We found a great article online, “Use It or Lose It: Dancing Makes You Smarter” by Richard Powers.
“For centuries, dance manuals and other writings have lauded the health benefits of dancing, usually as physical exercise. More recently we’ve seen research on further health benefits of dancing, such as stress reduction and increased serotonin level, with its sense of well-being.
“Most recently we’ve heard of another benefit: Frequent dancing apparently makes us smarter.”
Congratulations on choosing Fred Astaire Dance Studios to get involved in the world of ballroom dancing! It is with great enthusiasm that we at the Fred Astaire Columbus Northwest Dance Studio welcome you to our growing family of ballroom dancers.
