Lately I find myself hearing more and more about students who have found out that by coming to our studio for different programs related to dancing, have helped them with their healing process of different issues either physicaly or emotionaly related. It sure makes us feel great to be promoters of positive experiences to our students so I thought about sharing some researches done by others to confirm that DANCING CAN BE HEALING...
DANCING TO HELP DEALING WITH CANCER:
Anne Krantz, a UCSF Clinical Psychologist and Dance Therapist explores the healing properties of dance. Dr. Krantz discusses her work using the art of dance for creative transformation, as patients revitalize, express, and renew confidence in their bodies to address physical, emotional and spiritual challenges of cancer.
DANCING TO HELP DEALING WITH DEMENTIA:
A study published in The New England Journal of Medicine investigated the effect leisure activities had on the risk of dementia in the elderly. Researchers found that frequent dancing was the only physical activity of the 9 studied that appeared to lower the participants’ risk of dementia considerably. The lead author of the study, Joe Verghese, a professor of Neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, says he's not sure why dancing had such a unique effect, but surmises that, "unlike many other physical activities, dancing also involves significant mental effort and social interactions." Both intellectual and social stimulation have been shown to reduce the risk of getting dementia.
Come and dance with us for a better life, for a better YOU!

Students are always asking for more UP BEAT songs for work out and ballroom dancing. Rhianna is probably the most played singer for CHA CHA & SAMBA rhythms! We have lots of her songs in the OC DANCE STUDIO playlist and here is another one of her many TOP HITS for your enjoyment and if you want to move and "swelt" under the influence of her high energy songs, just come join our WEIGHT LOSS CLASSES and start "Swelting" (Sweating and Melting)!!!! Enjoy her video!

You decided is time to lose some weight, but not sure yet on how to start or get motivated. Mean while, each day that passes by is an extra day of extra weight until you actually take action. Then you set up big plans and because it takes time and work you end up not doing anything about and again more days and time passes by. Let's start with baby steps! Today and every day for the next 30 days you will do the following:
1) park your car as far as possible to the main entrance of your work, grocery store, shopping store, etc.
2) Avoid drive thrus. Park your card again as far as possible and walk into the food place. Better yet: avoid fast food in general! Don't have time to cook? That's fine, most grocery shops nowadays offer healthier options of "pick up" food such as rotisserie chicken and salads. Even a nice turkey sandwich from the deli is better than a Big Mac with fries!
3) Which brings me to types of food: let's avoid maybe 3 types of food for those 30 days as a baby step. So you want to cut off 3 items that are fried from your menu.
4) Drink lots of water between meals and a full glass right BEFORE each meal and specially in the am right after waking up.
5) Do you have dogs? Well instead of asking others to walk your dog, do it yourself and hopefully more than once a day. You will be doing both of you a great deed!
6) Avoid big intervals between meals and if you can't just simply carry power bars (with low calories) in your purse, car and drawers at work and try snacking or having small meals every 2 hours if possible. Again, SMALL meals in between main meals. HEALTHY snacks NOT extra chips or cookies!
7) Don't use food as your main source of pleasure or stress release. Call friends, get out of the house, if you are at work and got upset, go up and down the stairs until you calm down and mean while you will be burning calories! Don't have stairs? Go for a walk around the building or the parking lot.
8) Which brings me to another great tip: do you work sitting all day? No time for lunch? I am sure you can spare 15 mins here and there. Go do the stairs or the parking lot. I know it seems silly or boring, maybe in the 1st few days, but after 2 or 3 weeks of daily basis routine, you will do by habit and repetition.
9) Try exercising somehow a total of 3 hours minimum per week. Walking, jogging, biking, playing sports, dancing, etc. If you have to mix match...so be it! Whatever it takes to get out of the house/work place!
10) Avoid: non supportive friends and family members, bad influence people and situations, alcohol and most of all, watch out for your sabotaging mind! Your worse enemy! Whenever you decide to lose weight and start a new life style, your mind will be your biggest challenge! You will not start because you forgot your tennis shoes at home, you are too tired, you don't have time, your family and children need you at home, your working hours, your lack of energy, motivation, etc. You must fight all those obstacles and create a new life style for yourself and that will only happen when you break bad habits long enough that your thoughts and way of living will change and no looking back.
