fitness dance, also known as “beat-based” fitness becomes big business in gyms and dance schools and a hot favourite among celebrities. Gwyneth Paltrow has her new slim shape and toned for a fitness routine dance created for her by her personal trainer she shares with Madonna.
You may yet be at the level of Madonna fitness – or if you want to be – but a combination of dance and exercise are a great idea. The whole exercise is easier if you do it with other people to a dance beat – and when the dance is exercise – it becomes a pleasure.
There are several ways of combining dance and exercise. Ballroom Dancing – fuelled by the recent reality TV programs that are household names in dance event – enjoying a renaissance in England and Europe. This may seem elegant, but there is no easy solution – to practice ballroom dancing is a heart rate training. The posture is improved and the balance and flexibility. There is no doubt that strenuous exercise – but in the most graceful and fluid.
Line dancing is considered low impact, but it certainly has the ability to get your heart rate. Forget the old country and the image of the West – line dancing has expanded its horizons. The music can be soul, swing, Latin, jazz nightclub town and even the waltz and foxtrot can be done in one line – no partner needed.
