Bad habits are hard to break. For every person with perfect attendance, there’s the person that has three alarms, with snooze. People form bad habits under stressful situations and often have difficulty getting out of those habits. One of the hardest ones to break is smoking. In most locations, smoking is becoming prohibited, making it hard to feel a part of a social setting. But there are ways to help kick that habit, and one way is through dance. Below are three tips on how Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area funnest, friendliest dance studio, can help someone quit smoking, and why it will work, through ballroom dance (

1. Exercise is key in helping break unhealthy habits: The American College of Chest Physicians ( has stated that smokers who use nicotine gum or skin patches were more likely to stay off tobacco if they also did regular exercise–like dancing-–compared to people who just had the therapy but no exercise. Dancing allows the smoker to become more in tune with their body and feel the effects of physical improvement from the exercise, all while having fun.

2. Following an exercise regimen encourages the smoker to develop new, healthier habits: Smokers that dance will want that increased endurance and enhanced circulation that quitting smoking provides. Unlike other forms of exercise, ballroom dance also provides a perfect opportunity for setting specific learning goals. This works as a strong incentive to keep pursuing dance and get better at it, which in turn also means consistent, heart-healthy exercise.

3. Dancing can provide a community that a smoker can lean on: When a dancer of any level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced) comes to Dance Pizazz, they become a part of the dance community.
