Health Benefits of Ballroom Dancing

by Diane Liakos, M.P.H, M.S.

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! It is a perfect combination of physical and low-impact aerobic activity, range of motion exercise, social interaction, and mental stimulation.

Ballroom dancing: 

  • Helps to reduce your risk of chronic diseases like cancer, cardiovascular (heart) and cerebrovascular (brain) disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and depression.
  • Helps slow the progression of osteoporosis and reduce the risk of falls and fractures.
  • Enhances blood circulation throughout your body. 
  • Strengthens your immune system and your resistance. 
  • Raises your metabolic rate, which helps you burn calories faster and lose unnecessary pounds. 
  • Improves your muscle tone, strength, and endurance.
  • Improves your coordination and balance, to prevent accidents and falls.
  • Increases self- esteem and makes you happy to be alive.
  • Improves your concentration and ability to focus.
  • Provides mental stimulation and improved oxygenated blood flow.
  • Improves your memory and may help to reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Is a “sport” you can engage in throughout your life, with beautiful music, moderate aerobic activity, and social interaction 

"If you have any preexisting health or medical concerns, always consult with your personal physician before beginning any new physical activity."
