Last year was a blur of lockdowns and stay-at-home orders. As things open up, many of us are looking for safe and fun ways to meet people and engage with our community. To help, Fuse is hosting its very own Learn to Dance Night on Saturday, October 23, 2021.
So, how can dancing help? Here are the top 4 reasons why dancing is good for you:
We all know how important movement is for our health – both for the brain and body. A study in The New England Journal of Medicine found that dancing strengthens your brain and prevents you from developing dementia and other neurological disorders as you get older. It also strengthens your muscles, decreases blood pressure, and relieves stress, among other great benefits! What better way to jump-start your health after a year-long hiatus?
Dancing is a great ice-breaker and allows you to meet new people and make friends during classes. Humans are social animals and thrive when socially engaged; however, having been at home for a while, it’s natural to feel alone and anxious about interaction. Attending a dance class is the perfect opportunity to break through that!
Dancing Your Blues Away
Research published in The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition found that attending regular dance classes could help improve physical performance and energy levels! Other than the endorphins - our feel-good hormones - released due to exercise, social interactions during dance classes may also play a vital role in lightening your mood.
Working Out, AND having Fun
Dancing is a great way to get your workout in – all while having fun! Not only does it improve your cardiovascular health, but it’s also great for increasing your bone density and strengthening your muscles. With so many different types of dances out there, it’s a great option no matter how old you are.
As you can see, dancing is a great way to express yourself and get healthier. If you have had the opportunity to attend a dance class before, you know how invigorating and fun they can be! If not – grab a friend and come find out for yourself! To find out more about our beginner-friendly event and RSVP, click here.
