Health works and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Every activity that makes you move will improve your health and improve your entire quality of life. Whether it’s pole dancing or rugby movement will make you healthier.
Here at healthy kids dance then we think of dancing as the best and most fun form of exercise – but that is because dancing is what we love, we also think that kids have a natural desire to move to music that does not take much to encourage.
Just simply putting on some music while you play with your children will step up the dancing until you are all enjoying yourselves. From that moment on when you catch each others eyes as you dance together you will be healthier, because you will be happier.
The equation of::
music + dancing = fun + healthy
really is as straight forwards as that if you don’t believe us then try it out!
