When is the last time you put on your dancing shoes?
When is the last time you had a Family Dance Party?
When is the last time you danced – like no one was watching?
Whether you are dancing with your beloved or dancing in the shower when no one is looking, new science indicates that it has a significant role in health and longevity!
Dancing may well be the most powerful anti-aging activity you can add in 2018!
Here are a few reasons that you may want to dance your way through this year and beyond:
1. Dancing Makes You Smarter–
Researchers at the International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound Research at McGill University in Montreal recently reported that long term dance training changes both gray and white matter structure in the brain. Known as brain plasticity, this ability to rewire the brain’s circuits on an ongoing basis is critical to preservation of cognitive function especially as we get older.
2. Dancing Improves Balance–
Loss of balance and falling are a major problem in older individuals, but everyone benefits from better sense of balance. Regular participation in social dancing has been shown to help maintain balance.
3. Dancing Improves Strength and Endurance–
This is of course true for all ages, but especially important for older individuals when muscle mass naturally begins to diminish.
There are so many scientifically proven reasons to dance your way through life!
A new study, published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, shows that older people who routinely partake in physical exercise can reverse the signs of aging in the brain, and dancing has the most profound effect.
The most effective method of dance for happiness and longevity? Social Dance!
Jonathan Skinner, Lecturer in Social Anthropology at the University of Anthropology and History at Queen’s, Studied the effects of social dancing amongst older people.
Dr Skinner said: “I have found that social dancing leads to a continued engagement with life – past, present, and future – and holds the promise for successful ageing. It contributes to the longevity of the dancers, giving them something to enjoy and focus upon – to live for. It alleviates social isolation and quite literally helps take away the aches and pains associated with older age.
One of the main principles of the Vital Longevity Institute and the Vitalign System is that of Engagement. In order to live a happy and healthy life- one must remain engaged with life. Dance is now proving to be one of the most effective ways to engage.
The Vitalign System is designed to help you get clear about the things that matter to you most. It is also designed to help you make rapid- permanent and positive changes once you have that clarity.

Reset your life clock and enjoy lifelong health, wealth and happiness!
The Bee Gees were on to something when they sang- “You should be dancing” – David Bowie had it right when he sang- “Let’s Dance”- and The Music Factory was ahead of science when they sang “Everybody Dance Now”!
Ok all you wall flowers… Let’s dance!
