Dance Pizazzs Top 3 Tips on How Dancing Can Help Beat Social Anxiety

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 20, 2015

Everyone gets nervous from time to time, especially in social situations. For those who are naturally shy, gatherings can be tricky to navigate. As per Psychology Today, (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/science-and-sensibility/201212/50-ways-overcome-shyness-and-anxiety-social-gatherings), being part of a physically engaging experience can actually serve as the perfect antidote for many types of social unease.

Dance Pizazz, greater St. Louis’ funnest, friendliest ballroom dance studio, is aware of these social and health issues and wants to be part of a dancer’s strategy to overcome them. Ballroom dance lessons can offer many opportunities for personal growth and can be an excellent tool for overcoming social anxiety. (Check out our students’ individual progress checks at http://www.dance-pizazz.com.) In that vein, here are three ways in which Dance Pizazz’s Private and Group Lessons can help a dancer’s social progress and overall health:

1. Dancing = exercise. Ballroom dancing is an excellent –and fun! – workout for the mind and the body. Dancing engages our cognitive and spatial ability: both key components in developing a stronger social skill-set. Therefore, the more the dancer dances, the less anxious and more social he/she can become thanks to this workout.

2. Dancing, especially without a constant partner = increased confidence. Dance Pizazz recognizes this and encourages its dancers to learn with and through others in a safe and relaxed environment. Because practice makes perfect, both Private and Group Lessons present great opportunities for a dancer of any level to improve their craft through repetition. It’s a fact: feeling more confident in any activity can considerably reduce anxiety.

3. Social dancing = improved communication. Anyone attending a Group Lesson already has at least one thing in common: they are interested in ballroom dance. This presents a perfect icebreaker for safe mingling. Just having a basic conversation about the shared joys of dance can help anyone with their communication skills and, eventually, with their overall social competence.

Dance Pizazz is proud of its dancers’ growth on and off the dance floor! In dancing, many have developed and surpassed not only their ballroom goals, but also their social acuity.

Dance Pizazzs Top Three Ways Ballroom Dance Can Help Anyone Relax

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 27, 2015

It’s a fact: one of the best and proven ways to relieve stress is through exercise. It’s also true that it’s hard to stay relaxed in today’s world of constant actions, emotions, and interaction. According to a Harvard Health Review article (http://www.health.harvard.edu/newsletters/Harvard_Mens_Health_Watch/2011/February/exercising-to-relax), exercise – such as ballroom dancing – can help by relieving mental stress.

Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area’s funnest, friendliest dance studio (http://www.dance-pizazz.com), understands this need for relaxation to improve and maintain health and wants to share three tips on how dancing can bring about relaxation through:

1. Promoting Chemical Balance: Simply put, dancing has been proven to reduce the levels of stress hormones while stimulating the production of endorphins. These endorphins are responsible for post-workout feelings like positivity and relaxation. The more regular the exercise, the more endorphins are released to aid relaxation and regulate the body’s cycles.

2. Deepening the Mind-Body Connection: Mental stress is known to create symptoms such as muscle tenseness, cramps, rapid breathing, and even lightheadedness. Dancing regularly, though, can bring about a deeper mind-body connection by reducing stress. This knowledge is the key to maintaining good overall health and keeping negative symptoms and even diseases at bay.

3. Fun and Exercise: Ballroom dance is a stellar workout that is also fun! It allows the body to work many muscle groups in a rhythmic and repetitive fashion, which leads to more stamina and strength. It also gives dancers of any level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced) a chance to unleash their creativity. What better way to both exercise and promote relaxation than while listening to good music?

As a body becomes stronger through exercise, it can also become more relaxed. Ballroom dance can help anyone with low-to-high levels of stress achieve balance on and off the dance floor.
