With the leaves starting to change colors and the air getting a bit cooler, many people are looking for a new indoor activity to start this fall. Ballroom dancing is the perfect activity for both individuals and couples. Dance Pizazz notes that dancing not only helps people get in shape, but can be a fun date time activity for couples.
Owner Nikki McElvian notes, "One of the great things about ballroom dancing is that anyone can partake. Ballroom dancing is easy and fun to learn. It can be practiced anywhere, is great exercise and offers social benefits. Dancing requires connecting with a partner which helps individuals build self-esteem for any future social setting or career."
McElvain continues, "Some of the demanding styles of dance, such as the elegant waltz, the energetic swing, or the sexy salsa, fully utilize the core muscular structure of the body more than other common forms of exercise, which helps students reach their fitness goals."
Livestrong.com offers additional information related to the health benefits of dancing such as:
~ Ballroom dancing helps tone and strengthen the muscles in the calves, thighs and buttocks. Specific ballroom dance moves work these muscles differently than more familiar exercises, such as walking, jogging or cycling, do.
~ Any regular exercise performed continuously for 30 to 40 minutes three or four times a week will help condition ones cardiovascular system, strengthen heart muscles and can lower cholesterol and blood pressure. It will also increase lung capacity and general stamina.
~ Dancing is a weight-bearing exercise, so it helps maintain bone density and prevent osteoporosis. It can also help rehabilitate the knees after surgery, as it's lower impact than jogging or aerobics.
Dance Pizazz can help anyone who wants to have fun this fall while getting in shape.
