The Benefits of Dancing with Arthur Murray
The benefits of ballroom dancing are often surprising to new students. Fun, exercise, and meeting people are natural outcomes of social dancing, but the benefits of dancing can extend far beyond even those. Dancing opens doors at social events and private functions. It promotes confidence, boosts self-esteem, reduces social anxiety, and enables people to connect interpersonally in a world that ever relies on technology and digital communication.
In addition, the mental benefits of ballroom dance are staggering. Helping improve memory, reduce anxiety, develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and boosting endorphins, the list of benefits ballroom dance brings for mental health goes on and on. It is even being studied for its positive effects in helping combat PTSD and TBI in veterans! Ballroom dance has been especially helpful for those who have lost loved ones or experienced a divorce or other family disruption — read their testimonies here.
In terms of physical benefits, many students have experienced weight loss, increased flexibility, enhanced strength, better posture, lowered blood pressure, increased energy and endurance, and a more positive over-all mood. Some students have been referred by their physicians, or recommended to continue dancing due to the benefits they have experienced.
