Dancing has the ability to change the inner you for the better with external movements .MRI Scans shows that the same neurons are fired when you watch some one else dance , as it would if you are dancing yourself .
Dancing also fosters empathy, elevates mood and has the power to spread smiles....making people experience emotions which they may have never felt possible too. In a study conducted in Italy on cardiac patients who took waltz classes not only did they develop healthier arteries ,reducing of blockages , but also reported to be in much better spirit than those who took exercise classes like cycling and treadmill..
The expressive aspect of dance releases pent up emotion and is godsend for those who find it difficult to communicate verbally. As actions at times speaks louder than words dancers can simply bring out what they want to say in movements.Thus dancing restores the equilibrium of the mind and body .
Dancing with a partner makes you think beyond yourself and for another. Everyday if you are able to get some time to dance a bit ... its a holistic way that helps in paving the way to a happy healthy, healing harmonious you.
