New Year, New Resolutions, New Goals New Adventures = New You. Whether you used to dance, have never danced, or are a pro, here are three great reasons to dance it out this year. Take a class to hold yourself accountable or just rock out at home. Dance has benefits for everyone!
Get healthy! - Dance is a gateway to health. If you take a class, you’re increasing muscle tone, flexibility, and committing to stick to it. Even if you just commit to 5 minutes of dancing at home every day, you’ll increase your cardiac health and your endurance. Regardless of venue, moving your body helps you produce endorphins, improving your overall mood and the likelihood that you’ll keep moving in the days to come.
Give your brain a boost! - Taking a dance class is a great way to keep your mental capacities sharp. Dance combines patterning, coordination, and problem solving to keep you on your toes.
Give stress the boot! - Life is stressful, especially these days. Dance takes your body from tight to loose, relieving your physical tension. Dance also distracts your brain from the exterior stressors that are bringing you down. Most importantly, dance releases all the happy chemicals in our bodies helping to change our mood long after we’ve stopped moving for the day and will even help you get a good night’s sleep.
Dance creates a happy body and a happy brain so get moving!
