After every session I feel so wonderful and full of energy!
Regular dancing is great for keeping active, maintaining strong bones, improving posture and muscle strength, increasing balance and co-ordination, and beating stress.
The NHS have produced a helpful guide for beginners to help get you started in dancing (including wheelchair dancing), to introduce you to some popular dance styles taught in the UK, and to help you find a dance class in your area. Read the Dance for fitness guide.
