MedicineNet reported that aerobic exercise, such as dancing could prevent or reduce the chance of some “cancer, diabetes, depression and cardiovascular disease”.
When you engage in regular dancing, the heart becomes stronger and is able to pump more blood with each beat.
As the heart is a muscle, it can become bigger as it strengthens, enabling it to pump blood more efficiently.
Additionally, the number of mitochondria inside your muscles increases – and this is a great thing to happen.
The more regularly you engage in dancing, the body gets better at burning fat.
It’s recommended to move about for about 30 minutes nearly every day – whatever you choose to do.
In order to reap the benefits of dancing, you need to move enough so that you feel warm and slightly out of breath.
