In terms of your physical health dancing can help to build up muscle groups as it is an activity like swimming that can use all muscle groups that are available. In particular these tend to be the leg and core stomach muscles. Dancing as exercise is great for those individual who are perhaps embarking on a fitness program after years of being sedentary or those people who find traditional exercise challenging or boring. It also helps with your lung function and the absorption of oxygen and can help improve your circulation.

There are many different styles of dancing available that you can try if you are looking for formal classes, such as ballet, tap, ballroom, street and salsa. Or you can simply develop your own dancing style whilst making the most of the nightclub environment.

When it comes to your mental health most people are well aware of the link between exercise and wellbeing and an improvement in conditions such as anxiety and depression. This is due to the fact that it can be helpful in burning off some of the cortisol and adrenaline that traditionally causes anxiety and stress feelings as well as producing more good hormones and chemicals in the brain such as serotonin and dopamine which are both classed as feel good hormones.

Dancing is such a popular pastime that many new fitness programs are having an element of dance within the system. This includes activities that include disco style dance events where you can dress in your comfortable clothes and attend a group session where you dance away to some of the latest tunes and exercise without feeling like you have been stuck down the gym for two hours. The time flies past in classes like this.

If you are looking for a fun and effective way to exercise, perhaps lose a few pounds or tone up areas of your body then look out for some dance style programs or just pop along to your local nightclub and dance the night away with your friends in style.
