WHY DANCE IS A FANTASTIC ACTIVITY FOR ADULTS - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views


Dance classes are super popular with kids and teens, but there are so many great benefits for adults to dance as well! If you’re looking for a way to keep fit and reconnect with your sense of joy, joining a dance class could be just what you need to kickstart your journey.

“As a business owner and mother of three, I find it hard to fit in cardio sessions (especially because I don’t enjoy running),” explained local adult dancer Kathryn Steinhardt.

“But adult dance sessions later in the evening give me the cardio in an enjoyable way that I can fit into my schedule. There’s no pressure to be perfect; just move, get your heart rate up and time flies by.”

Here are a few reasons why dance classes are great for adults.

Feel-good fitness
Dance is a great alternative or addition to the gym. Moving to the beat gives you a fantastic feeling of strength, joy and fun!

Variety of movement
If you want to work every muscle in your body, dance is a brilliant option. The variety of movement will challenge your body in new ways.

You’re not aiming for the stars
As an adult dancer, there’s no pressure to perform, pass an exam, or dream of becoming a Rockette. You can turn up to class and just enjoy your time.

It’s good for your brain
Dancers are constantly changing the wiring in their brains by learning new steps and choreography. According to researchers in Brazil, dancing strengthens the activity between both cerebral hemispheres.

It’s empowering
Whether fast and furious or delicate and controlled, dance moves give the dancer a real sense of strength and ‘owning it’ on the dance floor!

Stress less
The opportunity to express yourself physically is also a great outlet to blow off steam and rebalance emotions.
