Benefits of Scotish Country Dancing
Studies show that people are healthier and happier when they join like-minded others in hobbies, activities and clubs. Scottish Country dancing is one such activity. Anyone, of any age, can join, costs are minimal and clubs exist all over the world, including Japan, of all places. Obviously you don’t have to have a drop of Scottish blood in you to participate in Scottish Country Dancing. And from the beginning it is a lot of fun.
Gladys Farrant of the Scottish Country Dance Club in Kaitaia in New Zealand’s Far North is a shining testimony to the value of Scottish Country Dancing and the benefits of activity in general. At 75-years-young, she tutors Scottish Country Dancing and takes tap dancing lessons with a group of chronologically-younger dancers.
Scottish Country Dancing is certainly good for circulation and arthritis, beneficial for the brain and an opportunity to socialize with like-minded people. You may want to join a regular dance group and enjoy the benefits for yourself.
