Here in Marlboro, New Jersey --IT'S COLD!!
2014 is bringing us some of the coldest weather to hit this region in almost 20 years. If you're finding it too cold (and slippery) to walk, jog, or ride your bicycle for exercise, The Quick, Quick Slow Ballroom Dance Studio provides social dancing in Marlboro, NJ. Our studio is warm and our spicy blend of Rumba, Salsa and Merengue music will leave you feeling like you are in a tropical paradise instead of a frozen wasteland.
Dancing is good for your body, mind, and spirit:
It is a great exercise that tones your whole body, increases your stamina, improves your posture and burns calories.
Whenever you learn something new, it creates new neural pathways in your brain. Scientists believe that this is important in preventing or delaying diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Do you know how you feel when a great song comes on the radio while you’re driving? It lifts your spirits. In fact, it probably makes you feel like dancing!
Marian Simpson, a retired dance instructor and president of the National Dance Association says that “Dancing is a great activity for people age 50 and older because you can vary the level of physical exertion so easily.” Jonathan Skinner, a Lecturer in Social Anthropology studied the effects of social dancing among older people and concluded that “social dancing leads to a continued engagement with life – past, present, and future – and holds the promise for successful aging. It contributes to the longevity of the dancers, giving them something to enjoy and focus upon – to live for. It alleviates social isolation and quite literally helps take away the aches and pains associated with older age.”
No matter what your age, dancing is fun! So if the wicked winter weather is curtailing your outdoor exercising, or if this is the year you are going to get in shape, but you can't stand the thought of running on a treadmill like a hamster on a wheel, or, if you just want to have a good time, the Quick, Quick, Slow Dance Studio is the place you should be.
