmed after a High heels/Lap dance Halloween class “Dance Dates” – a project of Brinn Nicole which aims to get partners closer through music and the art of movement:

I understand that lap dance classes may not be the most appropriate choice for some couples, however I believe that it’s a great option that would definitely add some spicy emotional romance to any relationship. If you have a chance to attend this type of “date night workshops”, just do it. Obviously every couple should consider taking other partner dance classes for this purpose as well, such as more traditional bachata, salsa or tango lessons. If you feel the same way, keep reading.

Dancing encourages partnership, communication, and synchronized movement, it’s especially true with partner dancing – it’s right in the name after all. Unlike sitting across from each other at a restaurant, dancing literally joins you together as you coordinate your steps. You make eye contact, read each other’s body language, and respond intuitively. This promotes greater intimacy as you get attuned to each other’s subtle cues.

PLUS, it’s far from boring, even if it’s just salsa instead of lap dance. Learning new steps takes concentration, so you’re focused entirely on the present moment together. This brings a thrilling sense of adventure to your relationship. Whether you’re mastering the basics of waltz or laughing through an attempt at high heels, dance provides novelty and excitement.

Another perk? Dancing is great exercise! You’ll get those endorphins flowing as you move to fun, dynamic music. This is a date that engages your minds and bodies. Feel the beat, break a sweat, and come alive in each other’s arms. It creates a euphoric feeling you can’t get sitting still.

Consider taking a progression of dance classes, starting with beginner levels and working your way up. Moving through the curriculum together gives a feeling of accomplishment in addition to energizing your bond. You’ll also meet other couples which enhances your social life. Forming friendships with those who share your interests is rewarding.

Dance also has the power to break down walls and reveal new dimensions of your partner’s personality that you don’t get to see in day-to-day life. Seeing the way someone moves can provide intriguing insight into who they are. The shy, quiet guy at the office may turn out to be a totally uninhibited dancer once he hits the dance floor. It brings out a different side of people.

Here are some dance styles to try with your partner:

  • Salsa – This fiery Latin dance will unleash your inner passion and confidence. The fast footwork is intricate but manageable even for novices.
  • Waltz – Elegant and romantic, waltz encourages graceful movements to melodic music. It’s a great pick for formal events like weddings.
  • Tango – Dramatic poses and close embraces characterize this seductive dance. Channel your inner thespian and get transported.
  • Kizomba – Sensual vibes to the modern beats, kizomba has become really popular among couples and singles lately, you’ll be able to find classes pretty much in every big city around the world.
  • Bachata – Everyone knows about bachata this days, easy for beginners, gradually developing into something really sensual and romantic.
  • Others like zouk, west coast swing, forro, etc.

I have been teaching couples to dance for a several years now and I have to say that it may not work for every couple, but if you don’t try it you’ll never know. No matter your personalities, there’s a style suited for you. If you didn’t like for some reason your first experience, simply try changing the style or dance studio. Dancing offers an artistic outlet to express yourself while nurturing intimacy in your relationship. Escape the mundane and let loose on the dancefloor. Moving as one to beautiful music is food for the soul.

When life gets dull, be bold – take a dance class date! Jaunt over to that studio near your place this weekend. Trying new things together leads to growth. One step, two step, rock step – just like that you’ll be closer than before. This is an investment in lifelong passion, laughter, and memories. If you’re brave enough to attend high heels partner-work class like the one in our today’s video, well… you’re about to experience something special.
