Is Virtual Fitness here to stay?
Over the last decade, a growing number of dance fitness studios have opened, teaching everything from hip-hop, Latin, and jazz inspired workouts to pop, afro, and ballet.
With the advent of lockdown in 2020, many were forced to work and train from home for the first time; equipment-free dance classes were more enticing than ever.
Since then, the virtual fitness sector exploded — and it looks like things are here to stay.
The growing dance fitness industry.
Dance-based fitness courses and wellness events are popping up all over these days, appealing to both health and fitness fanatics and those who don't usually go to the gym.
For those who have been able to fast adapt, the almost $100 billion fitness business has quickly transitioned into a virtual realm. Those that haven't developed a digital strategy, on the other hand, may be left behind.
At-home equipment, streaming services, and virtual trainers are now the workouts of choice.
Convenience of online dance fitness courses.
The success of dance fitness courses can be due to their accessibility, with all of them costing relatively little on a monthly basis and requiring no equipment or knowledge, but there is something about dance that has helped to ease the stress and worry caused by the pandemic.
"Dance fitness is so upbeat, soulful, and joyful. It's the ideal getaway for so many individuals who are stuck at home" — instructor at Cultfit.
Despite all of the obstacles that dance groups and studios have faced over the last year, this type of class was primed to go virtual in the midst of the pandemic.
These lessons, unlike workouts that require equipment or dance genres that require particular floors, might effortlessly move to online, allowing studios to expand their reach.
The dance fitness sector continues to grow in terms of both audience and offers.
Dance your way to mental fitness.
It's understandable: for ages, people have used dancing to connect, celebrate, and mourn.
Those uninitiated to dance glued to their computers all day began looking for new methods to connect with their bodies and have an emotional release as brick-and-mortar fitness choices closed.
Dancing is the most joyous form of expression, and we need reasons to celebrate in these crazy times. The dopamine you receive from dancing with others, whirling people about, the contact high of being with a group of people, the serotonin you get from experiencing a sense of closeness and significance, and the endorphins you get from moving your body and sweating!
Dance is the only workout that allows you to release all four joyful brain chemicals.
A fun and exciting full body workout!
Dancing is a true muscle-toning, heart-pumping, full-body workout, in addition to the happy brain chemicals it can generate. Dance-based fitness is unique in that it engages both the body and the mind.
