  • Dancing is a great all-round cardio workout.
  • Dancing is fun in the way a monotonous treadmill run probably never will be.

  • Anyone can dance. "It's about you moving your body in your way not like the rest of the people in the class."
  • It can keep your brain sharp. According to one study, getting footloose on a regular basis is linked with a 76 % reduction in dementia risk.
  • It's gentle on the body. Dancing is more free, allowing you to adjust the tempo when your body needs a break.
