Benefits of Dance

Social dance is enjoyed by a great many people and provides a valuable form of exercise which does not become boring with the passing of time. It is a social activity engaging people of all ages and sexes and is fun and fitness all in one convenient parcel.

The self-discipline involved in learning to dance is of inestimable value to the young as it promotes qualities of confidence, poise and self esteem. It also allows both children and adults to participate in competitions which develop team spirit and a sense of achievement.

Dancing is an ideal way to socialise and meet others of all ages and to do so in a friendly and relaxed environment. It is also a great way to keep fit and with today's society's fears of obesity amongst our children, it is a more interesting way to keep fit than the treadmill!
