How Ballroom and Latin Dancing Build Core Strength

How Ballroom and Latin Dancing Build Core Strength

The wide variety of ballroom and Latin dancing—waltz, Foxtrot, mambo, cha-cha, rumba, swing, salsa, etc.—showcases not only how the human body moves, but how dancing can command and reinforce strength. Ballroom and Latin dancing also promote longevity. When you look at the career span of a ballerina versus a ballroom dancer, the latter is significantly longer. In addition to enhanced posture and a full-body workout, dancing also promotes balance; something vital as people age.
