Dance Pizazz knows the benefits of ballroom dance, to include how it can actually help ease stress levels and relax on and off the dance floor.

Exercise is key in helping manage stress and ballroom dance is no exception. According to an article in the Seattle Times (, exercising and stress management are part of a body's way into goo health. Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area's funnest, friendliest dance studio (, knows the importance of being able to enjoy downtime and achieve a true relaxed state… especially after a good workout. Here are some ways in which a post-dance breather can help any dancer stay healthy:

  • Ballroom Dance can reduce the levels of stress hormones while stimulating the production of endorphins. These endorphins are responsible for post-workout feelings like optimism and relaxation. The more regular the exercise, the more endorphins are released to aid relaxation and regulate the body’s cycles.
  • Ballroom Dance can help deepen the mind-body connection: Mental stress is linked to physical symptoms such as muscle tension, cramping, and even lightheadedness. Dancing regularly, though, can bring about a deeper mind-body connection by reducing stress. This awareness is key to maintaining good overall health and keeping negative symptoms and even diseases at bay.
  • Ballroom Dance is a fun form of exercise: Because dancing is a stellar workout that is also fun, it allows the body to work many muscle groups in a rhythmic and repetitive fashion. This increases stamina and strength, which are certainly not symptoms of the overstressed.

Dance Pizazz is proud to help dancers of all levels achieve balance on and off the dance floor. What better way to both exercise and promote relaxation than while listening to good music? Check out to see how others have reduced their stress to become stronger, happier dancers.
