Iíll admit Iím not the greatest dancer to hit the dance floor, but I do enjoy pretending to dance well. I think everyone enjoys dancing, but many are uncertain how to actually dance or are embarrassed to try it in front of other people. Remember Ė you donít have to dance in front of a crowd or on a stage to have a good time and get great benefits from your impromptu performance.

Dancing is Great Exercise

We all need lots of exercise and most of us donít get enough. Cranking up the tunes or plugging in your ear buds is all you really need to get started on a fitness routine. Dance around your room to your favorite tunes where nobody can see you. You can work on your dance moves and gain confidence with your skills if youíre still uncertain. You can even choreograph your own dances just for fun and believe me, after dancing for thirty minutes or an hour, youíll feel great, although you might need a shower.

Dancing is Relaxing

With so much on your plate, it can be easy to get overwhelmed and stressed about various things. When you start dancing however, you can make all of that stress totally disappear. Start out with something simple and before you know it, youíll be having fun and feeling great without all the pressure and weight of your day bringing you down. Personally, I find that singing along (loudly) also helps to lift the spirits.

Dancing Makes You Happy

Itís hard to feel angry, sad, frustrated or blah when youíre dancing to a crazy tune. Find old-school dance tunes by Vanilla Ice or MC Hammer. Ace of Base and Sir Mix-a-lot are good choices as well for a bit of crazy dancing. If youíre really good, you can even spend the afternoon learning how to do the correct moves to Thriller by Michael Jackson. Itís hard to feel rotten when youíre doing wild pelvic thrusts.

Dancing Keeps You Lose

There is exercise and there is flexibility. Keeping your muscles up to par is one thing, but all that exercise without proper stretching can actually hurt you in the long run. Dancing can help you stretch and stay limber if you do a good warm-up and then cool-down. Working up to high kicks and the splits in your dance routines will also allow your muscles to stretch and your flexibility will grow as well.

Dancing Brings You Together

When you arenít afraid to head out on the dance floor with your friends, you can have so much more fun. School dances and parties are great places to show off your skills, or at least do a basic boogie without being embarrassed. The more confident you are, the less you worry about how you look and the more you focus on having a great time with your friends Ė and maybe meeting a new friend or two along the way.

I can only dance after weeks of relentless practice.

In other words, only in musicals.

I love dancing!!! I honestly don't know if I'm good or bad at it, and I'm REALLY out of practice. I don't think I've danced since my freshman year. Which is when I caught the eyes of my ex-boyfriend so I must have been something good to look at lol.

I'm a horrible dancer, my friends tell me otherwise but I really can't dance. XD The best I can do is kinda a tangoish thing. Then when rock songs come on at a dance, I hop around in a hand-holding circle and crash into other people. Man that was awkward at the Homecoming dance when I knocked myself over into that guy I reaaallly don't like... *facepalm*

I just got back from a good old fashioned rock 'n' roll party.

Jiving and Hucklebucking all night. ^_^

I'm horrible at both, when I dance I look like a kangeroo that's having a seizure of some sort. But I msut admit it's the most fun I've had in weeks.

If the music's right and you're with nice people it doesn't matter how miserably you fail at dancing, it's just fun either way.
