Get up and dance

It doesn’t matter if you’ve had dance classes or freestyle for nothing but the fun of it. Dance is beneficial to all who participate in it.

Dance is not meant to be something that is only enjoyed by those that “know how to do it”. All you have to do is simply let your body move whatever way it wants to. Let the music get you.

Don’t let the fear of what you think others will think about you stop you from having fun and dancing. Let yourself feel free to be yourself. Use dance as an expression of that person that you keep hidden inside and “dance like no one is watching”. Your creativity, health, and mood will thank you for it.
