Health Benefits

There is growing scientific evidence which supports enormous health benefits associated with dancing in a group, not just in night clubs. Recent studies have conclusively found that regular dancers have lower blood pressure, heart rate, weight, blood sugar level, the list goes on, and even raised pain tolerance. There are also evidence which show positive results in the treatment of dementia and Parkinson’s. Music-based therapy is now being used for supporting children with autism and ADHD. 

Relationship & Bonding

It also encouraged people to feel closer to others. When partners or families dance together, it goes without saying that they spend more time together. Spending extra time together in an engaging activity is a much than watching TV or staring at your phones. By sharing that time learning something fun together, you are able to reconnect and rekindle that closeness. 

Communication

Speaking of being on the same page, dancing can also improve you and your buddy’s communication. Dancing requires two or more people to move as one, and this requires a great degree of both verbal and nonverbal communication. You will be amazed at how easily these new communication skills translate to the world outside of the dance studio. Communication is vital to any healthy relationship, and being able to effectively communicate with each other can help you and your partner avoid a lot of problems down the road.
