Learn to dance and discover the benefits

Keeping fit
Keeping fit doesn’t have to be boring! Dancing is a great way to exercise, while socialising and learning a new lifelong skill. Many dance students have reported improved posture, and increased:

  • Weight loss
  • Flexibility
  • Energy
  • Strength
  • Endurance.

At William Maslin Dance Studios, we offer more than just dance classes to keep you fit. Try our dance socials, Yoga and Pilates.

Boosting your memory
Dance can teach you grace, and also help you age gracefully. According to a study in The New England Journal of Medicine, dancing may boost your memory and prevent you from developing dementia as you get older. Science reveals that aerobic exercise can reverse volume loss in the hippocampus, the part of the brain that  controls memory. The hippocampus naturally shrinks during late adulthood, which often leads to impaired memory and sometimes dementia.
Improving your flexibility
Learning to dance will challenge your body to move in ways you never have before, encouraging underused muscles to come alive. Studies have shown that stretching and movements associated with learning to dance can improve your flexibility. Increasing your flexibility will help ease joint pain and post-exercise soreness. It will also support you as a dancer to move with grace and agility, and add variety to your steps with, for example, developes and stylish dips.
Reducing stress
If you’re feeling tense or stressed out, partner dancing can help.
A study in the Journal of Applied Gerontology found that partner dancing, accompanied with music, can help reduce and relieve stress. So what are you waiting for? Come on in and dance away the stress.
Diminishing depression
Dancing really does lift your spirits, according to a study in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease. The study showed that partner dancing helped reduce depression and anxiety. People who danced showed the fewer depression symptoms and increased confidence. In particular social partner dancing was very effective, and that’s what we do at William Maslin Dance Studios.

Got the blues? Come on in, we’ll get you dancing.

Helping your heart health
Dance is a great activity to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. People who do moderate-intensity dance, such as ballroom and latin partner dance, reduce their risk of cardiovascular death, according to a study in American Journal of Preventative Medicine. The impact of dance on our heart health is better than walking.

Do your heart a favour and come dance with us!

Losing weight
Bored with the same old gym routine? Ready to have fun and learn a new skill while losing weight?

A study in the Journal of Physiological Anthropology found that an exercise program of aerobic dance training is just as helpful for losing weight and increasing aerobic power as cycling and jogging.

Balance better
If you are nervous about falling as you get older, some dance lessons might help ease your worries, according to a study in the Journal of Aging and Physical Activity that showed Tango dancing can improve balance in aging adults. Dancing requires a lot of fast movement and good posture, so frequent dancing will help you stabilise and gain better control of your body.
Increase energy
Can’t seem to find your get-up-and-go? Taking a dance class might help. Research published in The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition found that a weekly dance program, from Fox Trot to Rumba, could improve physical performance and increase energy levels among adults.
Make friends
A dance class is the perfect setting to make new friends and branch out socially. Maintaining positive relationships may just rank up there with healthy eating and exercise. Being socially engaged leads to increased happiness, reduced stress, and a stronger immune system. We don’t just offer ‘traditional’ partnered dance classes, but have same-sex couple dance classes too.
And much, much more!
