Dance Classes from Arthur Murray

Discover the Health Benefits of Dance Classes

Recent studies have proven that dance classes offer many different health benefits to students. One of the most profound advantages is the benefit to memory, as students and dancers are tasked with remembering various dance moves. This increases the level of brain chemical cells used to encourage the growth of nerve cells. It is also a fun and active way to ensure that you stay fit and in shape throughout the year.

Another popular research study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2003 showed that ballroom dancers have a far lower probability of developing dementia. Dance classes have a positive impact on the students and dancers’ health. It really doesn’t matter whether you enrol for ballroom, jazz, tap dance or hip-hop. Each style of dance contributes to the overall health of the dancer.
