Dance your way to good health

Need a fresh way to boost your fitness? Time to hit the dance floor

Dance your way to good health
Dancing is a feel-good way to improve your fitness, whatever style you choose.  Given the unique combination of physcial exercise, social interaction and mental concentration - all set to music - it's no wonder it has been found to help relieve stress, increase energy and improve strength and muscle tone.

Research into the benefits of dancing is starting to mount up - so choose your favourite style and see the changes yourself.

The benefits of dancing are:

1. Strength

Dancing builds strength by forcing the muscles to resist against a dancer's own body weight, while jumping and leaping require tremendous strength of the major leg muscles.

2. Endurance

Over time, you will develop endurance. Building up your endurance allows you to dance for longer, with less chance of becoming breathless or tired.

3. Flexibility

Flexibility is a major part of being healthy. Most dance classes begin with a warm-up that includes a set of stretches.

4. Wellbeing

Dancing is social - not only will you make new friends, but you'll learn to work as a team with your partner or group. Dancing is a fun filled way to keep fit and boost your self confidence.

And if you want to try dancing but you're still a little apprehensive, why not try going with a friend or some of these other great tips for becoming a dancer!
