Science Confirms: Dancing Makes You Happy

We don’t need science to tell us what we’ve known for ages, but it’s great to be able to welcome more and more of the scientific and medical communities to the dance floor, where studies are showing people consistently become happier and healthier!

This particular article from Psychology Spot points out:

“However, the magic of dancing can not simply be reduced to brain chemistry. Dancing is also a social activity that allows us connect with the others, share experiences and meet new people, which has a very positive effect on our mental health.”

Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

So what are you waiting for? If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a neurological disease, what better excuse other than to literally get happy?

Student Spotlight – Azi

Meet Simon and her mother “Azi”. Simon knew from recommendations of her doctors that getting her Mom out dancing was one of the healthiest she could do for Azi’s dementia. But private dance classes are expensive and, more importantly, Simon wanted to be there to support her Mom in class, not just stand by.

This is why Rx Ballroom Dance is different. After a few weeks of joining Rx Ballroom Dance classes, both Simon and Azi are loving every cha cha cha. Simon gets to be her mother’s dance partner, so Azi feels safe and relaxed. They both get to dance for the lesson and we can’t tell who is having more fun! Best of all, classes are free of charge so the financial restriction is never a problem.

These classes bring joy not only in to the lives of those affected by neurological disease, but their family members as well. A program built to foster connection, posture, balance and rhythm for participants and their families works.

Can Dancing Prevent Dementia? (Spoiler Alert!)

The Wall Street Journal explores: Can Dancing Prevent Dementia?

Spoiler Alert!

Our organization is proof that dancing, in particular ballroom dancing, has a profound positive effect on the brain. In just 6 weeks, our summer session participants reported:

1. Increase in perceived happiness
2. Increase in social interaction
3. Increase in ability to recall directions
4. Increase in confidence to recall details

Multiple studies through organizations and universities have shown how ballroom dancing specifically works to prevent Dementia. What if there was a nonprofit organization that brings local classes and opportunities free of charge to combat this neurological disease?

Oh, wait a minute, there is!

Rx Ballroom Dance represents a new way of thinking about brain health. Please help us grow and expand to provide classes to even more people who could benefit from the healthy holistic qualities of ballroom dance.
