Why dancing is good for you!

Dancing is one of the most enjoyable ways to get moving. As well as lifting your spirits, itĀ also has some major health benefits.

The NHS website says “Regular dancing is great for losing weight, maintaining strong bones, improving posture and muscle strength, increasing balance and co-ordination, and beating stress.”

Dancing:

  • is fun
  • a cardio workout
  • socialable
  • it keeps your brain sharp
  • it’s gentle on your body because you move in a variety of ways and you can slow down or speed up to suit yourself
  • anyone can do it
  • it can improve your balance
  • you don’t need a lot of equipment

So while you’re having fun moving to music and meeting new people, you’re getting all the health benefits of a good workout.
