At The Jewel Of Art Dance Studio, we want to provide you with all of the information you need before coming and trying our San Antonio dance classes out for yourself. Here we’ve compiled a list of answers to some frequently asked questions about the art of dance itself.

dance classes san antonioAre Dance Classes Good For Your Health?

Of course the obvious answer is that any kind of exercise is ultimately good for your health. However, there are many different health benefits that come with our dance classes that may surprise you.

The art of dance is extremely beneficial for your mental health, as it boosts your overall happiness, cultivates a sense of confidence, and allows you to get lost in something that you’re passionate about.

Physically speaking, our dance classes in San Antonio can:

  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Boost stamina
  • Strengthen muscles and bones
  • Keep one healthy by preventing the development of various illnesses

In fact, the benefits you get from dance in terms of cardio are not ones you can easily receive by other forms of exercise. According to Fabio Comana, an exercise physiologist and member of the National Academy of Sports Medicine, “Dancing can give you more than traditional cardio.” He explains the five different components of fitness:

  • Muscular Strength
  • Muscular Endurance
  • Cardiovascular Endurance
  • Body Composition
  • Flexibility

While a mere run on the treadmill will provide benefits in body composition and cardiovascular endurance, engaging in dance will help in those areas combined with enhanced flexibility and muscular endurance.

dance classes san antonioCan Dance Help With Anxiety And Depression?

Yes. This comes down to a number of different factors:

  • Dance provides a way of channeling anger, fear, insecurities, and other things that, without a proper outlet, can lead to anxiety and depression.
  • The exercise you will get from our San Antonio dance classes alone can be hugely beneficial in overcoming anxiety and depression, as it releases endorphins and other “feel good” chemicals in the brain.
  • Engaging in a hobby, and learning to master your craft, goes a long way in overcoming anxiety and depression. Becoming one with the music you love through dance skills that you’ve mastered is a happy and life-affirming experience.

What Form Of Dance Should I Choose?

While it’s never a bad idea to experiment to find what form of dance is ideal for you, here is a basic guide to our various dance classes in San Antonio, so that you can get a better idea of what fits your personality, skill level, and musical preference.

  • Ballet – This is an eloquent form of dance that promotes concentration and self-control.
  • Jazz – This is a highly dynamic dance form that would be ideal for dancers who would like to incorporate a number of different dance forms.
  • Tap – This is a highly energetic and visceral dance form.
  • Vogue – Popularized by Madonna, this form of dance emphasizes fluidity.

No matter what your chosen dance form, the instructors at The Jewel Of Art Dance Studio will help you perfect it.
