Why We Do It:

If you haven't already realised, we're more than just a little bit obsessed with dancing - and for good reasons. There are countless life benefits to learning to dance.⁣ Treat you mind, body and soul and keep dancing get those physical, mental and social benefits! ⁣

MIND

Did you know ballroom dance is one of the most productive activities to improve brain and mental health?

Dance is a great way to lift mood and ease anxiety. It's also a fun activity that sharpens the mind and creates social bonds.

Modern science shows that dancing is not only instinctual, it’s also a way to stay healthier and happier at every stage of life. ⁣

 

BODY

No matter which type of dance you choose, with regular lessons and activity, you can expect to derive some tangible physical and mental health benefits.⁣

 Not only is dance a great workout, it is good for your heart, it makes you stronger, and it can help with balance and coordination. Plus, you'll be having so much fun that it won't even feel like a workout!

SPIRIT

Dance requires participants to focus on balance, movement, grace, posture, controls, agility, coordination, flexibility, syncopation, rhythm, and memorisation - all in time to the music. These complex and joyful activities appear to combine in ways that create and extend good physical and mental health and mind-body connection well into our lives.⁣
