Dance: the Perfect Gift for All Ages

This time of year is filled with goals to spend meaningful time with our family and friends, take care of ourselves with rest and physical activity, and prepare for the year ahead. It’s incredible and beneficial and brings you fulfillment, but…. It’s a lot, right? Both mentally and financially at times.

Well, what if we said that you could achieve all of that, in only one hour each week?

It sounds a bit like a scam, we know, but stay with us. We’re not proposing some cheat way to life, but, instead, a foundation to start you off on a journey towards sustainable balance

So how might one do this? One word: DANCE.

Dance is the perfect way to fill all of your cups. You can spend time with your friends and family by inviting them along, making you all gain the benefits of social physical activity, which include fostering deeper connections (and laughing, you’ll laugh a lot in our dance classes, dancing with your loved ones, friends and new friends!). It is also suitable for all ages, so everyone from your children to your grandparents can do it. No one gets left out! 

You are simultaneously taking care of yourself, with dance reducing stress and keeping you physically fit. Plus, if you start dancing now, you’ll have started a habit that makes it easier to stick to in the new year. 

So, how does dancing look financially? And why bring up this topic before Christmas?

Well, depending on your options of local dance classes, you’ll find that dancing can be cheaper than going to a gym per week, and is a lot more ethical. Here at UCan2, we offer a free intro class, so you don’t even have to pay, or commit to a full course, to try out a dance class! Perhaps these holidays you can find a similar offer near you and take your family or a friend or two, trying out this way of spending time together before you financially commit to it.

But what do you do if you and your loved ones fall in love with dancing together?

Enter: Christmas!

If you loved dancing together, the best gift you can get your friends and family is a voucher for more classes! Actually, even if you’ve yet to test a class out, this is still a great gift for everyone to look forward to in the new year. Any new experience will be filled with anticipation prior, and you can all spend Christmas day discussing how you think the classes will go, who will be the best or who may improve the most. When a gift is spending time together, you can’t lose. 

This leads us into our offer. Christmas Gift Vouchers for a dance class, a private lesson, or a specific dollar value, are the perfect gift for all ages, because you're giving an EXPERIENCE that they'll love!

PLUS, we’ve already mentioned our free intro class, which is held on particular nights throughout the year, so they could try a class first, then use their voucher to go towards a course, a private lesson, or whatever they want! For 2024 our free intro nights are:

Dance classes are available in almost any area around the world, so look around to see your local dance studio’s offerings and prices. Some studios offer mixed-aged classes, so all of your loved ones can have fun together, or split children and adults, so you can gain the benefits of meeting new people as your confidence increases. Dance classes as gifts this Christmas will be an amazing surprise for anyone you give them to, and help you create memories to share forever. Plus, who doesn’t love a fun activity that’s productive in disguise?
