According to a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Brighton in England, 30 minute dance classes burn more calories than running and swimming. On top of that, in addition to physical benefits, dance improves people’s psychological state as well.

Dr Nick Smeeton, from the University of Brighton, said: ‘Dance not only appears to increase positive and reduce negative emotions, which are typical effects of exercise, but we also found that dancing actually reduced feelings of fatigue too.’ The study was conducted with a group of students between ages 24 and 38.  The 15 dancers from London’s City Academy, took part in a series of dance classes, during which, researchers measured heart rate, distance covered, energy expended and psychological states. They took part in 30-minute sessions of ballet, ballroom, contemporary, salsa, street and swing dance.

Overall, dance is fun and a sustainable way to keep fit and it’s accessible to everyone! Let’s dance and be fit!

And now back to dancing … Think about it, have you ever seen a sad person dancing?
Usually the mood is one of joy, happiness and elevation, and here’s why!

A 2003 study by New York’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine verifies
dancing’s ability to increase blood flow to the brain with activities that
include memorizing complex steps, staying with the rhythm of music and
working with a partner.  This study credits dancing’s social interaction with
decreasing stress and depression. The Mayo Clinic also released a study
on the heath benefits of dance and reported that self-confidence and
self-discipline come right along with enhanced circulation, muscle tone
and coordination.
