Shake it!

From the electric slide at backyard barbecues to the leaps and bounds at Philadanco, if there’s one thing that Philadelphians have, it’s moves on the dancefloor. Whether you two-step, tango or just cut a rug in your living room, you’ve got this one. So, ditch the gym and join the dance party!

Who says you can’t have fun, be social and get fit at the same time? Dancing is a great way to lift your mood and burn calories. And the best part is that it doesn’t have to cost you a dime. But if you are looking to try something new, get your body moving at the Living Arts Dance Studio. Or check to see if your local rec center has a zumba class.

Let your hair down, even sweat it out. And remember, while you’re shakin’ what your mama gave you, you’re also improving the condition of your heart and lungs. Let the music flow through you and dance like nobody’s watching.
