Ballroom dancing became very popular in USA with the appearence of Dancing with the Stars. Everybody dreams to dance and be on a stage one day. But Ballroom Dancing as elegant and beautiful as it is, also brings a lot of benefits.
Once you start dancing you get back in shape, and also lose weight and lose that belly fat. Ballroom Dancing has a variety of styles that can offer you a variety of steps and exercises. You can start with the upbeat dances like Salsa or Swing to warmup and get your body going. Then you can continue to work with some Rumba, Merengue and Cha-Cha for your hips, some Waltz and Bolero for your legs, and Paso Doble and Flamenco for your arms.
Because you have such a variety of dances and styles, your body will never get used to a certain pattern of exercises. For example you can take any of the dances and you can start with the begginer level, than by the time you finish the first 2 levels you should know more than 40 different patterns only in one dance. Now you can multiply this by more than 20 dances and you can see how diversified Ballroom Dancing is.
Another amazing study also offers an interesting picture about Dancing. It can prevent Falling!
Studies find that 30% of people 65 and older living in the community experience a fall per year, going up to nearly 50% of adults 80 years and older. Importantly, greater than 30% of falls among older adults require medical evaluation, with about 5% to 7% of falls causing a broken bone(fracture). As a result, falls are not just costlycostly, but can lead to a deterioration in physical and mental function, but also the potential for inability to continue living independently, requiring a skilled nursing facility or nursing home.
This study was made on 4200 people and the results are very interesting. The persons of the same age who danced e had a 37% reduction in risk of falling in 8 of the 29 trials, and a 31% reduction in falling noted in 7 other trials.
That's why it is so important to Dance. Yes it is fun, you can lose weight and you can get back in shape, but you also can prevent falling, which eventually can prove being very costly and can bring a lot of unconfortable pain and discomfort!
