Salsa Dance Health Benefits
Dancing Salsa brings many health benefits at a physical, mental, and spiritual level. There are so many benefits but I will do my best to explain why you should join your first Salsa dance class starting this moment, this week.
Spiritual Health – Connection
We are social creatures. It doesn’t matter if you’re introverted or extroverted; we need connection. We are starving for connection, hungry for community. Salsa heals the soul because when you walk into a dance studio with your partner or as a single person, part of learning is getting in rotation, which means holding hands, smiling and exchanging energy while practicing your moves. Salsa dancing is spiritually healthy. It heals the soul because it allows you to connect. It soothes a lonely heart and makes you feel like you #belong.
Physical Health – Get Moving
I used to hate going to the gym. It used to be a chore, but I knew the importance of having a healthy exercise routine. So when I realized that Salsa can be a fun workout, I felt I found the right kind of workout for me. Salsa will help you get moving. On average, you do over 1500 steps in a single dance class. That number dramatically increases when you go out social dancing. I can assure you that being physical has never been as fun as when you do it with Salsa.
My suggestion is to come into a weekly class instead of drop-ins. Dancing every week helps you build momentum to be more physically active. Creating momentum benefits every other part of your life. When you’re coming in every week to a Salsa dance class, you start to build the routine of being physically active, which impacts every other aspect of your life. I can’t count how many people I have met who have changed their lives because they started taking Salsa classes and got inspired to be physically active. It is a transformative and incredible experience that begins with one weekly dance class.
Mental Health – Happiness
There are many salsa dance health benefits but none as great as feeling more happy. I believe happiness comes from doing difficult things. Salsa is challenging, but it’s good to feel challenged as it sparks creativity. We live in a world where all of our needs are met effortlessly. Every solution is at our fingertips. If we are hungry, we order food. If we are bored, we turn on Netflix or YouTube or Instagram or TikTok. That ephemeral pleasure is never a fulfilling experience. When you dance Salsa regularly, you can feel the progress in your body and your mood. You feel proud of yourself because you’re growing. Progress and growth are the basis of sustainable and genuine happiness.
So believe me when I say that there are many Salsa Health Benefits. You are connecting and being part of a community that practices a fun regular physical activity that is challenging but rewarding and creates a feeling of growth that leads to a happier life! So if you want a happier and healthier life, give yourself the gift of Salsa.
