Why is dancing good for you?

Dancing is a great way to raise your heart rate.

You can burn over 400 calories in an hour.

It makes your muscles work hard, which helps to maintain and improve strength.

It works on your concentration, coordination, balance and agility.

It’s a complete body and mind workout!

So have a go at The Waka Waka

Practicing mindfulness has been shown to improve attention and reduce stress as well as increase

one's ability to regulate emotions and feel compassion and empathy.

We tried From Mindless to Mindful yesterday in Year 5 and really enjoyed it!
