Of course, movement is one of the most prominent benefits. Getting your body up and moving is a great way to boost your mood, your endurance, and your health. With lessons from Arthur Murray Dance Studio, you’ll also find that your movements feel more natural and less cumbersome because you learn the key to moving smoothly through dance.

Dancing and flexibility go hand-in-hand, so it makes sense that while you’re learning ballroom dance methods, you’ll gain more flexibility! From flexibility and strength in your ankles to better flexibility in your back and your stabilizing muscles, ballroom dancing works a large number of joints, tendons, and ligaments in your body, helping to boost your natural flexibility!

Staying balanced while you’re dancing is a key component of ballroom dancing, but did you know that will also translate into better balance in your everyday life? You’ll find that it’s easier to not just stay on your feet, but stay stable and upright because your body’s balancing muscles are better practiced and stronger.

The combination of flexibility, movement, and balance is coordination, so it makes sense that with each of these parts of your body functions improved, you’ll have better coordination, too! Whether you notice that you’re less clumsy or that you’re better able to navigate difficult terrain and environments, your body’s natural coordination can be improved through ballroom dancing!
