Reasons to keep dancing:
Dancing leads to improved balance, coordination, proprioception and overall neuromuscular health, wellbeing and fitness levels. We also need to be aware of staying as fit & healthy as we can in order to combat covid.
Did you know that a recent study showed that partner dancing such as Ballroom & Salsa prevents the development of dementia by 76%!!
By continuing to dance past the age of 50, regular dance activity reduces the occurrence of a number of chronic conditions including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, obesity, osteoporosis and depression.
So we all know how much fun we can have in classes & clubs but the residual benefits are pretty huge!
