Music and dance are also great stress relievers and can help to boost your confidence. The benefits of dancing are similar to other cardio activities such as running

The brilliant thing about dancing is it's free, you don't need any special kit, and you don't even have to leave the house. Whether it’s a kitchen disco, living room rave or a dance workout class, these are all good steps to becoming more active.

Dance with Kids

Dance is a great workout for kids too. Movement and rhythm come naturally to children and not only does dance allow them to use up all that excess energy, but it’s also a great way for them to express themselves.

Dancing can also increase your child's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength, and stamina. It can also help keep their heart healthy, as well as improve balance and co-ordination and correct poor posture.
