Health Benefits of Ballroom Dancing

Dancing is a wonderful physical and social activity that can improve your fitness and health, lift your spirits, reduce stress, and offer a fun experience, all at the same time! It is a perfect combination of physical and low-impact aerobic activity, range of motion exercise, social interaction, and mental stimulation.
Regardless of your age and ability level, dancing will help you to improve your health, flexibility, muscle tone, mental outlook, social life, and enjoyment of leisure.
