No Standing Only Dancing

No Standing Only DancingDancing is movement- and unless you’re a sponge, movement is life! By the transitive property, Dancing=Life. So given the choice between standing, arms crossed, stern faced with slack shoulders, and floating across the floor on two legs, who wouldn’t choose dancing? Think about it- how do people celebrate the best moments in life?

Imagine if a newlywed husband and wife walked into their reception and promptly stood still for several minutes while their wedding song played before going to greet their guests. Imagine a world in which high school seniors spent thousands on tuxedos, gowns and transportation only to practice their posture at prom! Imagine getting a promotion and going out with your friends to celebrate with a good night of standing!

When you stand, you observe life go by, but never take an active part in it. When you dance, you are part of life! So, as the picture says: No standing! Only dancing!

The Benefits of Ballroom Dancing
The benefits of ballroom dancing are easy to realize. Fun, exercise and meeting people are natural outcomes of social dancing. Dancing opens doors at social events and private functions.

People of all ages can learn to dance. Students from 18 to 80 have learned to dance in a fun and easy way using the World Famous Arthur Murray® teaching method.

Arthur Murray® Dance Center offers a fun, comfortable learning environment. Many students have reported weight loss, increased flexibility, enhanced strength, better posture, increased self confidence, lowered blood pressure, increased energy and endurance, and a more positive mood. Some students have been referred by their physicians or recommended to continue dancing due to the benefits they have experienced.

Don’t Be Surprised If You:
Arthur Murray® Dance Center students gain many benefits through becoming better dancers. While developing your dancing skills you should not be surprised if you: get more fun and enjoyment from your social life, enjoy increased self confidence, meet new people and make new friends, improve your overall health, feel more at ease in social situations, find the exercise and fitness you’ve wanted, make your partner happy, enjoy attending more parties, find your business relationships improving, acquire more grace and poise, overcome shyness, relieve stress, stand out on the dance floor in a good way, never have to say “no” to a dance invitation, discover recreation in a new way, feel refreshed and relaxed.

Dancing Will Last a Lifetime
One of the greatest benefits of learning to dance at the Arthur Murray® Dance Center is that your dancing will last a lifetime. It is always yours to continue and enjoy.

The Fun and Health Benefits of Zumba®
We also offer Zumba®, an easy-to-follow segment of dance aerobic movements. Zumba® uses a variety of styles in its routines, including Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, reggaeton, mambo, rumba, flamenco, and Hip Hop. Music selections include both fast and slow movements to help tone and sculpt the body in a healthy, fun, party-like atmosphere with Latin and Hip Hop inspiration all in one. Zumba® Toning raises the bar (or rather, the toning stick). It combines targeted body-sculpting exercises and high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba® moves to create a calorie-torching, strength training. Students learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like toning sticks to enhance rhythm and tone all their target zones, including arms, abs, glutes and thighs.

Zumbatomic® is a high-energy fitness-parties packed with specially choreographed, kid-friendly routines. It rounds out family fitness goals by giving parents a great reason to head to the gym – for themselves, for their kids, for a totally fun family experience. Zumba® for all ages… it’s a fun and easy way to burn calories!

The Physical and Health Benefits of Yoga
Yoga has been practiced for more than 5,000 years, and currently, close to 11 million Americans are enjoying its health benefits. Yoga can hardly be called a trend. Most Westernized yoga classes focus on learning physical poses, which are called asanas. They also usually include some form of breathing technique and possibly a meditation technique as well. Some yoga classes are designed purely for relaxation. But there are styles of yoga that teach you how to move your body in new and more physically challenging ways.

Stretches, tones and strengthens muscles; strengthens bones and decreases stiffness in joints; improves flexibility and ease of movement; increases endurance and respiratory efficiency; helps to improve posture and oxygenation of body tissues; and stimulates the immune system.

Creates a sense of well-being and calm; promotes relaxation and quiets the mind; helps manage and control anxiety and depression; boosts self-esteem and confidence; improves concentration and creativity; encourages self-awareness; provides experiences and techniques to help balance the various aspects of everyday life; and relaxes the nervous system.

The principal intention of yoga is to help people improve their quality of life on many levels, promoting a healthy and harmonious lifestyle.
