It improves your mobility and flexibility


Dance teaches the body different ways to move. From splits, to handstands, dance is primarily about movement, and it will help the train the body to become more flexible and move easier.

As you take on more challenging steps and stunts over time, your body becomes more trained to be able to move the way you want it to. It’s a great way to push the boundaries of your body.

Muscle strengthening and toning


If you’re looking to tone your body, dance can help you out with that too. Learning different steps and repeatedly performing these do yield results over time. Practice always makes progress!

While you might not immediately see results, you’ll notice your body getting stronger as your train to be able to perform the steps. This helps build core muscles, giving you better control of your body.
