Finding the perfect gift for that person on your list who already has everything can be a challenge. Fred Astaire Dance Studios encourages shoppers to consider giving the gift of dance this holiday season.
Dancing provides solace to the soul during this unprecedented time. The mental health of many Americans is suffering during the pandemic. People are feeling fear and sadness for lost loved ones, while others experience increases of stress and anxiety owing to economic insecurity, fear of falling ill, and increased responsibilities on the homefront, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. While recent reports of the development of a vaccine to help mitigate the virus provide a light at the end of the tunnel, spiking COVID-19 numbers remain worrisome for many Americans. Experts anticipate the holiday season will be a difficult time for people and require families to develop new traditions to keep the magic of the holidays alive.
Dancing Makes People Smile
Fred Astaire Dance Studios encourages you to ditch the traditional fruit cake or sweater and gift your loved one with the healing and transformative power of dance. All of the Fred Astaire Dance Studios offer gift certificates for dance lessons. It’s an easy gift to give and will provide a memorable experience for that special someone on your Christmas list. Dancing helps boost cognitive performance and can help reduce the symptoms related to depression and anxiety, decrease stress, and bolster self-esteem, according to Healthline, an online health resource.
