There are a large number of educational and growth activities in our region and I would like to say thanks to the people who give up their time for often little return to provide these activities – activities such as martial arts, tutoring, art, sport, horticulture, and the one in which I have been interested for the last nine years: South American Latin dancing.

Dancing is great for adults of any age, providing fitness and mental training and social interaction. Studies have shown that dancing is one of the best activities to develop a coordinated body, and defend against health problems including dementia.

There is great balance between male and female in dancing.

A big thankyou to the Latin dance teachers in our area including Robert, Leyla, Simeon, Tim, Daniella, Kaaran, Eric, Chantelle, Martin, Heather, Jan, Tom, Adrienne, and many more who regularly give their time to create a great dance scene, lessons and parties, teaching salsa, tango, bachata, cha cha cha, rueda and many more styles.

Dancing improves one’s fitness, agility, balance, and is good for surf training when there are no waves. It has the sensation of surfing without water.  Some persistence is required when learning to master the basics and then it is into the advanced moves.

Worth giving it a try, in my opinion.
