The art of dance is a great way to stay in shape. There are numerous schools of dance, and each school benefits the body in a different way. Traditional ballroom dancing is not often thought of alongside modern hip hop and Zumba as an overly athletic activity, but improved body alignment and better posture are just a few of the benefits provided by ballroom dancing. Salsa dancing, on the other hand, offers a more intense workout based on a simple three-step move. The hips and stomach receive good exercise during salsa routines, and extended performances offer a great cardio option. Finally, ballet is a more skillful pursuit that enhances balance and flexibility to such a degree as to help prevent injuries that can be incurred during everyday activities.
