If dancing can reverse the signs of aging in your brain, Kathi’s students should be about five years old. Seriously, several neuroscience studies compared two different forms of exercise—dancing and endurance training—undertaken by elderly volunteers for eighteen months. The results show that both can have an anti-aging effect on the brain, but only dancing corresponded to a noticeable difference in behavior. This difference is attributed to the extra challenge of learning dance routines.
Certified instructor and judge, Kathi Bobillot, practices what she preaches.
Book a private dance lesson (one person or one couple) or a semi-private lesson (two or more couples), and choose from ballroom (foxtrot, waltz, tango); Latin (salsa, chacha, rumba, samba, mambo, merengue); swing (east coast—single time and triple time, west coast); country (Texas 2-step or 10-step, cowboy cha-cha); or club style (4-count, hustle, nightclub 2-step).
