The Southwest Booster - - Front Page - SUB­MIT­TED

Danc­ing is good ex­er­cise, makes the brain work and is fun. Dance has been part of the hu­man cul­ture for­ever, whether it was for rituals or cel­e­bra­tions. Most danc­ing to­day is done for recre­ation as an en­joy­able way to be more phys­i­cally ac­tive and stay fit.

Peo­ple of all ages, shapes and sizes can dance, which can pro­vide a wide range of phys­i­cal and men­tal benefits. These can in­clude im­proved con­di­tion of your heart and lungs, in­creased mus­cu­lar strength, tone, endurance and mo­tor fitness, help with weight man­age­ment, stronger bones and re­duced risk of os­teo­poro­sis. Danc­ing can im­prove bal­ance, co­or­di­na­tion, agility and flex­i­bil­ity. It is also a great way to so­cial­ize, meet and make new friends.

There are many forms of danc­ing, such as two step­ping, waltz­ing, walk­ing to the beat of the mu­sic or do­ing chore­ographed foot­work. These dance forms will be demon­strated and taught at a new-dancer level on Septem­ber 27. The dancers and teach­ers help­ing the new dancers were at one time in those same shoes too and some­times still are. There are many web­sites and youtube videos to see if you are on the com­puter.
