Dancing is good for your health! A UCLA Healing Arts program representative and dance therapist, Lora Wilson, says partner dancing stimulates neurons, promoting neuroplasticity. The New England Journal of Medicine published a study which showed dancing as the only activity for folks in retirement communities which lowered the chances of developing dementia. Dancing the tango, finds the Montreal Neurological Institute, helps reduce the symptoms of Parkinsons’s disease. Wilson also says dancing in synchronicity with another person helps improve non-verbal communication skills and mood.
