The new year is coming closer to us! Have you met your body goals for the year 2018?
Did you know dance is a terrific form of exercise that burns hundreds of calories per hour.
Which dance burns the most calories you ask?
Here are the Top 5 dances that will burn the most calories per hour, to help you reach your goals!
1st Place- 450 Calories/Hour. Swing. East Coast Swing to be exact. This is basically the swing most of us know and love from movies & music videos, West Coast swing is a little more slow & sultry
2nd Place- 432 Calories/ Hour. Polka. Similar to quickstep, polka will have you bopping up and down and all around till you’re drenched in sweat, and dying of laughter from how much fun you’re having.
3rd Place-390 Calories/ Hour. Viennese Waltz- No dance captures romance, elegance, and grace like this dance. You feel like you’re flying, and never want to come down.
4th Place- 384 Calories/ Hour. West Coast Swing- It’s sultry, it’s sexy, and it doesn’t even feel like a workout, because you get so lost in the music’s beat.
5th Place- 366 Calories/ Hour. Samba. This upbeat fast-paced dance is a really great workout for your leg muscles, and gluteus maximus.
Now that you have an idea of what a great workout you’ll get in the next time you’re dancing, we hope you feel some extra motivation throughout this cold season. This one of the many reasons why we love to spend our entire day around dancing, it keeps us healthy, and in shape! It’s true, when you look better, you feel better.
