St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
As the summer comes to a close, many have geared up for the start of school, work -or both!- for themselves and for family members. This combination of undeniable stressors can bring about a wide range of mental and physical issues. A lack of a proper artistic outlet for anyone who’s just trying to keep up in today’s world (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/11/artistic-expression-sparks-individuality_n_3574173.html), can actually intensify the effects of stress on the body.
That’s why Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area funnest, friendliest dance studio, is eager to share four tips on how ballroom dance can serve as an ideal form of expression. As a proven stress-buster, the artistic element in dancing can help anyone:
1. Unleash a new skill-set. Having an artistic outlet one can be proud of challenges the brain in a positive way. Because ballroom dance helps dancers of any level (beginner, intermediate, and advanced) develop a sense of musicality through movement, a series of neurological processes take place that enable artistic expression that builds upon itself.
2. Enhance verbal and non-verbal communication. The enhancement of these skills has been directly linked to improved ability in navigating through a variety of social situations. Developing an eased demeanor through dance as a form of expression can considerably improve confidence and relieve social anxiety, thus reducing stress.
3. Express themselves as they exercise. Let’s face it: not everyone has the time or resources to write, paint, practice playing an instrument, etc. Ballroom dance can serve a dual purpose as it serves as a mode of expression and is excellent exercise. In other words, dancing can serve as a one-stop shop for physical activity and artistic expression for those who value their time.
4. Love others better. That’s right: art can help an individual be a more loving and caring person. Many studies have documented the need for all to feel validated and cared for; this is why ballroom dance has been known to bring friends, couples, and families together. Not only is everyone releasing their stress, but they learn to express their appreciation of one another through dancing etiquette and the improvement of communication skills.
Many can attest that a good dance lesson will leave the body relaxed, release feel-good endorphins, and can help bring perspective to a busy lifestyle. Dance as a form of expression is ideal for anyone whose life is constantly on the go but wants to be a more fulfilled and balanced individual and family member.
