Social dancing, and Latin dancing especially, has many physical and mental health benefits. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic have found that social dancing reduces the feeling of stress, increases energy, improves muscle tone and can even improve one’s coordination. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute has also reported that social dancing can lead to lower risks of heart disease, decrease blood pressure and help people in maintain fitness.
