The Amazing benefits of Dancing!!

Not that long ago, people used to dance together, for celebrations, for healing, for community. Modern science is validating what those ancient cultures knew instinctively, that social dance is good for us, not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well.

  • Social dance classes twice a week offers the most protection against developing Alzheimer's, and improves not only memory but also multi-tasking abilities, important for activities such as driving.
  • Dance lessons twice a week significantly reduces pain for Fibryomyalgia patients and increases quality of life and body image.
  • Dance therapy has been found to reduce ADHD symptoms in young boys and depression in teenage girls.
  • The cross-lateral element of dance improves reading rates in young children.
  • Unlike current popular dance fitness styles, Ballroom Dance is low impact, so you can dance until the day you die, without needing knee replacements.

The benefits of Helen's Dance classes!

Helen will offer good basic practical advice on etiquette- how to ask for a dance, how to dance with your mother-in-law etc.

You will learn to feel the beat and move to the music with a little help from Helen!

Helen can offer some good practical tips not often available from dance instructors, eg. how to deal with unidentified Latin music or slow dancing.

Dance is fun. It builds muscle and burns calories. It can be intellectually challenging. You listen to lots of good music. You also make friends of both genders.

The idea here is about personal connection! You will learn to feel the beat and move to the music!
