Balance and Ballroom Dancing

September 8, 2014

Did you know that you can boost balance with ballroom dancing?  In a recent article published in Reuters, it is discussed that you need “postural balance to avoid falls”.  A study was conducted with residents of a nursing home using a program of ballroom dancing lessons for one group and comparing to a sedentary group.  “During the 12-week study period, those in the sedentary group had about the same rate of falls, but among the dance program subjects there was only a single fall.  Writing that: “sedentary elderly people living in long-term institutions can improve their balance via a ballroom dancing program,” the study authors submit that: “This activity improved balance and reduced the number of falls in this elderly population.”  This type of “therapy” can reduce the risk of falls and breaks.
