Why Choose a Dance Fitness Class?

 

As a dancer, the whole body (physical and psychological) needs to be in top condition in order to reduce the risk of injury, enhance performance, and ensure you are able to dance long into your 90s!

 

Overall fitness needs to be improved. Your social dance classes such as Ballroom, Latin and Salsa will not make your fit on their own.

 

A healthy dancer is one who is in a state of being ‘well’ in both body and mind.

 

A physically fit dancer is one who has the ability to meet the demands of a specific physical task at an optimal level.

While research indicates that some dance styles require certain elements of fitness more explicitly than others, in a well-rounded dance training program, it is necessary to consider all the components of fitness. 

The components of fitness are:

  • Aerobic fitness – associated with moderate, longer-term levels of activity.

  • Anaerobic fitness – associated with high intensity, maximal, short bursts of activity.

  • Muscle endurance – the ability of a muscle to produce continuous movement.

  • Strength – the ability of a muscle to produce a maximal force on one occasion.

  • Power – the explosive (speed-related) aspect of strength.

  • Flexibility – the range of motion at a joint in association with the pliability of a muscle.

  • Neuromuscular coordination – associated with balance, agility, coordination and skill.

  • Body composition – the make-up of body weight by percentage of muscle and fat.

  • Rest – a period of no activity, to allow for recovery and regeneration.
