Why Dancing Lessons Are Great For All Ages

When I was a little girl, I fell in love with the performing arts. I sang favorite songs while taking baths, riding in cars, and playing with dolls. I frequently attempted to make music on a toy drum set, a keyboard, and the piano at my grandparents’ home. When I was seven-years-old, my parents signed me up for piano lessons. A few months later, I nervously performed in front of a packed audience at my first piano recital. At the age of 12, I sang for the first time in front of an audience at a Christmas program at my school. I couldn’t believe how much applause I got. Immediately, I knew I wanted the performing arts to always play an important role in my life. On this blog, I hope you will discover how engaging in the performing arts can enhance your life. Enjoy!

Why Dancing Lessons Are Great For All Ages

Dancing is often seen as a kids sport that many teenagers and young adults drop out of as they get older, and sadly for many people, this is true. However, that isn't always the case, and many adults are picking back up where they left off, for a variety of reasons. If you have been thinking about getting back into dance or trying your hand for the first time, then there are many benefits you should start seeing quite quickly. Here are three of the most obvious reasons why dancing lessons are great for people of all ages.

Great Cardio

Cardio can be a really hard form of exercise that people struggle to find motivation for. Running, cycling and swimming are three of the most common forms of cardio, but your average person doesn't find a lot of use in them because they have no real end goal, other than to just get better. Dancing lessons give you great cardio workouts while also teaching you a valuable skill that you can use in a variety of other social settings. If you are looking for a low-impact form of cardio that is fun and easy to do in a group, dancing lessons are a must.

Good For Your Joints

You may already feel like your age with the way some of your joints are stiff and sore. Keeping your body flexible and in good working order is important to avoid chronic pain, especially as you get older. No matter how young you are, it is always a good idea to take on activities that stretch and challenge your joints, ligaments, and muscles, and dancing does that. There are many types of dance, and some are more impactful on your joints than others, so you may try and find one that is a little more relaxing or easy, while still keeping you fresh.

Social Benefit

It can be really hard to try and find a group of friends who share a common interest as you move into your adult years. Without the framework of school or college to put you in contact with new people for prolonged periods of time, many people struggle to make friends. Dancing lessons are open to everyone and can open you up to a whole range of new people that you might never have thought about introducing yourself to before. If you want a new group of friends and a way to keep in contact with them, dancing is a fun way to find some.
