Ballroom dancing reduces the risk of dementia by 76%!

 There are so many benefits of ballroom dancing for all ages, and I came across a very interesting study recently which shows that ballroom dancing reduces the risk of dementia by 76%, much more than other activities, such as playing golf or doing crosswords. One of the reasons for this is that when dancing you have to make fast decisions while also learning new skills. Of course other benefits of dancing are exercise, fun, the music, being able to engage in an activity with your partner and meeting new people. Just another reason to start dancing!
