Dancing has always been one of the best ways of physical self-expression. It is a fun way to let your body take the lead and move to the music. If you are thinking about taking dance classes and wondering if it is worth it or not, then here are 4 reasons you will surely sign up for dancing:


 


Great Way to Exercise and Reduce Weight


Some people are not cut out for the gym. Working out on machines can be boring and more like a chore. Dancing, on the other hand, keeps you on your toes (literally) and gives you the physical activity that your body needs. It is fun and exciting to be able to learn different steps that come together poetically in motion. So if you want to ditch the cardio machines, just sign up for a dance class that you will enjoy. The best part is that time will fly by so fast, and you will end up coming back for more. Why do you think classes like Zumba are so popular? It is because they help people lose weight in a fun and engaging way.


 


Increases Endurance


Dancing improves and increases your endurance because the entire body is in full motion. It builds up stamina, when your heart rate rises and your muscles stretch. When you dance, you use parts of your body that you hardly use. If you dance on a regular basis, you will notice that your stamina to dance for longer periods has increased and you don’t get tired easily anymore.


 


Boosts Memory


Studies show that aerobics exercises boost your memory and prevent brain-related diseases such as dementia because when the body is physically active, it releases endorphins that are beneficial for the neurons. Dancing and aerobic activities can help reverse the volume loss in the hippocampus, the part of the brain that is responsible for memory and physical activities.


Reduces Stress


If you are suffering from stress and anxiety, then put your dancing shoes on and move to the rhythm because dancing greatly improves stress.  When you are dancing, cortisol (stress hormone) is combated by the release of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter responsible for bringing feelings of joy. Studies have shown that people who took regular dance lessons had lower levels of stress and anxiety.
