Dance to Get Active Urges Experts, as Inactivity is Proven to be Deadlier than Obesity

While the obesity epidemic has got the world seriously worried, the latest research has revealed that inactivity is twice as likely to lead to an early death. With children and adults alike unsure how to find the recommended 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity a week, is the go-to platform for a comprehensive list of toe tapping classes that will get the heart racing and lead to overall better health.

Lynn Beaumont, Co-Founder of said, “One of the biggest reservations people have about racking up their 150 minutes of physical activity is the fact that it can be boring and tedious. For those on the search for something a little more exciting than the hitting the gym or pounding the pavement, is an invaluable resource.”

With many of today’s workers having sedentary jobs and not engaging in regular exercise, the statistics are alarming. While the consequences of inactivity can be lethal, the good news is that a brisk 20 minute walk every day is all it takes to counteract the risk of premature death. Drawing on research from over 300,000 European men and women, scientists studied the effects of obesity and exercise over a period of 12 years. The results were startling. They found that people who engaged in moderate levels of daily exercise were 16 – 30% less likely to die than their inactive counterparts. Fun and energetic, dance classes are an exciting way for both adults and children to incorporate exercise into daily life.

Study leader Professor Ulf Ekelund from the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit at Cambridge University explains, "This is a simple message: just a small amount of physical activity each day could have substantial health benefits for people who are physically inactive.”

With a comprehensive range of dance classes available in a range of different styles, is the perfect place to start racking up the recommended hours of physical activity a week. From ballet and ballroom to Zumba and jazz, classes help to develop fitness levels, tone the body, trim the waistline and above all, counteract the risk of premature death due to inactivity.

Finding a class is simple. Dancers can simply visit the website, search for classes in their local area and sign up for a class that takes their fancy. As well as contributing to physical activity, dance classes are also a fantastic way to have fun, meet new people and lift the mood.
