Shall we dance?

Hello people!

Here I am again :)

I can say that one the best ways to discover other cultures is to see how the people dance!

I'm a real dancing addicted person! I used to dance waltz, rumba for 2 years, salsa for 5 years and a few times I tried Irish, Schottish and  Bretagne dancing styles.

The last 5 years have been full of tango (and it seems that will remain the case till the end of my life :)). The tango's like a drug :P

I wonder, who else "into the dancing life" :). Why do you like dancing? What was the reason for taking dance classes?

And what about your nationall types of dancing? Can you dance one?

According to a study in The New England Journal of Medicine, dancing may boost your memory and prevent you from developing dementia as you get older. Science reveals that aerobic exercise can reverse volume loss in the hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls memory. The hippocampus naturally shrinks during late adulthood, which often leads to impaired memory and sometimes dementia.

Greetings Nadezhda!

What a captivating issue and grabbing title!

Probably, I am not such a great fan of dancing as you are... but I am writing because, despite of spending less time than I would like, I am in love also, with all the background and feelings involved on it!

Your topic made me think. I am strongly imaginative, so, I was picturing on my mind people from different countries shaking their bodies while listening their local music. Defintely, there are uncountable number of dance styles,  and many different reasons why people dance. 

But in overall, dance removes inhibitions. let people socialize,  be relaxed, excited, happy, disconnected and also on fit! 

I agree with the statement that looking at people dancing, you can know a lot about their culture. Even their inner personality.

I am from Spain. So, as you well know, here our typical dance is "Flamenco". I don't like to much (Perhaps, due to I don't like the music neither), but I must recognise when I was a child, I took some amazing Flamenco lessons. Have you ever tried? It is a very sensitive and powerful one!

I used to dance Salsa, Bachata and Kizomba. However, lately I have not find so much time for it. Would you know how my friends and I call this plan? SALSATHERAPY! As soon as I have more leissure time, I will go weekly again!

And who knows.. maybe I would try to dance Tango.. I always wanted to do it!
