Cheek to Cheek Choreography

TV Show reflecting America's love for Dance

Shows like "So You Think You Can Dance?" and "Dancing With the Stars" have shown an increase in dancing in the United States.  USA Dance, Inc. is a nonprofit dance organization that reported a 35% rise in the number of people taking ballroom dance lessons and attending ballroom events!  35% is huge considering how many people that equates to.  


One of the things that Mary Murphy (a frequent judge on "So You Think You Can Dance?" and studio owner) is attributing to the jump in dancing participants is the need for physical and social interaction in todays society.  Her theory is that people just NEED that connection these days with so much of our lives lived online.  She works with elementary aged children and she claims that although they often fight it, within a short amount of time, their teachers claim to see a drastic improvement in their school work and behavior! 


Just goes to show you how good dancing is for you at any age! Even if you're a child or an adult who is just looking for some fun excersie.  Just one of the many reasons we love dancing here at Cheek to Cheek Choreography!
