Dance attracts people from all different backgrounds and industries. Interacting with your fellow students of dance cannot only increase your social network, but it can open up career and job opportunities as well.

Aside from externally expanding yourself, interacting in the dance world can help your internal self to blossom. No matter how shy you might be in real life, you can be free and open in the dance world. Many people transform when they walk onto the dance floor; it's a safe place to explore being a more outgoing and confident person.

People often feel they have permission to be more outgoing and expressive in the dance setting. I mean, let's face it, we do steps with funny names like "boto fogo," "tipple chasse," twinkles," "wings," "the chase," and we all love it because it's fun! As adults, it can often be difficult to let loose during the work day. We have, in many respects, lost the element of "play," but dancing can often reintroduce that aspect into our lives.

So why not put yourself out there? Introduce yourself to someone that you haven't seen or met before. Maybe you'll meet your new life-partner or best friend? Or your new boss? Or a new employee? Or a great new business partner? These things and more have all happened as results of introductions on the dance floor.

So what are you waiting for? Say hi to someone new at the next Practice Party. You never know what amazing opportunities may arise from that simple hello.
