Dancing is one of the most enjoyable activities to do and one of the most beneficial, too! You can do it anytime, anywhere, and for zero cost! What's more, it helps you excercise, connect with other people, relieve stress, and a lot more!

But did you know that it can also make you smarter? Dancing combines complex movements, creative expression, and interpersonal communication; it also requires to learn new steps constantly. By doing it, you stimulate many areas of your brain—kinesthetic, rational, emotional, and musical that increases the neural connectivity which keeps many brain pathways active, and also generate new ones at the same time that helps your brain be fit and healthy!

Plus, people who regularly dance also need to recognize steps and patterns which make their brains think about what their next move will be. They're required to make prompt decisions, which helps in improving their cognitive and critical thinking skills. 

So if you're working to improve your physical, mental, and emotional health while having fun, dancing is your best bet!
