Dance is exercise and Exercise helps improve the health of the heart and blood vessels, reducing the risk of heart disease and high blood pressure. It can reduce the risk of some types of cancer, stroke and type 2 diabetes. It can help maintaining strong muscles and flexible joints can help people maintain independence for longer, It can helping to keep bones strong reducing the risk of osteoporosis, and improve sleep, as well as reduce the risk of falls by improving strength and balance.
It can also improve cognition and may improve memory and slow down mental decline.But most of all we hope the social interaction will reduce the feeling of isolation, improving confidence, increase self-esteem and improve mood.

Making social action part of life for 10-20 year-olds
The #iwill campaign promotes social action among 10-20 year-olds. This includes activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering, all of which create a double-benefit – to communities and young people themselves. So far more than 700 business, education and voluntary sector partners have committed to embedding social action into the lives of young people.
