Dancing is a great way to not only build your confidence, but also help you reach a weight loss goal or tone your physique. If you’ve ever watched Maks, Val, or Tony on “Dancing with the Stars,” you witnessed how celebrity contestants lost weight while learning to dance on the show. It is because ballroom dancing happens to be a great way to exercise and stay in shape. No dance experience is necessary. Our fitness dance class is designed for all levels of dance and fitness.
Get in Shape and Lose Weight
Ballroom dancing is one of the most fun ways to exercise and get in shape. It is a great way to lose weight, maintain a strong core, improve balance and coordination, strengthen bones, build lean muscle, and more. Using your own body for resistance makes it safe and easy!
Fountain of Youth
Nothing brings us back to the joys of childhood more than dancing and prancing to our favorite songs. We can perfect your moves to any rhythm so you can move to every song on the soundtrack of your life.
Increase Energy Levels, Elevate Your Mood, Boost Immune System
Dancing is a proven way to raise your endorphin levels, which are responsible for alleviating pain, improving overall well-being, and enhancing immune response. In short, it makes you feel great and get sick less often!
Improve Posture and Relieve Pain
Maintaining proper posture, such as the one used in dancing, strengthens the joints, tendons, and supporting muscles. It also helps prevent loss of minerals in bones. Doctors recommend regular ballroom dancing for osteoporosis, arthritis, and other debilitating conditions.
Increase Flexibility and Mobility
Ballroom dancing increases the amount of synovial fluid around the joints. This greatly improves mobility. Continuous stretching through dance will strengthen and lengthen your muscles, therefore making you more flexible. This helps prevent many injuries. Make sure to stay hydrated!
Accelerate Recovery From Injury
Doctors recommend light weight-bearing exercises to help strengthen the bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and tissue surrounding the injured area. Many Dance With Me students have recovered from hip replacement, spine surgery, and other injuries in a fraction of the recovery time suggested by their doctors. Just read the stories on our blog!
Social Benefits and Skills
Body Language is the Only Language
80% of all communication is non-verbal. We judge people by how they move and carry themselves. Developing full control of your body can help you send the right message and attract the right attention.
