Reported in SILive.com, “Dancing in each other’s arms is a proven path to rekindling the romance in any couple’s relationship,” says Kelly Gilmore, director of Fred Astaire Dance Studio.
“Inevitably, he says, at some point during the lesson he sees the chemistry between a couple he’s teaching, whether they are young and learning a routine for their wedding or have been together for decades.
“The spark of intimacy is suddenly ignited,” he remarks, “expressed with a certain smile, a laugh or a joke at the other’s expense, with a quick, little cuddle or kiss.”
For Joan and Tom Springstead of Eltingville, high school sweethearts who’ve been together since 1968, dancing has turned into a joint passion.
Gilmore observes that not only does “learning to dance together give couples that special one-on-one time together that is sorely missing in our busy lives,” it also “helps [to] strengthen skills of cooperation and communication, usually bringing out the best in a partnership.”
It requires team work and trust, a conversation exchanged through body language, holding one’s own while still navigating the space with a partner.
