Dance Benefit: It's Fun!

Dance Is Fun!

“If exercise is not an enjoyable experience, we’re not going to do it,” Comana says. And the bottom line is that dancing is, plain and simple, fun in the way a monotonous treadmill run probably never will be. Plus, busting a move can trigger the release of feel good hormones like serotonin and endorphins. “People think, ‘I’m not exercising, I’m dancing,'” he says. “But at the end of the day, you’re moving and you’re burning calories. It’s just as good as a cardio class.”

And, as Mallet explains, not only will you be more likely to stick with a fitness routine if it’s fun, but you’ll also want to do it for longer.

“This will push you to move for a longer period of time than typical exercise, purely because it’s a lot of fun and not the dreaded word ‘exercise,'” she told The Huffington Post. “Dance inspires people to get in shape with something they love to do, which doesn’t feel like dreaded exercise or a bad chore, but fun and exhilarating.
