Here’s how dancing has a positive impact on workplaces:

  • Promotes social interaction, relationships and team-building
  • Removes barriers between people and teams. Dance help people get to know each other in a fun and non-threatening manner
  • Has an impact on individual and collective mood improvement – helping increase people’s happiness.
  • Positive impact on individual and group health and fitness – mind, body and soul.

When we dance with others there are other substantial benefits for the workplace such as:

  • Equality and helps people relate to each other as equals and fellow humans.
  • Conflict diffusion.
  • Communications.
  • Mutual respect and awareness

Dancing helps develop attention and concentration. It can boost ability to multi-task because dancing is more than just moving. You are taught to be in control of your balance and posture, be aware of who or what’s around you, listen and respond to the beat and rhythm of the music and follow the steps.

Dancing – because it is radically different from normal ‘work’ – can open new possibilities for problem-solving, creativity, decision-making, and action. All of these things are crucial for effective working.

When we dance our motivation increases, our bodies produce positive ‘feel-good’ energising chemicals and generates particularly strong emotional feelings. Motivation is vital for being productive and cooperative in work situations. Dancing makes us more alert, more creative, and more driven to succeed, or to overcome challenges. Employees become healthier and fitter, which helps performance, and reduces absenteeism’

What better reasons are there to hold either a one off or regular workplace dance sessions.
