DANCING                           by -Beatrice O. Sargin

When we talk about dancing we have an ideal of the various body movements cross linked with beats and rhythm or simply the movement of the body rhythmically to create an exciting style that captivates others to create a remarkable enjoyable experience.
Contemporary dance started in the 20th century when US dancer Isadora Duncan (1878–1927) broke away from ballet and developed her own, more natural style. Contemporary dance has many different styles, some of them closely linked to music, such as jazz, rock and roll, and hip-hop.

Fitness is next to healthiness.

How Dancing is related to fitness training exercise that keeps you healthy.

Dancing improve a person’s cognitive skills at all ages since it prepares the brain for prime learning. A vigorous activity such as dancing pumps blood to the brain, giving it the glucose and oxygen it needs to function well. Apart from increasing blood flow to the brain, there is another mechanism that further improves the mental acuity of a dancer or an individual who is learning how to dance. According to studies, the hippocampus and the cerebral cortex – both of which play a role in dancing – are rewired and consequently improved with frequent use. Dancing helps to improve mental capacity since the cognitive processes are exercised in more ways than one and keeps you smarter.

How dancing keeps you fit:

-Vigorous hip hop Dancing burns about 450-500 Kcal per hour.
-According to various contemporary dance styles in relation to music, dancers look out for either light or heavy meals to fit into the tendencies for various dance performances, they also watch out their weights and also gain bones/muscles weight to their bodies.

Benefits of dancing:
- In Challenging yourself to try new things each time you dance, you'd apparently become smarter and intelligent in creating steps and ideals.
-In regards to the brains' cognitive effect, Those who participate actively daily in dancing as a routine are flexible and are spontaneously alert to their environments, Without a doubt, dancing helps one's brain jump to overdrive and as such your brains can illuminate the relationship between experience and observation.
-Dancing is also a workout for the brain and body as well, it modifies and improves balance of your heart, bones and strenght with increased energy levels as a result of constant fluxing of the hormone serotonin.
-It reduces depression and stress levels, dancers know better to "Dance first, think later".
-Dancers possess an extraordinary skill set—coordination of limbs, posture, balance, gesture, facial expression, perception, and action in sequences that create meaning in time, space, and with effort. Learning a dance genre requires discipline, persistence, engagement, auditory sensibility, visual acuity, memory, and imagination.
-Dancing integrates several brain functions at once — kinesthetic, rational, musical, and emotional — further increasing your neural connectivity.

Dancing boosts your health capabilities in the following ways:
- How Dancing helps to improve the brain's activity;
Dancers maximize cognitive function and muscle memory through practice that is why Professional dancers don’t get dizzy. Just like other games that involves muscular activities, regular aerobic training that incorporate some dance movements once in a while can help anyone maximize their brain functions. Series of practice allow dancers to achieve peak performance by blending cerebral and cognitive thought processes with muscle memory and ‘proprioception’ held in the cerebellum.

- Scientists have turned to dancers creating, doing and watching, primarily not to improve dance teaching, learning and performance. Rather the researchers find dance as a rich and multifaceted source to try to understand how the brain coordinates the body to perform complex, precise movements that express emotion and convey meaning.  Studies explore how dancers’ brains can
As a method of conveying ideas and emotions with or without recourse to sound, the language of dance draws upon similar places and education processes in the brain as verbal language. Dance feeds the brain in the process of communication. The brain does mind and consciousness, a state of mind with agency. Through dance, a person can learn about herself, including sexual, gender, ethnic, regional, national, and career identities.

- We acquire knowledge and develop cognitively because dance bulks up the brain. Consequently, dance as an art in education is a good investment in well-being. Neuroscientist Antonio Damasio points out, “Learning and creating memory are simply the process of chiseling, modeling, shaping, doing, and redoing our individual brain wiring diagrams.” The brain that dances” is changed by it.
