Are you thinking about learning flamenco? If this idea is around your head, go ahead! If you know, but you have not practiced it for a while now, we encourage you to resume the activity. And if you usually dance by hobby or profession, great!
You can not imagine the benefits of dancing flamenco for your health. Therefore, if you are looking for a physical activity and the gym does not motivate you enough: do not give more laps and join flamenco dance classes!
Beyond elegance and art, dancing flamenco is a practice that improves physical fitness and mental state. Although it seems incredible, this activity helps to increase flexibility, have more resistance and keep the joints to a point, something that is great to avoid ‘rust‘ and prevent future ailments. You’re cheering, right? Well, read on and discover the benefits of dancing flamenco and how well your body will feel.
In flamenco dancing, the hands and feet exercise different functions, that is, each part does a different thing, but both have to be well coordinated to give meaning to the corporal expression. In order to coordinate both parts of the body, concentration and repetition are needed, therefore, the practice of flamenco is ideal for coordinating work.
Dancing as a regular exercise is an activity that allows you to burn 200 to 400 calories. As if you do sports, dancing flamenco also sweats and, sometimes a lot, depending on the type of dance. In addition, by the movements and demands of each style, the muscles of the legs, arms and abdomen are strengthened, while toning buttocks and thighs, avoiding the feared flaccidity.
Therefore, eliminate toxins, burn calories, strengthen and tone muscles, so you get to stay in shape and all enjoying flamenco art. It’s amazing!
You will have heard or read that exercising is good for the mind, right? Well, pay attention to what we are going to tell you: dancing flamenco is also important and we will explain why!
Another benefit of dancing flamenco is that it is an excellent stimulus to have a good body perception. When dancing, the mind has to exercise to remember all the steps (memory on) and, in addition, the ear has to be careful to follow the rhythm.
In addition, if you decide to learn to dance several flamenco styles, your hearing will be fine-tuned over time, since you will have to learn to differentiate between the different musical styles to know exactly what you have to do in each moment.
Another benefit of dancing flamenco directly affects your mood. Do you think it’s exaggerated? Well, it is not! Think of a ‘zapateao‘. That effort will help you to eliminate stress, your bad mood or any negative feeling that you have, therefore, you will feel much better after having a flamenco dance.
In short, if you want to feel good and give your body a good dose of vitality, go for flamenco dancing! See how our artists do it in the show they perform every day at El Palacio Andaluz in Seville.
In our tablao, we also have a multipurpose room where we celebrate all kinds of activities related to flamenco, such as sevillanas classes or castanet workshops, among others. Everything is starting!
