Dance to Keep Your Brain Sharp

During the next few months, we will offer some ideas that are considered helpful to keep you sharp and active as you age. The source for many of these ideas will be the AARP series on Staying Sharp.

We start with dance, which is considered a great way to protect brain tissue, improve focus and help navigational skills. In fact, according to studies done at Colorado State University, activity using specific dance types is effective in different ways.

The study starts with country dance, which is considered very useful for protecting brain tissue.  As we age, certain types of brain matter break down.  Country dancing was useful in slowing or preventing the deterioration.

Researchers in the study also discovered that creative dance and movement was very helpful with keeping and sharpening focus as we age.

Finally, a different study done at Western Sydney University in Australia, determined that ballroom dancing is an excellent way to maintain and enhance executive function and navigation skills.

We know that as we age, any physical activity is beneficial. If you like to dance, these activities are great for the brain.
