3. It can lead to better sex!
You may be one of those people who loves to cut loose any time you hit a dance floor. But maybe you’ve been doing your best moves behind closed doors out of feelings of shyness or embarrassment. Taking a dance class isn’t just great for your body, it’s a great way to loosen up and lose your feelings of self-consciousness, and it can even improve your sex life! Shedding those feelings of inhibition will also bring a sense of fun to your workout routine if you’re feeling stuck in a rut.

4. It can put you in The Zone.
Anyone who loves to dance can tell you about reaching a state of “flow” when they shake their booty. So what is “flow”? “Flow is a concept in positive psychology (originally proposed by Hungarian researcher Mihály Csíkszentmihályi),” explains Walters. “Flow is an optimal state of such absolute focus and effort that time temporarily ceases to exist, one ‘loses themselves’ to the task at hand. One example of flow is the ‘high’ many runners experience out on the road.” That’s right—it’s a “high” that doesn’t involve coffee or cocktails and that sheds calories and keeps your body fit. What’s not to love?
