Seniors Get Toned Bodies From Line Dancing

What is Line Dancing

Line dancing is a choreographed set of steps by a group of people in one or more lines or rows, all facing each other or in the same direction and executing the steps at the same time. There is music with a beat that sets the timing for the steps.

There are no dance partners that are touching each other during the dance.

This form of dancing has been around for quite some time and there are several types of it being practiced by several different groups of people.

How to Get Started

If you are a beginner, you probably know friends who are participating in local classes that you may join.  You may also find beginners classes by doing a quick Google search on the subject.  

If you don't find the class that you like, don't give up.  There are great teaching DVDs with good music, that are available.  You have a choice of Hip Hop or Country and Western DVDs.

Joining local classes is a good way for older adults to stay active.

Why Should You Start Line Dancing

Although my favorite exercise is the go to the gym type, I recognize that this is not for everybody.  Line dancing is certainly a way that you may attain a toned body.  Like any exercise program, a healthy diet will also play a major role in building your preferred body.

Line dancing is fun and is popular.  This makes it seem like it's not exercise, even though it is.  This is a cardio exercise which, if energetically done, will raise your heart rate.  This improves stamina and gets you in better physical shape.

Knowing how to line dance also keeps you involved with your friends at social events.  When you don't need a partner you can dance by yourself on any line dance music.

Just because you are retired and have reached seniority doesn't mean that you have to stop living.  This is the time when you are available to do things that you have always wanted to do.  Line dancing is one way to keep you in the game with your younger friends.

Don't put it off any longer, its time to start.  You will have much fun and be getting the exercise that your body so sorely needs.
