Well I know dancing makes me happier, as anyone who has every tapped their feet to Dancing Cheek to Cheek or swayed to the rhythm of Hungry Eyes will attest to. Recently I have discovered that it is a marvellous way of de-stressing too. Go on, take an hour out of your hectic life and join a dance class, it is possibly the best thing you could ever do in today’s hectic society. It’s also been proved through research that dancing can improve your brain function.
Actually though the wonderful attributes of dancing is not why I decided to pen this missive but rather because when surfing the internet over the weekend reading up on dancing and its effects, I found a lovely article entitled ‘People Who Grow Up Dancing are Happier, Less Stressed, Smarter’, which was the inspiration to share the above with you but really it was about the gif that was embedded half way through the article that caught my eye; the amazing Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray in the studio together in a scene in the movie Dirty Dancing.
It’s certainly worth a read just to see that Dirty Dancing magical moment!
