With great camaraderie and no need for a partner, this 60-minute class is a wonderful way to stay healthy. Regular line dancing may increase flexibility, strength and lung capacity, and lead to an improvement in bone health, balance and coordination. Adding light weights increases the health benefits! (Weights are optional.)
In addition, a 21-year study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that among several forms of exercise studied, only dancing reduced the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia; and it was by a dramatic 76 percent.
