Health benefits of Ballroom Dancing
Falls Church, VA. The viewing rate of the reality TV show, “Dancing With The Stars” continues to grow strongly.
The obesity rate in America continues to rise alarmingly.
Put the two together, and the answer is simple; dance for your fitness and well-being!
Benefits of Ballroom Dancing are numerous. If you know you need to add some physical activities to your life but hate the idea of working strenuously at a gym, dancing is a great way to get some exercise while having fun. In those graceful moves hide some serious cardiovascular workouts that raise your pulse and burn calories, aiding in weight loss. You will find yourself moving more gracefully even off the dance floor, improving metabolism, blood circulation, stamina, bone density, balance, flexibility, and posture.
Aside from its physical benefits, Ballroom Dancing is also good for your emotional and mental health.
Dancing, like other forms of exercise, releases Endorphins, feel-good chemicals, in your system. Also because Ballroom Dance also requires your focus on your coordinated movements, your partner, and music, it takes your thoughts off stress of your daily life. What attracts viewers to the popular ABC show, “Dancing with the Stars”? Celebrities, shimmering costumes, amazing dance routines, backstage dramas…. “And pure joy of dancing the participants discover as they train for the show,” adds Fabio Bonini, artistic director of Forever Dancing Ballroom in Falls Church.
Dancing vigorously to some great music enlivens your sense of self. Socializing with other dancers is relaxing and fun. “The greatest benefit of Ballroom Dancing may be connecting with oneself…” admits Bonini, “… teaching dance is very little about dance. It’s rather about people… who they are and who they want to be.”
In addition, several studies link Ballroom Dancing to prevention of Alzheimer’s disease because it involves all physical, cognitive, and social activities.
To support and celebrate the happy and healthy dancer in all, Forever Dancing Ballroom is celebrating its second year anniversary with a daytime Open House offering free classes in Ballroom Dance, Salsa, Argentine Tango, Aerial Silk, Flamenco, and Brazilian Dance, and an evening of dance party on Saturday, July 21, 2012. So why don’t you get dancing?
Forever Dancing Ballroom is located at 5818-B Seminary Road, Falls Church, Virginia, 22041. http://foreverdancing.com/
