Senior Approved Dances For a Healthier You

September 6th, 2017 The Loved Ones Desk Uncategorized

Dancing shoes don’t have to be retired, and with so many dance class options you can dance your way into happiness and health. If you or a special senior in your life are looking for a new and fun way to get your cardio in — here are just a few of the reasons it’s time to dust off your dancing shoes:

There Are Options

If you’re looking to shake your groove thing first look in your town to see if there are any senior exercise classes available to you; you can take a low-impact aerobics class or spice it up with some jazz or salsa! Looking to get dressed up — why not take a ballroom class! Not only is a great way to stay active but it allows you to work within your limits and at a pace that is comfortable for you. If group classes aren’t your thing, look into a workout DVD instead. No matter what you choose, you have plenty of options to work with.

The Benefits

It’s a great way to get your daily workout in. It can help you burn calories and get your heart rate up. Being active is great for your mood too; it’s known to improve energy and can reduce your risk of certain diseases. Some studies show it can even help your memory, keeping you sharp. Beyond that, it’s just an enjoyable way to sneak a workout in.

Don’t Forget Safety

Though no formal training is involved, you still want to be aware of your limitations. It can be easy to get into the moves and get carried away, but one of the most important things to remember when participating in a dance class is to do so safely. If you feel like your heart is beating faster than it should, slow it down a bit, and don’t push yourself to keep up. If you are unsure, you can always reach out to your doctor for modification.
