Many of us may have heard of the graceful Debbie Allen, or even the powerful Misty Copeland. However, there is a new cat in town and her name is Ebony Williams. Ebony has danced with stars like Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, and the queen herself Beyoncé. Ebony is on the mission to becoming her best self! She is even standing up for body positivity. In an interview with Black Enterprise, Eboni stated “I think it’s important to know that you can have your best body… you don’t have to look like everyone else. You are an individual and it’s okay to be an individual”.

Let’s be our best self! Let’s Get Up & Dance

Now that we are on the topic of being our best self!

Here are some of the health benefits of dancing:

Improves your heart and lungs

Increases muscular strength, endurance and motor skills

Improves muscle tone and strength

Manages healthy weight

Greater self-confidence and self-esteem

Improves social skills
