We move other body to a rhythm throughout the day; not deliberately most of the time, be it a swaying our heads to the music from our earphones during a commuting to work, be it a occasional wiggling of our bodies to a tune working in our heads during that coveted lunch break, be it an impatient tapping of the heels, or be a little jiggle when you meet your partner at the end of a day’s hard labor. All of these instances can be point out to our intrinsic urge to tune our bodies to a rhythm; to relax; to be more. We, as a direct result of our mundane work ethic, tend to disregard or ignore this in built need. We are compelled to mechanize. This is indeed an unhealthy practice in terms of both body and mind. Exercise both mental and physical is the key to living a stress free and healthy life. What better way is there to exercise these twin elements in a more fun way than to find time and a place to sway, twirl, tack, and pounce to some nice appropriate music?
What should I do?
It depends on what you want to do. If you are simply looking for stress reliever which isn’t yoga, then taking occasional adult dance classes in Maitland would be agreeable to you: you need not focus on a particular style per say; let’s call it freestyle. Your instructor will maintain a routine which isn’t too intricate. You are encouraged to tell him/her what you required; if you are not into pursuing social dancing per say; then there are various other less complicated exercises available to indulge at your request.
On the other hand, if you the kind who is keen on a social dancing curriculum, if you are a little too serious about dancing, you are accommodated. They are plenty of instructors and institutions who cater to your needs: Latin American, hip-hop, western, salsa etc. Adult dance classes are all the range these days. You get your young couples, work buddies, housewives, and old-timers. It’s a good recreational activity. May it’s time you consider it too.
Where to find?
Ask a friend to recommend a place to you if he’s the type to dabble in these things on and off. You can also skim through that youth magazine collection getting dusty on your office coffee table. Best option is to do a bit of digging on the internet. This doesn’t have to be ‘digging’ at all. Internet will overwhelm you with names and places once you type in a few key words. Even after considering all the factors such as distance and cost, still you would be able to find a decent place which is worthy of your pretty penny. Don’t hesitate.
