Health benefits of dancing

Dance has always been a part of human culture, rituals and celebrations. Today, most dancing is about recreation and self-expression, although it can also be done as a competitive activity, for performing experience or to pursue a career professionally from a young age. Dancing is a really enjoyable way to be more physically active and stay fit, and has become such a popular form of exercise for both children and adults.

Dancing for people of all ages, shapes and sizes. It has a wide range of physical and mental benefits including:

  • improved condition of your heart and lungs
  • improved muscle tone and strength
  • better coordination, agility and flexibility
  • increased aerobic fitness
  • improved balance and spatial awareness
  • increased physical confidence
  • improved mental functioning and memory retention
  • improved general and psychological wellbeing
  • greater self-confidence and self-esteem
  • better social skills and meeting new people that share your interests

Attending a class at any age can be daunting, and sometimes the fear or worry can be enough to put you off trying.

At RESiDANCE Studios, one of our main priorities is ensuring the participant – no matter what age – feels welcome, at ease and has fun.

General tips for dancing

If you are thinking of taking up dancing, suggestions include:

  • See your doctor for a check-up before attending class if you have a medical condition, injury or you are not used to an active lifestyle
  • Make your teacher aware at the start of the lesson if you have any injuries or medical conditions. You will be asked to register and fill out some forms before you start which you can also download and bring with you. Click here to download them.
  • Wear layers of clothing that you can take off as your body warms up.
  • Drink plenty of water before, during and after dancing.
  • If you are unsure of an exercise or movement during the class don’t be afraid to ask a question or ask the teacher to show it again, feel free to sit/stand and watch new dance moves first. Learning new moves increases your risk of injury.
  • Don’t push yourself too far or too fast, especially if you are a beginner.
