Health and Fitness Advantages
Ballroom dancing has been shown to slow the aging process significantly. Dancing strengthens the cardiovascular system and builds muscles, alleviating or preventing disorders such as arthritis and osteoporosis. If you are prone to sprains or breaks because of an athletic career or bone disease such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, ballroom dancing can keep your body in top condition during the off-season and prevent future injuries. Depending on intensity and duration, a dance session can burn up to 10 calories a minute and will improve blood circulation.
Dancing, especially ballroom dancing, challenges your memory. Ballroom dancers must remember intricate steps and patterns quickly, while maintaining proper balance and spatial distance. People who participate in ballroom dancing can easily improve their memory. This helps stave off conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s. It also helps younger people who need to remember complex information for school or work.
As our world becomes more technologically driven, it’s easier to communicate with people over long distances. Despite this, many people report feeling isolated and depressed on a regular basis. Ballroom dancing is naturally social and encourages participants to get out, meet people with similar interests, and move while socializing. This keeps the body feeling and acting young while reducing the isolation common to so many of today’s computer-based jobs.
Ballroom dancing is a great activity for people with no interest in traditional athletics, social anxiety, or low self-esteem. For example, children entering middle and high school may struggle with these feelings because “popular” children have torn them down. Ballroom dancing increases confidence without the inherent pressure of team sports or the unstructured socialization of parties and school dances.
As dancers learn something new together, they will relax easily, accepting their weaknesses and capitalizing on their strengths. Contact us today to learn what a great activity ballroom dancing can be for you.
