If one ask people what do they love about dancing, they all come more or less, to the same answer. Dancing is relaxing, makes them happy, distracts them away from anxieties related to negative emotions, experiences or thoughts.

Paraphrasing Daniel Goleman: A relaxing mind is a productive, creative and efficient mind capable to achieve surprising results to the individual who experience it.

At Felliews Dansestudio™, we think that dancing is like a magic power that absorbs our body into the music, making us express the effects of its melody throughout movement, whether is improvised or learned in a classroom. Thus, thanks to that positive experience, scientist from all over the world has dedicated time and effort to find out how much dancing can really benefit in a short or long term our health.

Stress in small amounts could be beneficial, desired or even healthy, like during an athletic performance. It plays a factor in motivation, adaptation and reaction, however excessive amounts of stress, may lead to stroke, heart attack or mental illness such as depression (psychological pain).

Stress cause us to age five years sooner than it should be. When we have stress we are induce to a condition that is useful to fight or running away from danger.

On the top of our Kidneys we have the “Adrenal Glands" responsible to release a powerful hormone called “Cortisone” when we feel stressed. Even though it is important to have some cortisone, too much of it over time degrades muscles and weakens bones. In consequence, taking stress out of our life may improve our chances of a lengthy existence. Then, a social activity like dancing at Felliews Dansestudio ™, is particularly an effective choice to maximize your chances of a prolonged and healthy life.






Scientist at Marburg University in Germany, analyzed a number of physical activities and their effect in helping people over sixty years of age with their balance, stress level and physical condition.

Professor Anita Hokelmann divided forty volunteers into two separate groups. Each one was asked to do two different kinds of exercises three times a week, during the following six months. One group was dedicated to exercise with “Cyclic Movements” like walking, swimming and running; while the other group was focus on dancing.

Dr. Marco Narici was the specialist in muscle degeneration for this investigation, and he has an ingenious way to find out if a person has gained or lost muscle, focusing in a crucial element in the process of how the brain communicates with the nerves to induce the muscle into action. This element is well known as the “Neuro Muscular Junction”.

Our muscles are nerves that constantly communicates to each other through the “Neuro muscular junction”. If the nerve stop communicating with the muscle, the muscle starts to degenerate and releases some of the components in the blood which become the evidence if a person is getting weaker or stronger. In consequence, all participants at the end of this study provided blood samples. The participants that were dedicated to dance as a form of exercise did thirty percent better than those focusing on bicycling, swimming, gym, running and others. This investigation concluded that dancing gives a greater result as form of exercise and the best way for beating aging.

The reason for this outcome – as we paraphrased Dr. Marco Narici - is that dancing engages your brain through a series of skills involving learning dance figures, hand-eye coordination, balance, keeping the tempo of music, interacting with a partner and changes from acceleration to deceleration, kinesthetic and aerobics.

Certainly, Felliews Dansestudio™ and its students acknowledge, that dancing is a very complex sport but a higher rewarded activity that challenge different systems in the human body as we age. It is far more challenging than just going to the gym and exercise a few number of muscles. Besides, it keeps the “Neuro Muscular Junction” healthy, also strengthens the bond between muscles and nerves, helping the body to stay strong. As we get older, we really should not slow down but become more active, and dancing is the best exercise to battle stress and help us to stay young.

A group of scientist at The Albert Einstein, College of Medicine, in New York City in 2001 published their research results of twenty-one years, where Four hundred and sixty-nine senior citizens participated in the study. The studies concluded that dancing improved «neuroplasticity» and cognitive function, concretely against dementia. Other scholars in England corroborate that patients diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, benefited from dancing activities - New England Journal of Medicine (see publication of 2003 ) ; moreover, the Department of Neurology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles – USA, came to the conclusion that dancing helps people diagnosed with Parkinson's disease as a form of therapy and relieve (see publications of 2013 ).

Dementia describe the symptoms caused by damage to the brain cells that can include confusion, disorientation, memory loss, difficulty thinking, problem solving or issues with language. Alzheimer's disease is one of the most common causes of dementia.

Parkinson's disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative movement disorder that is often accompanied by impaired balance while walking, stiffness, tremor, difficulty initiating movement, forward-flexed posture and small steps when walking.

Learning dancing – paraphrasing Neurologist Dr. Robert Katzman – influenced mental acuity, prevents or reduces the risk of dementia by 76 percent and alleviates Parkinson's disease. Dancing boost the «Alpha Brain Waves»; provide individuals of specific movement strategies; maintains intelligence by the constant use of “fraction of a second decision making”; it forces our brain to regularly thread its neural pathways, giving us greater cognitive reserve and increased complexity of neuronal synapses.

People who enjoy dancing as a lifetime hobby at Felliews Dansestudio, agree that they can understand choreography, it principles and the movement flowing from one action to another; however, when it comes for the brain to decipher direction, balance, gracious movements of our limbs and phalanges, it is a challenge, that in most cases end with our «body parts» everywhere except for the desired location (kinesthetic).

So, if dancing is complex and sometimes frustrating - Why do people keep dancing? Here are some answers: Because it is relaxing; has a social setting that enhance motivation; it helps us mentally and emotionally; it is fun; we can workout and listen music; challenge constantly our skills; make us rise to the demands of picking up improvised or choreographed routines in a matter of minutes; give us a better balance, flexibility and, more importantly, because dancing increases the odds of maintaining a healthy brain for the rest of our life!
