Swedish study finds that girls who took dance classes improved their mental health and reported a boost in mood.

How To Improve Your Mood – Dance!

We need to dance … dancing is food for the soul, ‘it’s silent poetry.’

Studies show that dancing is not only good for your physical health it also has an impact on your emotional center and generally enhances your mood and mental well-being when you move your body.

Specifically there are three elements in dancing that will improve your mind and body health:

  1. it’s social (you meet people)
  2. it’s physical (you are getting exercise )
  3. it’s cognitive (you have to remember the steps)

When you engage in things that are social, physical and cognitive you will improve your brain.  A recent study led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine revealed that dancing reduced stress, depression, the risk of dementia and increases serotonin, energy, flexibility, strength balance and endurance.

In addition to the health benefits…dancing is so much fun….you feel so good after! So grab a friend and COME OUT AND PLAY … COME MOVE YOUR BODY, improve your mind and dance away your worries! This ZUMBA dance class promises to give you a mood boost, increase your vigor and make you happy.
We will do dances that are fun and can be done by anyone… remember, everyone can dance. Whether you’re a total dance novice or an experienced mover, you’ll learn new Zumba, Indian and Hip-Hop dance moves. Above all, we want to make sure you have major fun!

The one-of-a-kind class will be lead by the great Venezuelan dance master, Samuel Salazar. Sam is a Zumba Fitness instructor at the world renowned ALVIN AILEY Dance Center in New York City. His classes are attended by numerous celebrities including Beyonce Knowles and her sister Solange.

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” – Freidrich Nietzsche
