Many people today are better equipped than ever before to deal with life’s challenges and difficulties. We live longer, enjoy more leisure time, and have access to the world’s knowledge at the touch of a button. Through dance, we can develop spatial awareness, become less clumsy and pay more attention to others sharing our space. We all naturally love music! Whether it’s soft and soothing or a lively tune, we feel it both physically and emotionally. It has been said about Music that, “Music is the shorthand of emotion.” (Leo Tolstoy) and “Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” (Confucius). Similarly, about Dance it has been said that “Dancers are the messengers of the gods.” (Martha Graham) and “Everything in the universe has rhythm. Everything dances.” (Maya Angelou).

Music and Dance are the essential nature of mankind. So, for the benefit of such persons here are a few benefits of these splendid activities. Music and dance increase intelligence and they are great stress removers. Music also improves the ability of higher-level thinking, so the discipline of music and dance brings discipline to life. They can give us great self-satisfaction and self confidence, what’s more they have social, emotional, and spiritual benefits and give happiness to life. Music develops abstract reasoning necessary for academic success and mathematics and science. Music and Dance can transport their practitioners and audience to a state of bliss akin to Union with God or Nirvana. Dance has great health benefits. Dance builds endurance and stamina, releases toxins through sweating, may lower blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels and reduce heart rate and also help in weight loss.

Dance could be better than Gym Exercise because, gym exercises and other physical fitness routines are monotonous and, therefore, boring. They are like playing football without a ball! While dance moves are interesting and creative. What’s more dance gives happiness, reduces stress and teaches us a new art of living. Furthermore dance routines help build strong and flexible muscles with graceful body and movements. In fact, some forms of dance, like Zumba, burn more calories than Gym routines. Last but not least dance is a great way of socializing. It gives feeling of brotherhood/sisterhood. In dance one has to synchronize with other participants and it thus gives understanding of each other. Some dances like Waltz and Tango are great for socializing. While Gym routines build specific body parts, dance is good for the whole body. Final observation, for the most lucky people and artists music and dance can also bring name, fame and riches, that is success in life.
