Default Dancing For Exercise

So far I have written a lot of articles on ballet dancing, aimed at ballet dancers. Did you know that ballet dancing or any other dancing is not a joy that can be shared by dancers alone? Anyone can dance, and most people surprise themselves once they find the right form of dance to suit their personalities at how much they can actually do and achieve.

Most people know that they have to exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but it is getting motivated to exercise that is the difficult part. Exercise need not be boring, and if you can find something you are passionate about, you will enjoy exercising, and it won't be a chore anymore.

Ballet Dancing for Exercise:

If you are a highly disciplined person with a strong desire to get things just perfect, ballet dancing will be just the exercise form for you. A good ballet class that consists of a barre and centre, will exercise your entire body, and give you a sense of achievement at the end of your class. Your area should have various adult classes to choose from that will cater from beginners to advanced dancers. The important thing is to feel comfortable enough in class to be able to express yourself and lose yourself in the music.

Modern or Contemporary Dancing for Exercise:

Modern ballet or contemporary is a little less disciplined than classical ballet, but you will still need to work hard to get your technique right. The movements are slightly less stiff and more free and flowing. The music ranges from the classics to modern to rock, depending on the speed and type of exercise. A good class consisting of a barre routine, centre work and some floor work will give you an all over workout, while being a lot of fun. The class will move from fast and fun jazz to slow strengthening and stretching work on the floor, so it never gets boring.
