Every Mom Needs Merengue

Have you ever wondered what kind of dance someone is doing? If you’re new to Merengue and have seen how amazing it looks, then you’ve probably already asked yourself these questions. What most people don’t know is that learning the Merengue is easy.

The Merengue begins as a rhythm, which your body feels. It then becomes a musical score and your body moves with the flow of the sound… 
Merengue to release the tensions of daily life but the benefits are far more than just that! By learning the Merengue, you learn the culture behind the music, the people who poured their heart and soul into it. The benefits are endless…

Social: Working with other people. Learning to dance this particular dance requires someone teaching you. Though many of the dances are choreographed for one dancer you will find that having two brings the heartache out even more. 

Health: Exercising of any kind is always beneficial to your body and overall health. Dancing allows you start out slow using your entire body, or if you are looking for more of a workout you will find the beat can be changed as easily as that next step. 

Confidence: Learning anything new creates confidence, learning to dance and dance well can bring you great pride and joy. By boosting your confidence in dancing, you will find that you have more confidence in everything else you do. 

Learning a new skill: By learning how to dance, you are keeping not only your body but also your brain active as well. The brain is as much a muscle as any other parts of your body and learning the Merengue gives it a great workout. 

Exercise: You use every muscle in your body, from the steps you take with your feet to the movement of your legs, hips and working up to your chest, arms and head. Dancing can also be attributed to lowering blood glucose levels and helps the heart pump but more freely throughout your body. 

Non-verbal communication: You may not realize how much your body truly tells people how you really feel. By the sway of your body, you express what you feel more than anything else

Meeting new people is always a good thing for people of all ages. We start out even from birth needing the touch and feel of others around us. Studies have shown that people who are outgoing are healthier, lead more productive lives. 

By combining entertainment and fun, you get what your body needs without realizing it. Also any form of entertainment that requires more than just putting in a movie is heart healthy.
