About Ballroom Health

The Ballroom Health Dance Studio has been teaching Ballroom, Latin & Ballroom Line and Group Dance to the adult population of Halton and Peel regions for over 7 years.

Our studio is located in Norval Ontario on Winston Chuchill Blvd, at the Halton and Peel Region border.  Our instructors have been dancing and teaching competitively for over 5 years and have been taught themselves by some of the best in the business

 

We teach both couples and singles classes separately and also provide a Ballroom fundamentals class that deals with the basics of Ballroom Dance for the novice or beginner.


We stress having a good time, but also make learning the technical aspects of Ballroom and Latin dance both enjoyable and educational.

 

When you complete our basic couples classes, for example, you will have an understanding of the basic syllabus for each of the 8 Ballroom standard and latin dances.

 

We even have a competitive group that participates in DanceSport competitions each year and have placed both 1st or 2nd place in the Canadian Nationals several years in a row.

Ballroom & Latin dancing releases endorphins, or feel good chemicals into your blood stream. This means that even a little dancing can improve your mood. A long stressful and tense day at work or school can be balanced with just an hour of dance. Still, dancing can do more than just cure depression, improve fitness or help you lose weight. Ballroom dancing is good for your brain. In fact, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that ballroom dancing can diminish the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's because it is both a physical and social activity that requires a certain degree of memorization. Dancing also helps strengthen muscles and build bone mass which can help prevent osteoporosis.

 

The head of research at the Alzheimer's Society, Dr. Susanne Sorensen, indicates that complex brain activity can help build up a brain reserve that helps protect people from Alzheimer's disease later in life. What you may not have known is that the results of a twenty-one year research study, The Einstein Aging Study that was de-scribed in the June 19, 2003 New England Journal of Medicine, found a significant association between ballroom dancing and the lowered risk of dementia.
