What do the worlds of psychology and ballroom have in common, you may ask?
They both help to improve and deepen our relationship with self and others, psychology perhaps more consciously, but in the world of ballroom there is a growing awareness of consciousness applied in dancing. Perhaps we can refer to this as Dance-Intelligence.

We believe that the emotional, mental and physical stability of each partner contributes to the overall success of the couple.

Keeping dancers connected in their relationships and motivated in their work is enormously beneficial to their mental health and dance performance.
