Dance Pizazz knows that dancing can dramatically improve anyone’s posture…and physical health.

Everyone knows the type: the “hoverer.” They hover over their laptops, food, books… In a world where everything is defined by deadlines, it may seem inevitable to not hover over the tools that will help accomplish the needed tasks. This constant hovering can lead to a host of issues with posture ( that can bring with it neck and back pain and weaken the immune system, just to name a few consequences.

Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area’s funnest, friendliest dance studio, (, has seen its share of hoverers and has helped them approach their posture issues with amazing results. Here are three reasons why having good posture is vital to a body’s health, and how ballroom dance can help.

1. Bad posture = neck and back pain. A host of muscle imbalance issues brought on by hovering can bring the dreaded back neck and pain monsters, which have been proven costly to many a blue and white collar worker. As a form of exercise, dancing takes a holistic approach to engaging the entire core through continuous movement, enhanced flexibility, and maintained balance.

2. Bad posture = gut problems. It’s been proven time and time again: slouching can literally fold up the gastrointestinal system in ways that affect overall stomach health. Because dancing requires a straight, yet relaxed posture, gastrointestinal health and balance can be achieved in no time and many issues -such as acid reflux- can be considerably alleviated just by standing and sitting up straight.

3. Bad posture = zapped energy. Hovering places many organs in an improper posture, which makes the cardiovascular, respiratory, and immune systems -just to name a few- work harder than necessary. This effort to make vital systems function takes away energy from other processes; thusly, the effect is that a tired body is an unhappy and unhealthy body. As a form of exercise, ballroom dance can actively address this energy lag through movement and maintained good posture.

Dance Pizazz recognizes the importance of good posture’s role in promoting a healthy body, on and off the dance floor. Why not start improving both health and lifestyle through the joy of ballroom dance today? Stay tuned to for the second part of Dance Pizazz’s tips on how to improve posture.
