Dance Every Dance is Not Just Good in Football

By Tom Herrin

There are a lot of good sayings.  They are intended to motivate people and get to the point.  One of the ones I remember hearing from college coaches is “dance every dance.”  It is, of course, referring to giving an all-out effort all of the time. For those looking for a little more effective way of exercising and staying in shape, dancing can do a great job.  I admire those people who train as dancers and stay in tremendous shape. Casual dancing may not go to that extent, but it can be a way of successfully staying in pretty decent shape. Square dancing may seem like a culture of its own, but it can be a good way of incorporating some wholesome fun with exercise.

It Can Work for Those with Some Health Issues

Everyone is not cut out to go and get into heavy activity.  People with health issues that may be minor but need addressing may do well with square dancing.  One reason is that if they need a breath during activity, they can sit one out. As long as they have a clearance from a doctor or healthcare provider familiar with their health, square dancing may be ideal for their needs.  It can be a good source of moderate exercise that is enjoyable enough to encourage them to want to do more.

It May Keep the Mind Sharp

The fact that dementia is a common concern for many people today may have to do with the aging population.  It seems that there has been more attention to research into these issues. Keeping minds active appear to be one way to deter some of the early onset of such problems.  Square dancing requires response to some of the calls and instructions. As people carry out these and put them into use as steps, they are using mental processes that can help to keep the mind active.

It May Help to Avoid Injuries

Dancing can help to develop coordination.  When people improve their coordination, they are more likely to have better control over their bodies.  This can go a long way to prevent accidents which can result in injuries. For a good, moderate, and fun exercise that can teach and involve the whole family, try square dancing.  There are very likely some groups in your area that can meet your needs.
