Dance Lessons and Brain Function

When it comes to the art of dance, many simply think of this artistic expression as just a physical act for entertainment and storytelling. And while that may certainly be true, there are other factors to dance that benefit people as well.

One of the greatest benefits of dance that people gain are the psychological benefits. In a recent study, it was found that by combining cognitive thought processes with muscle memory at least once per week, one can significantly improve their brain function.

For example, if you’ve ever watched a ballerina or any other type of ballroom dancer, you’ve probably noticed the amount they can spin without getting dizzy. Research shows that with training, dancers can learn to suppress certain signals in the brain that trigger feelings of dizziness, allowing them to spin endlessly (seemingly) without falling over or getting sick from dizziness. For those that suffer from chronic dizziness, dance classes can be a great treatment.

With aerobic activity, one can increase the function of their cerebellum, and for those with a TBI or a fear of falling, the findings from this research could potentially bring great change to their lives.

Improve Your Chronic Dizziness With Dance Classes

If you or someone you know suffers from chronic dizziness, fear of falling, or a TBI and has yet to find a solution that brings them relief or alleviates the severity of their experiences, then consider dance as a means of finding relief or improvement.
