Social Dance and Dating – a New Trend?

Those modern-day singles know all too well the difficulty of finding dates in our fast-paced world.  It seems people don’t have time to connect with others on a meaningful level, yet we still crave closeness.  A current trend in online dating has been finding friends first through resources like, a site that helps people find friends as much as significant others.  In the same vein is a larger service,, an umbrella site that culls from the best of the online dating sites.  I was contacted by an administrator on the site, who requested I mention their dance-specific page on this blog.

After a look at the site, I decided to post it in case anyone is interested.  It is a developing resource for aspiring social dancers and gives ideas about how to learn moves in dance styles from Swing to Salsa.  It also provides links to various dance retail outfitters.  I encourage people to send tips on good social dance schools in their locations, as the site could use a solid nationwide database for interested singles to search.

I just recently began ballroom dance lessons with my husband at The Dance Factory in Arlington, VA.  They are amazing instructors and I love learning with my husband.  I know it could be a great resource if I were single, too, as there are always single ladies and men in classes and at dances.  It is a great way to meet friends while keeping active and learning a new skill.
