5 reasons why you must dance more often
- Dancing helps you lose weight.
- Regular dancing helps to balance body.
- Dancing gives you correct posture.
If drum beats playing across four streets from your house get your foot tapping, then today is your day. If movies like ABCD or Step Up series can set your mood for a little groove. Yes, that’s right! People who treat dance as an integral part of their lives must be aware of the health benefits of it.
Here we are mentioning a few of them, take a look:
Dancing knows no boundaries
Dancing is a learned art and not an innate one. Even if you aren’t a dancer, you can always learn to be one. And, if that wasn’t enough to convince you, we are going to tell you about some amazing health benefits associated with dancing that will turn on the heat and force you to try some twists and turns. So, read on and dust off your dancing shoes for a refreshing and groovy session.
If things like `boring’ and `tiresome’ hit your head each time someone mentions activities like aerobics, then here is a pleasant shocker: Dancing is also a form of aerobics. Do you know what that means? That just like any other form of aerobics, dancing can also increase your heart and breathing rate. And it can thus help you lose as much weight as any other form of exercise that can be done. So, why not add some entertainment to your boring exercise regime?
Balance and coordination
You don’t have to worry about choosing a form of dancing that helps to improve balance and coordination. All dance forms can sync your body, though some can work better than others. For instance, Argentinean Tango involves a lot of twisting, kicking and rotating, which forces the body to grow balance so that you don’t lose your step.
If dancing professionals are to be believed, then dancing works on your muscles and fibers that control posture. These muscles are located around the spine and contract while dancing, helping you maintain good posture.
Dancing is one of the best forms of exercise to tone muscles in the legs and glutes. Also, if you dance regularly you will notice your hips, lower back and abdomen toning up.
