This is the era of baby boomer, and what great news that is. Now, more than ever, anyone over 50 has many options to lead a happy and healthy lifestyle. One of the proven ways to improve health and ensure longevity is exercise.
Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area funnest, friendliest dance studio, knows this and also knows that ballroom dance is a stellar form of exercise for those who are young at heart. Because ballroom dance can be learned at any pace, it is the perfect alternative to other forms of exercise which can be hard on the joints.
Here are some other ways any baby boomer can stay happy and healthy through the joys of ballroom dancing through:
- Movement: Physical activity is directly linked with increased life expectancy. Ballroom dance offers an excellent opportunity to engage the cardiovascular system steadily and consistently. This means that a dancer, regardless of their skill level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced), will reap the incremental rewards on their health.
- Weight Control: Obesity is no joke and it has been linked to a host of life-altering diseases. Performing different types of exercise is a sure way to shed and keep the weight off. Because dancing engages the entire body - shaking to cha-cha one day, swaying to waltz another, or gently hopping to swing the next years of health are added to the dancer’s body.
- Having fun: Exercise can sometimes be a drag, but dancing is never dull. The surge and release of mood-boosters, coupled with other many physical benefits, make dancing enjoyable. It also makes the dancer more likely to stick to this form of exercise and therefore, extend their life.
Dance Pizazz is committed to helping any dancer improve their body’s quality of health and, therefore, quality of life through dance. Check out http://www.dance-pizazz.com to see how people from all walks of life have added years to their happy, healthy lives simply by dancing.
