The new year is a great time to try new things. Here are some compelling scientific reasons to have a go at lindy hop:
- Partner dancing is good for your brain! Studies have shown that partner dancing can reverse the signs of ageing in your brain and help prevent dementia.
- Physical touch is good for mental health Apparently we are living through a crisis of touch. If that’s news to you its probably because you’re already a dancer ;)
- Exercise is good for you! This one doesn’t have a link because we all know its true. Exercise that is fun and exercise that you don’t have to think about doing is THE BEST KIND.
- Making friends as an adult is hard. Taking up a sociable hobby is a great way to expand your social circle and the lindy hop community is an extremely friendly bunch!
Take the plunge its totally worth it!
