Like all forms of physical fitness, dance is an exceptional way to get healthy and stay healthy, whether you are 10 years old or 100. The physical and mental health benefits of dance are so numerous and exciting that we must share a few of them with you!
Reduce the Effects of Aging
Due to the variety of mental and physical aspects involved in dancing, it is a great tool for preventing the onset of disabilities and mental degradation as you age. A 2018 study conducted by Japanese scientists discovered that dancing was the form of exercise most strongly related to persistent health and mental vigor late into old age. Women who danced recreationally as a regular part of their routine remained active, independent, and mentally sharp throughout the course of the study and beyond. Truly incredible!
Improve Your Focus
One of the greatest benefits our students and co-workers cite regularly from dancing is the ability to better focus on all sorts of tasks, both physical and non-physical. The amount of coordination and control needed for dance is as much mental as it is physical. That mental training from dance carries over exceptionally well in many other aspects of life. Students from across the country have reported increased focus and ability to work efficiently at their jobs after just a few months of classes at Fred Astaire Dance Studios.
Build Trust and Intimacy
Dancing with a partner is a huge part of the overall dance experience. The trust and effort required for any dance partners to succeed in any dance style can also be incredibly effective in bringing people together as teammates, friends, and even romantic partners. Everyone at Fred Astaire Dance Studios loves the camaraderie that our classes create, and we are proud to know that by sharing the gift of dance, we can bring people closer to each other.
