Exercise and discipline doesn’t always have to go hand in hand.  Exercise can be enjoyable!  Recent studies shows that dancing not only burns a lot of calories, but it also reduces stress and it’s fun because you are not counting reps or keeping count so put on your ‘boogie boogie” slippers, grab a dust cloth or mop and get to movin! 

Dancing is a total body workout so if you dance 3 times per week you could lose as much as 20 pounds in a year!  You will be improving your balance and boosting brainpower and who doesn’t need that?

You don’t have to be a talented dancer with a lot of rhythm or even very young, Latin dances such as the cha-cha revs up the calorie burning and makes your tummy tighter.

Try dancing the Salsa or doing Zumba to shed even more of those stubborn pounds.  Check out these adorable dancers from Ku’umba Academy who performed Sunday at the MidAtlantic Wine+Food Festival and take notice of the woman in the back.

Dance and dust to drop the pounds, get super sexy legs, banish back fat and bingo wings and you’ll also get the housework completed sooner!  

Enjoy the rest of your day.
