According to Everyday Health, the benefits of dancing include overall fitness, memory boosting, stress reduction and improved flexibility.
To make these health benefits accessible for people of all ages, husband and wife and author duo Mark and Helena Greathouse have created “Dancing for Fun,” a collection of folk-inspired, contemporary group dances accompanied by originally composed music.
This beginner level book contains music and choreography with detailed directions and links to YouTube videos displaying the dances, demonstrated by one member of the group, so that individuals of any age and ability can take part in the fun while achieving an active lifestyle.
The inspiration for “Dancing for Fun” came as no surprise to Mark and Helena. When professional musician and composer Mark Greathouse needed to put his music to dance, he looked no further than his accomplished wife to transcribe the choreography. With her many years of experience as a rhythmic gymnastics advanced level competitor, professional coach and international judge, Helena Greathouse was the perfect choice to compliment Mark’s music.
By taking part in these dances individuals will not only learn a new skill, but they will also be exposed to the social and health benefits associated with group dance.
“This book will teach you how much fun it is to dance in a group to melodic music,” Mark and Helena said, “You will feel healthier and happier as soon as you begin.”
The duo’s combined experience has led to a truly beautiful and imaginative compilation of music and dances appropriate for individuals of all ages and ability.
