Does dancing improve you as a human being? For most of us, I’d say yes.
Learning to dance offers unique opportunities no other activity can provide. If you choose to take advantage of those opportunities, you can kick a whole lot more ass in life.
What would it mean to kick more ass in your life? It could mean that you learn more quickly. It could mean that you have more energy for the things you want to do. It could mean that you adapt to change and bounce back more easily from stress.
It could also mean you connect better with people. Or that you’re more confident and less socially anxious.
But there are no guarantees. Becoming a better person is not something that is automatically awarded to you by virtue of taking dance classes, or by busting out your collection of six moves on the dance floor every night.
If you want a zero-effort method to improving your life, look elsewhere (and perhaps adjust your attitude).
If you want a fun method that requires some patience and hard work, you can’t beat dancing. Especially social dancing, which can fascinate you for years.
