Because dancing feels like fun, it beats out other exercise
you're less likely to stick to, offering benefits like:
Heart Protection:
Italian researchers
found that heart attack
patients who took up
waltzing improved
their breathing and
heart health more than
those who took up
cycling or walking
Brain Protection:
In one study, test
subjects who danced
at least three days a
week were
significantly less
likely to develop
dementia, likely due
to increased blood
flow to the brain.
Mood boosting!
A British team found
that depressed
patients who took
salsa lessons saw far
greater mood
improvements that
those who didn't
dance.
