Dancing gives us plenty of room for self-expression and can be powerful in helping the body and mind to be stimulated. It’s all about movement and music and you. This is one thing everyone agrees about: Dance is beneficial. It’s exercising without “feeling” like you’re exercising, it increases cardiovascular and mental health, releasing endorphins while you turn, spin, and simply MOVE. Unfortunately, in our “modernized” society, we have lost touch with its potential. In contrast, dance has always been an integral part of many other cultures. You don’t have to dance with an African tribe around a roaring fire to realize the healing benefits of dance; luckily, all you need is yourself. Here are seven reasons why you should consider dancing:

Get In Shape

It helps you get in shape, dancing for longer periods at adequate intensity is the same as working out. Unconscious exercise? Isn’t that the best?

Stress Reduction

Not many things relieve stress better than dancing.

Sleep Better

It uses up extra energy, although for some people. exercise may hyperstimulate the system into insomnia. Everybody is different, so find your sweet spot with this one.

Bone Density

It helps keep good levels of bone density – very important as you age.

Reduce Depression

Dancing is good for one’s mental health. People who are battling depression may find that dancing gives them an outlet and feel a sense of accomplishment. The other point is to do with endorphins, which is also stimulated by exercise.

Motor Skills

Dancing can help you improve your concentration and memory, while making you more disciplined. It also helps you improve your balance and stamina.

Social Life

If you feel like boosting your social life, dancing is something you can consider.

Remember, you’re not forcing your body to move according to someone else’s steps; to truly dance is to just tune in to your own personal radio station, and move according to the rhythm of your soul. Dance slow, dance fast, dance solo, dance with others, dance with joy, even dance the sorrow out of your heart. There are no rules — just DANCE!
