Dancing Shows are the new trend on the social media and television. From Dancing with the Stars to Dirty Dancing, dancing is dominating the world of reality television. However, it is a very commonly known fact that dancing helps to keep your body well toned and fit. So, here are a few reasons why you should be getting in your dancing shoes and shaking your body to the rhythm of music!
Improves the flexibility:
Dancing improves the overall flexibility of the body and also reduces stiffness. Practicing simple ballet exercises and stretches is recommended in the initial stages of dancing. It not only increases your flexibility, but also helps to ease the joint pain and soreness.
Boosts your memory:
Dance not only tranquilizes you, but allows you to age gracefully. Dancing has been proved to not only boost the memory, but also prevents the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Recent research has suggested that dancing reverses the volume loss in the hippocampus, which has been associated with the memory control.
Decreases the stress:
Feeling stressed lately? Grab your dancing partner, turn up the volume and go dancing! A latest research study has found that dancing with a partner reduces the stress and provides mental relaxation.
No more depression:
Dancing boosts up your spirit and decreases the symptoms of depression amongst people suffering from chronic or acute depression. People indulging in dancing are known to show fewer depressive symptoms as compared to their counterparts.
Maintains your heart health:
Dancing is a crucial habit for people suffering from cardiovascular diseases. People who are prone to suffer from heart failure are known to show an improved heart health, breathing as well as quality of life upon indulging in dancing. Dance is even more effective than biking or walking on your treadmill.
Lose Your Body Weight:
Nothing needs to be said about this. Are you bored with walking or riding your bicycle? If so, dancing has proved to be just as helpful as losing weight or increasing your body’s energy index as cycling or jogging.
Increases Your Energy Index:
Dancing helps you to get up and go for almost every situation. A recent study has just found that a weekly dance class has helped it’s participants to improve and enhance their physical performance and increase their energy level.
Bond and make more friends:
A dance class is a perfect setting in order to make friends and to increase your social circle. Dance helps you to maintain positive relationships and engage socially with different people. This helps to reduce the stress level and helps you to strengthen your immune system.
