It only takes one to tango!

No need to feel like a ball of nerves trying to make sure your coordination is right to impress your partner. You can dance by yourself and it is just as much (maybe even more) fun. All you literally need is your self, nothing more, nothing less.

Mood booster!

It improves your mood, yes it does! The music affects the brain and when the body exerts itself, endorphins are released. According to Endorphines: Natural Pain and Stress Fighters (1996-2019), in addition to decreased feelings of pain, secretion of endorphins leads to feelings of euphoria, modulation of appetite, release of sex hormones, and enhancement of the immune response. With high endorphin levels, we feel less pain and fewer negative effects of stress.

Do you accept the challenge?

This is a fun way to take care of yourself. What are you waiting for? Put on your favorite music and do your thang!
