Dancing is not only excellent for your body but also your brain.
Recently we've seen research on further health benefits of dancing, such as stress reduction and increased serotonin level, with its sense of well-being. A major study at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City studied 75 year olds activities for 20 years. This added to the growing evidence that stimulating one's mind by dancing can ward off Alzheimer's disease and other dementia, much as physical exercise can keep the body fit. Dancing also increases cognitive acuity at all ages. Dancing frequently - 76%. That was the greatest risk reduction of any activity studied, cognitive or physical.
Keep on Dancing!
