Dancing is a very common form of working out or just expressing yourself. Everyone dances whether it's in a class, on stage, at an event, or just in a bedroom. People may be embarrassed of their moves or they may think they can't dance but let's face it, if you can walk you can dance. There are different styles of dance and so many ways to move the body that no one could ever get sick of it or be stuck doing the same thing. Here are some reasons why everyone should take a dance class:

1. It's great exercise

No matter what kind of dance you do it is the best way to get your body in shape. You become flexible, develop muscles and a strong core, and you are always moving. Professional athletes take ballet to gain strength because it's such a useful workout. Believe it or not, when dancing you can work out AND have fun!

2. It's a stress reliever

When you get into a room and you can just move and dance to the rhythm of your favorite song, it is a huge stress reliever. It really helps to take time out of the day to take a class and just have fun and be happy and free.

3. You can do it at any age

You can start learning dance at age 2 or age 90 and that's what is so great about it. As long as your body is in good shape, dance is something you can do forever. It can be done at your leisure and your own pace. There aren't many activities and sports out there like that and that's what makes dance so unique and special.

4. You can start dance at any level know matter how old you are

Some people start dance at two years old and are professionals by age 20. Some don't start until adulthood or even after age 65. Age doesn't matter. Unlike most sports, you can start dance at any age and still be able to do it as a career or professionally.

5. There are so many dance styles

There are so many different styles and kinds of dance to choose from that there is no excuse not to like it. If someone tries ballet and wants to dance to faster more upbeat songs, there are so many options and classes to take.

It is impossible to not like any form of dance whatsoever and if anything was stopping you from taking a class before, here are just a few reasons of why it's never to late to start.
