Here are 10 things that you will gain from learning to dance.
So, if you dance, you …:
- MAKE NEW FRIENDS
Meeting new people is always fun even if you already have a lot of friends. Dancing is a truly social activity and it will introduce you to lots of new people from all different walks of life.
- BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE
You might be a little self-conscious when you first start learning to dance but the great thing is that in a dance class you are all in the same boat. Once you get to hang up some steps and you’ve taken a few tumbles – you will never feel self-conscious again.
- IMPROVE POSTURE
Dancing will show you how to hold yourself in a more upright position with a straight back and you will gain better control and coordination of your limbs. All this will show you in your everyday life as you find yourself walking with more elegance and poise.
- REDUCE STRESS
Dancing is a fantastic stress buster. You can literally lose yourself and dance as the music and rhythms take you over. It’s a superb and fun way to work off all the stress of the day and you will feel much calmer and relaxed after a night out dancing.
- REGULATE WEIGHT
Dancing is a great way to burn off the calories and keep trim. It’s a wonderful form of aerobic exercise that doesn’t get boring and dance is often recommended as a way for people to lose weight.
- INCREASE FLEXIBILITY
If you get a twinge when you reach up for something on the top shelf then it might be time to take up dancing to bring back the flexibility in your joints. You might ache a bit after the first few lessons but your joints will soon loosen up and you’ll find that doing many day-to-day tasks starts to become easier.
- BUILD STRONG MUSCLES
Dancing builds and tones your muscles in many different parts of your body. You don’t need to be throwing your partner over your head to benefit from dance either. Even the most graceful and gentle of dances will help to tone your body and keep you fit.
- INCREASE COORDINATION
It goes without saying that dance can help improve your coordination but you will be surprised at just how much dance teaches you how to coordinate your steps in our movements. But it will also help to improve your hand-eye coordination, too. As you learn to dance in tune with a partner.
- INCREASE STAMINA
Health benefits of dancing also include improved stamina and regular dance sessions will gradually get you wonderful results. It’s great to get yourself into the routine of exercising because you can start off easy and gradually work up as your proficiency in dancing increases along with your fitness levels.
- HAVE LOADS OF FUN
Dancing is a lot of fun and there aren’t many things that are this much fun and that do you good.
