Study on Dance + Brain Health

19 September 2017

I wanted to share this important article that describes how dancing can reverse the signs of aging in the brain better than any other kind of exercise. I appreciate how this article takes the results of a very dense study and translates it into an easy-to-read (and share) piece of writing.

Excerpt from the article:

“I believe that everybody would like to live an independent and healthy life, for as long as possible. Physical activity is one of the lifestyle factors that can contribute to this, counteracting several risk factors and slowing down age-related decline. I think dancing is a powerful tool to set new challenges for body and mind, especially in older age.”

Here’s the link to the entire article.
