Science confirms that music and dancing does make you happy! I don't know about you, but who couldn’t do with a bit more happiness? When we dance and listen to music out brains release endorphin hormones which trigger neurotransmitters that create a feeling of comfort, relaxation and fun. The power of music and dance is a wonderful thing.
Dancing is an inherently social activity (except for those of us who like to dance alone in our room holding a hairbrush as a microphone) but while music and dance not only serve as social glue, they are also very beneficial for our physical and mental health.
The truth is that dance is not only an excellent therapeutic resource, a study at Deakin University revealed that dance has a very positive effect on our daily lives.
At LifeDock we understand the power of movement to music and the effects it can have on physical and mental health, particularly with elderly and vulnerable people. As a result we have decided to give our On Your Feet course a real shakeup. What does this mean for the future of the course? It's going to be bigger and better, but most importantly, we are pivoting to a more dance and music focused experience.
We want to make this course more accessible, more joyful and a great experience for everyone who takes part. Click for more information on our all of our courses here.
