Learning to dance as a couple is often a trying experience. Sometimes neither partner knows how to dance. This puts them on the same level, but doesn't help with bruised toes. Other times, one person is an accomplished dancer and wants their partner to enjoy this activity with them. No matter what their level of competence, patience and a sense of humor are necessary when they take dance lessons together. As long as each partner tries, both will have fun learning everything from basic steps to advanced dips and lifts.

Couples that have long enjoyed dancing together will occasionally take dance classes. They may do this to explore a new dance style. They may wish to broaden their horizons on the dance floor. They may know how to salsa and waltz, but have never tried swing music. It takes two daring partners to expand their dance knowledge, but it can be a fun experience for both of them. If they have been together for a few years, they do have the advantage of understanding how their partner moves.

There are times when a couple does not do well when they take lessons together. One person may learn quicker than the other. This can lead to frustration. The more advanced person may ask their partner to take private lessons. This is a way to help level out their abilities without hurting each others' feelings. If the less advanced partner can overcome their hurdles, they can then enjoy many nights on the dance floor.

Many couples love to hit the dance floor for a night of fun. When one partner learns to dance better for their significant other, it is a way to show how important the relationship is to them. When all is said and done, the couple has an activity they can enjoy together. If both excel at dancing, they can have many nights of fun with their own footwork.
