I found dance and I never loved back, I lllooooovvvveeeeee it. I have always been into fitness running marathons, triathlon etc and one day I happened upon a street dance class….. it changed everything for me. I travelled all over and did every class I could. I learnt my history and embraced my passion, and now I get to share that with you.
We all know that interval training is considered the best kind of exercise to get results and that’s exactly what dance is. However it has so many other benefits thrown in, we get to enjoy music, embrace creativity, laugh, smile and general have a blooming good time, you will work out without realising your working out.
No experience is required as long you have a heart beat you have rhythm. There’s no need to feel self conscious or worry that I will have had spinning on your head, we all work together and everyone’s welcome, just have to embrace ya inner kid, back to when we didn’t worry about dancing in public or what we looked at.
Dancing is tremendously beneficial in keeping us young. It retards the aging process immensely. It benefits our heart, cardiovascular system and increases our lung capacity.
Lubricated Joints. Dance aids in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis for men and women. Dancing can also help keep joints lubricated in order to prevent arthritis.
Dance exercises our bodies to allow for increased circulation. It helps us burn those calories away, while improving our stamina.
New research has discovered that it is necessary to measure both good and bad cholesterol levels when determining our health. Dancing aids in lipid control, which raises our HDL (good cholesterol), and lowers our LDL (bad cholesterol). Dancing is also great for diabetics because it aids in blood sugar control.
Dance improves our memory by making us recall steps, routines and dance patterns making it a great mental exercise for our brains. The big benefit is that increasing mental exercise keeps your mind young, quick, alert and open. Dancer strengthens our stabilizer muscles, while protecting our core and keeping us less prone to injury in our daily lives. Dancing also aids in co-ordination and helps strengthen our reflexes. It is a great way to keep our Central Nervous System and Peripheral Nervous System in tip-top shape by improving the connection of our bodies to our mind.
Dancing is recreational and entertaining. It creates a social life for us, while affording us the opportunity to make new friends. Friends helps us grow, make us laugh and support us as we learn.Culturally Diverse. Dancing has no cultural barriers. People from all parts of the world, with different ideologies, meet on the dance floor. Cultural interaction improves our health by expanding our mind and sharing our experiences. It helps us establish our self-confidence and self-discipline. It improves the harmony between our mind and body, giving us a sense of well-being.
I trained with Richard calander (the biggest loser) and obtain the urban funk qualification. I have danced with professions from all over the world. I’ve performed at the Hippodrome and danced in competitions but my passion is creating a routine and teaching. There is no feeling like teaching someone something they thought wasn’t possible…. i have taught at the international fitness convention and at various international events. We laugh we smile and there are no limits no restrictions and no excuses xx
