Dancing does help you lose weight if you make it part of your diet and exercise plan. Â You may not shed the weight you want if you dance at a club once a week, but regular dance classes or exercise programs that incorporate dance can help you shed some unwanted pounds.
When you work up a sweat dancing, you burn energy and calories. Dancing for a half an hour can burn 150-200 calories, depending on the type of dancing performed.
Hip hop and Zumba dancing burn a lot of calories. Some women report an hour Zumba class providing 350-400 calories being burned. While this form of dance does require you to break a sweat and continue moving in order to burn calories, it can be done if you have the energy for it.
Implementing a regular routine of dance for at least three to five days a week can help you lose weight.
Dance is fun and lively. Â Most people who enjoy dance will never quit because they never grow bored of doing it. Â Dance classes are a great way to meet others and provide accountability in your weight loss efforts. Â Grab a friend and do it together! Â The rewards and benefits of dancing can be more than just weight loss.
Your heart will thank you for continuing to move and groove on the dance floor.
