Human beings, like you and I, have been dancing in celebration and supplication for centuries. The earliest records of dancing were found in Egypt and India at around 3300 BC. Therefore, it is very important to bear in mind that dancing is well rooted in human bones. In synonymous with walking and staring at the sea, dancing works as a route to wellness because it feels so NATURAL. It’s another activity that requires no special equipment. You don’t necessarily need to have a partner. You don’t even need to have music playing around you, as you can provide such by yourself and enjoy it better.
However, the health benefits of dancing are well documented and they include the following: increased aerobic fitness, better flexibility and improved muscle tone. There are psychological benefits too which include greater self-confidence and self-esteem. Meanwhile, dancing is very good for brain development. It increases levels of serotonin, the happy hormone. It may also help to foster the development of new neural connections too.
According to recent study by researchers at the Albert Einstein college of medicine in USA, which investigated the effects of a number of leisure activities on dementia (a disease that affects memory and thinking) risk in the elderly. They studied 11 kinds of physical activity including cycling, tennis and golf. But the only activity found to lower dementia risk was DANCING. It’s also believed that the unique combination of physical effort with mental concentration and social interaction gives dancing its preventative health benefits.
