Dancing for Fitness Offers Physical and Mental Benefits


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/12/2013 -- Walking, running, and kickboxing are fantastic exercises to improve cardiovascular fitness. But a treadmill, an open path, or weighted punching bags aren’t always needed to get your heart pumping. Sometimes all you need is an open space, the right music, and your two (possibly left) feet.

A 2003 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found ballroom dancing twice a week improved memory and made patients less likely to develop dementia. Further research showed that Alzheimer’s patients were able to recall memories when presented with music and dance moves from their younger years. The AARP released a statement in 2005 encouraging dance as a form of cardiovascular exercise for people of all ages, stating that the ability to vary the intensity and physical exertion made it a fun an exciting exercise that improved coordination and cognition at the same time.

Aside from the benefits of improved memory and cognitive function, dance is a fantastic cardio workout for anyone who can step touch. Zumba and hip hop classes are popping up across the nation, making it very easy to find a workout that’s fun, engaging, and healthy for your heart. Dancing also promotes socialization with friends and other peers, which can help reduce stress and ease depression. Increased energy and better balance are also things the body develops should you chose to add a new swing to your two-step.
