Get up and dance!
Posted 11/11/11 , edited 11/11/11
I love to dance.

Out of all the extracurricular activities I enjoyed as a kid, I kept at dance the longest and enjoyed it the most. My stamina may have since waned a bit with age, but I can still cut the rug something fierce when provoked.

So, I was incredibly pleased to learn about a recent study by the New England Journal of Medicine, which reported on the effects of recreational activities on mental acuity in aging, spanning 21 years.

http://socialdance.stanford.edu/syllabi/smarter.htm

They observed the effects of various activities, and it turned out that dancing was the only one other than reading or doing crossword puzzles four days a week that had any effective reduction on the risk of dementia. Even better, dancing's mitigating effects practically eclipsed doing those puzzles.

So... who feels like dancing?




Just for fun: What music gets you up to get your boogie down??

I dance horribly. Whenever I do it, someone comes up to me and says 'I think you've had one too many drinks, mate.' I think I'll just chance it with reading, which according to this article reduces the risk of dementia by 35%.

Any club remix of an Industrial song I'll dance too...old school the better. Nitzer Ebb, Front242, Ministry, Meat Beat Manifesto, etc...but I also dig the newer stuff such as Icon of Coil, [:SITD:] or modern Synthpop/EBM/Futurepop ... VNV Nation, A23, etc...I also like the Shoegazer stuff.



I love to dance.

I can't dance for shit, I swear. Best I can do is Caramelldansen, but who wants to see that?

People don't dance nowadays. They just go to disco and act like monkeys.

There's way too many songs that make me feel like dancing.

I'll put one example that I'm listening to right now.
