Studies have shown that dancing reduces the risk of dementia, falls and other age-related issues. Check out these websites for some great information on why dancing is so important to our mental as well as physical health:
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.
The idea here is about personal connection! You will learn to feel the beat and move to the music!
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.
