Line Dancing Benefits Your Whole Body

Posted Apr 28, 2023

Step to the front, side, back, other side, then back to the front. Twirl, dip, heel-toe; don’t forget to move your hands and your hips!  

Line dancing is fun and a low impact way to engage your core to help improve coordination, balance and heart health. If you need to strengthen your muscles, line dancing engages your legs, hips, hip flexors, quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, abductors, adductors and calves. Work your arms and shoulder muscles a little bit to help with balance, if and when you’re ready. Even your brain benefits from the crossbody moves that stimulate both brain hemispheres as they work together in sync.  

Look for line dancing at WK South Wellness Center and at The Oaks of Louisiana. You’ll feel benefits in both your physical and your mental health. Classes meet for 50 minutes every week.
