BENEFITS OF DANCE
When you hear your favorite song, do you tap your foot or bob your head to the beat? There is something about moving to the sound of music that seems to take all your cares away. The benefits of dance are endless, regardless of your age or physical ability—dance truly transcends all boundaries.
Dancing is the most fun way to exercise and lose weight. It makes for a great cardio workout, burns fat and boosts your metabolism.
Balance & Strength
Dance incorporates movement on all planes of motion and from all directions.
The more you dance, the greater your range of motion and flexibility.
As you dance, you use your own body weight for resistance, as you engage your core and whole body in every move.
Good posture is extremely important when it comes to your physical health. As you dance, you move around your spine and lengthen your body, strengthening your back and your core. Many things we do in life leads to poor posture; working in front of a computer, pushing a grocery cart, driving a car, riding a bike—you get the idea.
Memory Enhancing aka Brain Food
Dance involves both mental effort and social interaction. This type of stimulation helps reduce the risk of dementia. When you’re learning new dance steps, you’re exercising your body and your brain.
Few activities are as joyful and uplifting as dance. It’s an escape from your daily routine, a chance to relax and relieve stress and concentrate on yourself. Moving your body to the beat of the music instantaneously puts you in a positive mood.
Dancing leads to high self-esteem, increased self-confidence and a more positive outlook.
Ballroom dancing brings people together and naturally introduces you to a sea of people who may potentially share common interests.
Give it a try—you have so much to gain! Come alone or with a partner. Learn something new, have fun, make new friends and enjoy the benefits of dance.
