Zumba Fitness Tip: Dance Away Dementia

“Shake, rattle and roll – and you just might protect your brain as you get older. A groundbreaking study reported by the New England Journal of Medicine a few years ago showed that dancing reduced the risk of various forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s, vascular, and mixed types. The researchers attributed this benefit to the finding that dance is not purely physical; it also requires a lot of mental effort. This shed light on the belief that dancing is a mental exercise as well as a physical one.”
