Replacing a Gym Membership With Dance Classes

Welcome back!

In our last blog, we touched on just a few of the many reasons why dance lessons are a much better workout that lifting and cardio. How is that so, you might ask? Well, it’s easy. Between getting to learn something new and burning more calories in an hour, it’s easy to see just how much better it is to learn how to dance, rather than to drag yourself to the gym, dreading every step on the treadmill. Here are just a few more reasons you’ll want to choose dance classes in D.C instead of signing up for a gym membership.

Dance Lessons For Getting In Shape

Okay, so you made yourself a New Year’s resolution to get into better shape, as well as to learn something new this year. Dance lessons help fulfill both of these resolutions all at once. They also present these other benefits as well.

Dance Classes Connect Body and Mind

It’s true, dancing is one of the most mentally challenging tasks you can do, and this is especially true for dance lessons. As you attempt to learn a new step, you have to take the time to connect your memory to your muscles, and from there you have to connect each move. While trying to learn a new dance move, you’re also required to learn the right timing of that dance move. Between counting the time of the music and completing the dance combo, you actually workout your brain at the same time as working out your muscles!
Dance Promotes Flexibility and Balance

It’s true. If you’ve ever watched ballroom dancing and saw just how graceful the dancers looked and envied their flexibility, then dance lessons are for you. Stretching for your dance lessons will help you gain flexibility, but the moves themselves help to stretch your muscles while also requiring you to stay balanced!

If you’re looking to take ballroom dancing of any kind, whether it’s the Lindy Hop or how to Salsa, then don’t hesitate to contact our dance instructors at our dance studio. We can’t wait to teach you!
