By Maria Crawford, professional dancer in London. We all know that dancing is a great physical and cardiovascular workout - improving endurance, flexibility, and helping to tone all those muscles. BUT did you ever think about the effect it can have on your brain?! Reports state that dancing is also one of the best ways to keep your brain sharp as a knife. Having a regular boogie has been linked with reducing dementia risk, boosting mental health, reducing stress and anxiety, and increasing feelings of interconnectedness. That feeling of interconnectedness is so vital during this time of isolation and lockdown. At a time when stress levels may be high, uncertainty prevails and many people are feeling alone, dance can have the power to unite us. A whole group of people moving together and feeling the beat of the same music creates a feeling of unity and freedom at the same time. No wonder humanity has been dancing for centuries! DanceFit combines different dance styles to give you a mood-boosting, endorphin-releasing and body-grooving cardio workout, which is an all round party for your soul. So whether you’re inspired by 1980s Jane Fonda or Beyoncé’s backing dancers - turn that music up, let go of your inhibitions and get ready to feel fabulous!
