Find your dance !



Have you ever thought of breaking your routine and trying something new? What about dancing?

As any other form on physical activity, dancing can help you among others, to stay in shape, improve your mood or reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.

 

Surprisingly, a study published in 2003 in The New England Journal of Medicine found that dance lowers risk of dementia. The study leader, Joe Verghese M.D. analysed the behaviour of 469 people aged 75 years over a period of 5 years, who were subjected to different leisure activities, out of which dancing, was the only physical activity that carried reduced risk.

 

It is never too late to find your move, and why not dancing?
