Benefits of Dance

Dance can enhance your life in a number of ways!


Dance is an amazing way to get in shape and stay in shape. While you’re learning new steps and having a great time, you’ll be getting a standard cardio-vascular workout. Depending on how long you dance and how vigorously, you can burn anywhere between 250 calories to 700 calories an hour! Can you imagine? All while you are having the time of your life!

Body Image

Aside from aiding in weight loss, dance also improves bodily appearance by training you in proper posture and essentially lengthening your limbs to produce a more graceful figure. However, most importantly, dance is proven to build confidence and give you more positive feelings about your body and appearance. You will hold your head higher knowing that you can create art with your body on the dance floor.

Increased Mobility

Dancers are more flexible and have more stamina than those who do not dance. Practicing dance can help you to complete everyday tasks quicker and more effortlessly. Imagine waking up without a stiff back or picking something up off the ground without any hesitation. Dance can help to make those everyday pains a little easier.
