When the topic of ballroom dancing comes to mind, most people imagine graceful duos, holding each other closely, gliding across the dance floor. Certainly ballroom dancing is one of the most romantic activities one can partake in. However, you may be surprised to know there are many tangible benefits to dancing, as well. Scientists have proven that dancing improves heart health, boosts brain function, assists with fitness and weight loss and dancing is great mood enhancer. Just try not to smile while dancing!
