  1. Personally, I think this post should be called, “Top 10 Reasons Everyone Should Learn to Dance.” There are so many benefits to knowing how to dance with a partner really well. These reasons for learning how to lindy hop could also apply to blues dancing. I speak of blues dancing because I have more experience with it. Knowing how to blues dance really well is a major confidence booster, especially when you’re dancing with someone who also knows how to blues dance. Like lindy hop, it’s a great social activity that helps you to get out of your head. I don’t know about the lindy scene, but there are some really great people in the blues dance social circle. It seems like being part of most any dance social scene is a great way to make friends.

  2. Indeed; both scenes are great ways to make friends. Around Boston, there’s actually a fair bit of overlap between the swing and blues dance scenes. Most of the reasons in this blog post could definitely apply to dancing in general, not just swing dancing/lindy hop. I’ve found both forms of dance to be very useful at concerts, parties, all sorts of social settings. 🙂
