For one, dancing is a great way to meet others, especially at our local dance studio. It’s a low-pressure atmosphere and you’ll be among folks with a common goal – learning to dance. An enhanced social life is a mood-elevator, causing the brain to generate endorphins. Endorphins create that happy feeling and help battle depression and fight stress.
Dancing and dance lessons are great not only for the body, but for the mind. The body benefits from the physical work, and in the more energetic dances can burn up to 10 calories a minute. Put in half an hour on the dance floor doing the mambo and it’s a workout! Get your cardio conditioning on the dance floor, while also improving your balance and flexibility through dance.
Learning dance steps also engages the brain by giving it new patterns to master, which helps keep you sharp and on top of your game.
