Dance Pizazz wants to share the benefits ballroom dance can have for the mind-body connection.

The findings are being touted everywhere ( Exercise is key in helping any body enhance its wellness and improve its connection with the mind. Ballroom dance is an excellent form of exercise and has helped numerous people achieve balance and deepen their own mind-body connection. This is not about dogma; it’s about being aware of what the body wants and needs by learning to pay attention.

Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area's funnest, friendliest dance studio (, wants to share some ways ballroom dance can help in the development and deepening of self-awareness through exercise:

  •     Ballroom dance readily and exponentially improves hand-eye coordination. By practicing dance moves that involve the entire body, the brain becomes more spatially aware. Even those with two left feet have been able to find their rhythm and get on the dance floor, all through ballroom dance’s goal-oriented learning style.
  •     Ballroom dance makes the body breathe. It is no news that dancing is a stellar form of cardiovascular exercise, but it also requires strength and balance. The dancer’s body must therefore “breathe”; in other words—as a dancer dances—the body is using oxygen more effectively and efficiently, which means an improvement in all of its systems and functions.
  •     Ballroom dance is a chance to reconnect with the self. Dancing knocks out several goals all at once: it is exercise for the body through movement and for the mind through learning. It is also a fun activity, which improves mood through the release of positive endorphins. It can be a time when it’s all about the individual dancer, or the only time per week that a couple does something solely for them. The benefits are manifold, making the time dancing well-spent.

Dance Pizazz is proud of its dancers and the positive life changes that take place on and off the dance floor. Go to to see how many have deepened their mind connection through the joy of ballroom dance.
