About our instructor AnaE
I have had passion for dancing and exercise since I began to walk. I absolutely love teaching Zumba classes and seeing the progress in others. Every class feels like a party, while getting fitter and healthier. I am a licensed Zumba teacher since November 2019.
The benefits of dance
Dancing really does lift your spirits (diminish depression) and reduces stress.
If you are nervous about falling as you get older, some dance lessons might help you to get better balance and ease your worries. Studies have shown that tango dancing can improve balance in aging adults. Dancing requires a lot of fast movement and good posture, so frequent dancing will help you stabilize and gain better control of your body.
Weekly dance program could improve physical performance and increase energy levels among adults.
A dance class is the perfect setting to make new friends and branch out socially.
Maintaining positive relationships may just rank up there with healthy eating and exercise. Being socially engaged leads to increased happiness, reduced stress, and a stronger immune system.
