Dancing keeps you perky

A recent study shows that dancing may help older women to remain living independently. It found that older women were 73% less likely to need help with routine tasks like bathing, dressing and eating.

Experts believe dancing makes daily life easier for older people by improving their sense of balance and thinking skills. Tokyo metropolitan institute of gerontology tracked over 1000 women aged between 75 and 84.

They took part in 16 different types of exercise. Women who danced were less likely to have a “disability ” meaning they needed partial, or total, help with daily activities.
