CLICK BELOW TO EXPLORE THE BENEFITS OF DANCING:
Psychological and Emotional Well-being
Relieve Stress and Anxiety
Built up stress can weaken the immune system and lead to all kinds of problems. Researchers found dance to alleviate stress, reduce tension, and eliminate anxiety. Self-expression and physical movement allow the body and mind to let go of worries.
Become the Center Of Your Universe
ABD will take you on a journey to a world where music and self-expression create an alternate reality that revolves around you. We’ll make your dance fantasy a dream come true.
Explore Your Creativity
The music is your paint, your body is your paintbrush, the dance floor is your canvas, and ABD is your inspirational muse. Let’s get your creative juices flowing!
Relax and Unwind
Let the music take over as you relax and let go, feeling freedom and comfort in your body. Allow your muscles to breathe and release all tension as you glide across the room.
Strengthen Your Mind
A 21-year study by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine proved that ballroom dancing is the best way to prevent neurological degeneration such as Alzheimer’s disease. “Making rapid decisions and movements in social dancing increases neural network connectivity and overall intelligence.”
Learn Essential Skills
Dancing is recommended to people of all ages because it teaches coordination, balance, discipline, social etiquette, grace, sportsmanship, and makes you a more well-rounded individual. It’s never too late to learn something new!
Gain Confidence & Improve Self-Esteem
Confidence is gained through acquiring knowledge, self-improvement, and a sense of achievement. ABD will help you develop personally by providing you with empowering knowledge about your mind, body, and self.
Your New Hobby
Everyone needs a hobby, so why not take on a healthy, fun, and useful activity that will enrich your life!
Improved Physical Health
It’s not a secret that dancing is a really fun workout. It’s a great way to build your confidence, while helping you reach a weight loss goal or tone your physique.
Get Fit and Healthy
Ballroom dancing is one of the most fun ways to stay in shape. It’s a fantastic aerobic exercise, builds a strong core, improves balance and coordination, strengthens bones, builds lean muscle, and more. Using your own body for resistance makes it safe and easy!
Fountain of Youth
Nothing brings us back to the joys of childhood more than dancing and prancing to our favorite songs. We can style your moves to any rhythm so you can move to your favorite songs on the soundtrack of your life.
Increase Energy Levels, Elevate Your Mood, Boost Immune System
Dancing is a proven way to raise your endorphin levels, which are responsible for alleviating pain, improving overall well-being, and enhancing immune response. In short, it makes you feel great and get sick less often!
Improve Posture and Relieve Pain
Maintaining proper posture, such as the one used in dancing, strengthens the joints, tendons, and supporting muscles. It also helps prevent loss of minerals in bones. Doctors recommend regular ballroom dancing for osteoporosis, arthritis, and other debilitating conditions.
Increase Flexibility and Mobility
Ballroom dancing increases the amount of synovial fluid around the joints. This greatly improves mobility. Continuous stretching through dance will strengthen and lengthen your muscles, therefore making you more flexible and mobile as you age.
Accelerate Recovery From Injury
Doctors recommend light weight-bearing exercises to help strengthen the bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and tissue surrounding the injured area. Many ABD students have recovered from hip replacement, spine surgery, and other injuries in a fraction of the recovery time suggested by their doctors. Just read the stories on our blog!
Social Benefits and Skills
Body Language is the Universal Language
