"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."
~James H. West

Dance! Dance! Dance!

Lisa Cutforth - Monday, December 08, 2008


I went to the Rio-Rhythmics Christmas party last night!  What a ball ☺!  Everyone was dressed in white as is the Brazilian tradition.  The food was fabulous and the vibe was electric! 


There is something so invigorating about Latin Dancing!  I get such a thrill from it I feel like I am high!  Maybe it is the music, maybe it’s the excitement of dancing with someone or the effect of all that blood rushing around your body, whatever it is, IT FEELS GREAT!


Did you know?

  • Music improves serotonin levels making you feel happier.
  • Music can help you relax: “Half an hour of music produces the same effect as 10 milligrams of Valium.”  R. Bahr, Director of Coronary Care, St. Agnes Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.
  • Dancing is so good for the memory and mind it has a preventative effect on Alzheimers disease!
  • Dancing burns calories, tones your muscles and is a great way of getting fit!

 Some dance places I have tried out!
