Do you sing in the shower and dance when no one is looking? Shows like, “Dancing with the Stars” has put dancing in the forefront these days. Like singing, dancing is a soul level expression that often time gets inhibited by our egos and insecurities; and often we become intimidated of how people will judge us. However, watch any baby around lively music and they immediately start bouncing, smiling and moving. Dancing is an innate desire. If you remove your negative voice from your head and let go, you’ll find it can open the door to a fun, personal expression while burning calories.
Additionally, dancing provides social connections. Today’s society has statistically lonelier people than ever before. Our individualistic culture is disconnecting us from face to face connections and interactions. Research shows that loneliness leads to higher blood pressure, higher stress chemicals like cortisol and decreased immunity. These effects often spiral into the vicious cycle of other negative patterns of over-eating and a sedentary lifestyle.
Fortunately, the Salsa Sexy book, available to download for free, will introduce you to the many benefits of dance. From burning calories to socializing with friends, dancing offers loads of health benefits. According to the Mayo Clinic “dancing can burn as many calories as walking, swimming or riding a bicycle. During a half hour of sustained dancing you can burn between 200 and 400 calories. One factor that determines how many calories you’ll expend is distance. In one study, researchers attached pedometers to square dancers and found each person covered nearly five miles in a single evening.”
Dancing also provides opportunity for social interactions and forming friendships that benefit you mentally and physically. Salsa Sexy promotes dance due to the numerous benefits that dance offers. We encourage you to try it. You just might find it opens up doors to fun, excitement and friendship that you never thought possible.
The story of Jeanel and Shahrouz in their Salsa Sexy journey is documented in their book.
