ARE YOU MISSING THE 3Fs IN YOUR LIFE: FRIENDS, FUN & FITNESS ?
Dancing is one of the best forms of gaining the 3Fs in your life.
Scottish Country Dancing (SCD) or Ceilidh dancing, as it is
sometimes known, combines all three in addition to improving
memory. Much of the music is traditional, as are many of the
dances. Like most forms of country dancing, it is performed
in teams, the routines combining forwards and sideways
movements with side-skipping, turning and hopping elements –
all of which assist in combating the deterioration of the
nervous system (memory loss). This form of dancing encourages
upright posture keeping muscles strong and responsive and
needs no special equipment. All it needs is a willingness to learn,
laugh at yourself, and smile at your fellow dancers.
Advantages are that it is an inexpensive way of improving fitness,
needs no regular partner, is fun and has no age limits.
Of course, like any form of exercise, it takes discipline to work
as a team. This is part of the challenge: moving to music (listening), coordinating movements and combining
sequences (memory) and work together in the performance of a dance.
