Country dancing has a range of health benefits, both mentally and physically! Perhaps not as much as a Zumba class, but still good for your health... The positive effects of line dance can be seen first of all in your body, and this is after only a few months of dance sessions.

Country dancing works the abdominal muscles through the fast tempo and energetic moves. Country line dancing helps lower your blood pressure with quick dance steps that improve blood circulation to the heart. What’s more, country dancing can increase your body’s energy levels and even prevent the onset of diseases such as osteoporosis.

Finally, line dancing is known for the general well-being it gives: students can learn to unwind and improve concentration while still having fun!
