Unlike medical journals, I will admit, up front and out loud when there are biases in my writing. This short article is about dancing and its brain benefits. Body benefits are obvious, so let’s talk brain benefits.

I have a family of dancers so of course it is obvious to me that anything (and everything) to do with dancing is of great benefit to you physically, mentally, and emotionally. There is my admission of bias. Several studies have reported the benefits of coordinated physical activity (movement that takes thought) such as dancing to prevent brain deterioration.
