Did you know that ballroom dancing can benefit both the mind and body? Ballroom dancing can condition the body, keep the heart in shape, build and increase stamina, develop the circulatory system, strengthen and tone the legs and body, increase flexibility and balance, help with weight loss and relieve stress. According to a 21-year study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, dancing can also reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia in the elderly.
Nadia Eftedal’s Rhythm Room in Sherman Oaks, which just opened in May, offers social dance lessons, along with a complete dancesport program for those interested in competitive ballroom. The studio also features wedding, debutante, quinceñera and bar/bat mitzvah dance preparation. Club Rhythm, a special dancesport program for kids, provides a strong foundation through group classes, private lessons and guided practice nights.
“We have numerous group classes to choose from,” says Nadia, a world champion Latin dancer. “Group classes are a great way to meet new people, and are a good economic value as well. We also have swing dances every month, which are a lot of fun and great exercise. Please view the calendar on our Web site (www.nadiasrhythmroom) for dates. We hope to see you soon!”
