Dancing lifts your mood, it makes you flexible, it improves your lungs and heart condition, but do you know that this fun activity can even help you lose weight? Yes, that is right!
If you do not like a mundane workout regime, then dance can be your saviour.
Dance is an art form that has evolved over centuries and has now become a social pass time. But this activity is even good for your health and can help you shed maximum calories. As per a study, a person weighing 47 kilos can burn 240 calories by performing high energy dance for an hour. So, if dancing is your thing, include this incredible activity in daily routine.
Here are 4 forms of dance that can help you lose weight quickly.
Freestyle
In freestyle dancing, you are not required to follow any steps and specific body movements. Freestyle dancing is mostly performed on fast beat music where you have to make spontaneous movements. This dance form helps to make you flexible and shed a good amount of calories.
If you perform freestyle dancing to upbeat music for 30 minutes then you will burn 180 calories.
Salsa
If you are planning to shed kilos along with your partner then salsa is an excellent choice. This sensual and sexy, Latin American dance form helps to torch maximum calories. Salsa is more about swaying, bending and swirling, which makes your body flexible. If performed properly then doing salsa for an
hour can help you burn 420 calories.
