1. Dance Improves Flexibility
Do not worry about already being flexible when thinking about if you or should not you join a dance class. The motion that you take on during the lesson will gradually boost your flexibility through suitable stretching exercises set by the teacher. “Warm ups” and”Cool downs” both involve gentle stretching exercises and combinations which improve your range of movement, so participate in a dance class within time will enable you to improve your flexibility.
Strength is built in dancing by forcing the muscles to resist against your own body weight. Hip hop, jazz, contemporary and ballet all involve leaping high into the air. In order to do these movements, it demands a lot of strength in the leg muscles.
Physical exercise like dance raises our endurance levels. When our muscles are needed to work hard for long periods of time our endurance levels improve and we are able to work longer and harder without feeling tired or fatigue. Dancing is very good for improving endurance, especially the allegro steps (jumps) in ballet, the constant combinations danced in tap and the fast paced routines enjoyed in hip hop and street designs. Regular dance will build your endurance levels.
4. A Sense of Well-Being
By joining a dancing class you may challenge and build on your social skills raising your self-confidence. Dance is also a means to reduce stress and stress levels. When we do an activity like dancing we feel an improved awareness of well-being, not only does your overall fitness improve but you also get your metabolism working better for you also. With most things at the touch of a button now it is very easy to become lazy and the less exercise we do, the less involved we believe we want to be in other areas of our lives. Through dance and music you will feel generally more uplifted in the mind and body which then gives us more energy.
Whether you are pirouetting across the floor into a classical masterpiece written by Tchaikovsky or doing”body rolls” in all directions possible to Rihanna, you are getting exercise and probably having a whole lot of fun at the same time. Dancing offers us so many advantages as discussed in this article, but not forgetting the extra cardiovascular conditioning, stronger bones and decent posture benefits also. Least important maybe, but nevertheless a pro to think about is that you don’t need to”feel the fear” of dancing at parties anymore. The truth is you might get the performer in you yet!
