Intimacy in dance

Rediscover intimacy through dance with your partner

Intimacy in dance

We hear time and time again about different ways to reconnect with your partner through intimacy, and while many of them are great, sometimes they’re a bit too forward for some couples to jump onto straight away. What they need is almost like a bridging course to more traditional relationship rekindling tactics… and dance is the perfect bridging course in our opinion.

The great thing about dance is that, due to the wide range of styles available, it can be as intimate or platonic as you need it to be. There’s no need to jump straight into the sensual world of Latin and Salsa dancing if you’re not ready when you can reconnect with your partner through a more casual, fun style of dance such as Swing.

Swing dancing is fun, high energy and is popular among platonic friends and those without permanent dancing partners, as there is no need to get any more intimate that hand holding while your partner swings you around the room to classic 1950’s jazz and pop tunes.

If you’re looking for something a little more intimate, that isn’t too racy, why not consider the waltz or fox trot? These partner dances are a little slower, a little closer and a little more sensual than swing, without the hip movements of the tango or cha cha that may intimidate some.

Of course, it doesn’t matter what style of dance you choose, as all styles have the ability to help rekindle romance, or even just increased intimacy with your partner. There are several reasons for this. The first is the increased endorphins that exercise creates, which can improve mental health and overall happiness. The happier you and your partner are, the easier you may find communicating your needs. You may even find yourself in a fit of giggles when one trips up over a dance step and while we don’t need to say it, we will: laughter really is the best medicine.

You’ll also find that having something in common, such as a weekly dance class, can help you enjoy your time together better, as you put any troubles aside for an hour or so to engage in something that is purely for the enjoyment of both dance and each other’s company. We believe dance is so enjoyable, you’ll be wishing you’d picked it up years earlier.

Finally, there are studies that suggest dance can improve your confidence and it is often confidence that is lacking in one or both halves of a relationship that can cause its breakdown.

So if you’re looking for a way to recreate those early days of intense passion, or just find something that you can do together, as a couple, why not consider joining us at Arthur Murray? Your first lesson is free, so really – you have nothing to lose!


Both my wife and I are extremely happy learning ballroom dancing at Crows Nest Arthur Murray Studio. We have found the dancing instructors to be professional, knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. We are more than happy to continue enjoying our dancing experience and social activities with all the other students. We feel like part of a large joyous dancing family.John & Marilynread more

We were interested in learning Tango for our daughter's wedding last year, but here we are in our second year at AM, Crows Nest - dancing has now become our passion, due in large part, to the excellence of teaching and supportive atmosphere of this studio! The journey is long and I so envy the folks who have started years ago to achieve the beauty and grace of ballroom and the seduction of Latin dancing. We are determined to continue !!!read more

We started dancing in 2009 for our wedding - and had so much fun learning that we kept it up. They have incredible flexibility to do as much as you want, on your schedule, and consist of staff that appreciate busy working (and family!) lives --- while encouraging you to always improve yourselves! As a couple learning they have accommodated both our learning styles very well.read more

I have loved dance all of my life but the Arthur Murray Crows Nest experience has taken my love and learning to another level. I have been dancing here for 14 years and will continue until my body gives up. My lessons are so much fun, challenging in a good way and a great form of exercise. Add to that the social side, great people, parties, outings, local and overseas competitions and you have the ultimate hobby.read more
