So if you are anything like me, and love to dance, then read up on these five benefits of dancing.

2. No more sad or depressed moods.

Let’s face it, life is tough and gets hard, what better way to rid yourself of that depression then dancing. You need to try it, to believe that a benefit of dancing is that it reduces symptoms of depression.

3. No more slouching and improves posture. 

Do you slouch when you are sitting at your desk? Dancing is a great way to improve your posture. You’ll always hear the instructor screaming out, “straighten those backs, point your toes!” If you continue to dance, it will eventually improve your posture and you will gain better control of your body.

4. Dancing helps you lose weight.
