Dancing is a brilliant way to get active because not only does it provide the heart-healthy benefits of an aerobic exercise, it's also a great way to engage in a social activity.

It's a spontaneous and highly enjoyable way to be healthy and offers a multitude of different health benefits, which include:

  • Reduced stress 
  • Increased energy 
  • Improved strength 
  • Increased muscle tone and coordination

What's more, it's been proven that dancing can:

  • Lower your risk of coronary heart disease 
  • Decrease blood pressure 
  • Help you manage your weight 
  • Strengthen the bones in your legs and hips

But, it's not just the health benefits which make dancing a great idea; it's also a fantastic way to encourage mental and emotional wellbeing... It's almost impossible to dance without smiling!

Plus, there's something for everyone: solo dances, partner dances and group dances in so many different styles. It's easy to learn or make up your own dance steps, it doesn't have to cost a thing; and can really increase your enjoyment of music.

The one thing to remember is that dancing is fun and anyone can join in!
