Why Ballroom Dance: Because it makes you SMARTER!

One of the MANY benefits of ballroom dancing is that it makes you smarter and mentally stronger! 
A study that was published in the  New England Journal of Medicine shows that stimulating your mind by dancing can prevent Alzheimer's disease and other dementia. Dancing increases cognitive acuity (the ability to think clearly, the ability to reason, and remember) in people of all ages! The study showed that some activities have a higher beneficial rate than others in making your mind
Reading lowered the risk of dementia by 35%.
Doing Crossword puzzles 4 times a week lowered the risk by 47%.
Bicycling, swimming, and golfing played no part in lowering the risk of dementia.
 Dancing lowered the risk of dementia by 76%!! 

The best way to make your mind stronger is to involve yourself in activities like Ballroom Dancing, which force you to make rapid fire decisions and split second choices.

Dancing with different partners builds up your cognitive acuity. Dancing with new people forces you to tailor your dancing. Your body and mind have to adjust to your new partner each time, making your mind stronger by thinking!

The more often you Ballroom Dance the stronger your mind becomes. Frequency is key when strengthening your mind. The sooner you start building up your cognitive acuity, the stronger your mind will become. So start Ballroom Dancing TODAY to live a healthy lifestyle!!
