Dance Moves and the whole process of learning them, practicing them and then showing them off in a club is not only a lot of fun but a very easy, not to mention interesting way to lose weight! Sure, you will sweat and sure, it will take some of your time but it sure beats long hours spent at the gym, exercising all by yourself. Rehearsing, learning new choreographies and neat dance moves has also helped some of the famous celebrities deal with their weight issues so, if you’d like to change your body the way Kelly Osborne did, take a look at these 7 fabulous dances and dance moves that will help you burn some major calories!
1. Belly Dancing
Is unwanted belly fat messing with your levels of self-esteem? Well, you’d better work on your belly dance movies, girl, because this sexy dance targets the abdominal muscles you didn’t even know you had! Belly Dance lessons are very popular these days and you’ll have no problem finding an affordable course that fits your timetable and, once you’ve got your best Shakira routine all set and ready to be shown in public, hit the club to burn even more calories and maybe even snag a Rafael Nadal -looking hottie!
Zumba is THE ideal way to dance your excess pounds off and have a lot of fun while you’re doing it, so forget about aerobics and focus your attention on finding a gym that offers the so-called Zumba- fitness. Fast Latin beats which will require you to move accordingly will certainly get your blood pumping faster and your body burning a massive amount of calories and, just in case there is no Zumba in your area, you can always buy a DVD, reorganize your furniture and start getting your groove on in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
3. Ballet Dance Moves
You don’t have to be a professional ballet dancer to enjoy all the benefits this graceful dance offers so, if you think you’re too old for ballet, I’ll just have to hit the imaginary “wrong answer” buzzer right now! Ballet isn’t as easy as it looks and it requires a lot of practice which means you’ll get to burn a lot of calories! It’s not a fast dance which makes it ideal for the ones who don’t like complicated, fast-paced dance routines and is a great way to improve your flexibility and tone your muscles in a way that will make you look lean and graceful instead of bulky. So? What are you waiting for?
4. Hip Hop
Hip hop dance moves are fast, cool, kind of empowering and definitely a good thing to know so, if you want to feel like a Step Up star and get your body to burn those calories like there is no tomorrow, definitely consider these. You don’t have to take expensive courses or buy DVDs as there are plenty of free tutorials on how to pull of various, not so complicated stuff which you can later combine for a truly awesome workout or, if you are brave, a public dance routine. Various fitness experts suggest hip hop dancing because it’s one of the most dynamic dances ever so give it a shot and get back to me with an amazing success- story soon!
5. Hoop Dancing
I’m sure each and every one of us remembers this fun toy – Am I right? Well, let’s do more than just share memories – let’s put them into a good use! Hoop was fun back when we were kids and it sure can be just as fun now so get yourself a hoop, add all great up-beat songs you can think of to your new workout playlist and let the fun begin. Start with the basics until you can finally remember how it’s done and then start practicing new tricks that will help you have a great, calorie burning workout.
6. Pole Dancing
Hmmm… Now this could sure be an interesting way to burn fat and I’m sure your significant other would totally agree. In fact, I bet he’d be more than willing to do some of your chores, pick you up, drop you off and basically anything to make sure you never skip a class. LOL! Learning dance moves that will help you feel comfortable around a dance pole won’t only do wonders for your body but help you feel sexier as well so, although this is not exactly knowledge you’ll get a chance to put into a good use very often, I simply have to give it thumbs up.
7. Salsa Dance Moves
Seductive, hot, fast salsa moves are exactly what a girl needs to burn some calories so try this if none of the things mentioned above sounds interesting enough for you to give it a shot. I’ve been dying for some Salsa lessons for ages but never managed to work them into my schedule or find a friend willing to keep me company but, now, when I’ve read more about it and realized it can do my body more than good, I’ll definitely have to reorganize and find some free time.
Not being afraid to bust a move will certainly put you on the first and the fastest train to Greatbodyville and which dance moves you’ll use to get there depends on you and your preferences only! So, which of these wonderful calorie-burning dances has the dance moves that could make you shake it until there’s no excess fat left to shake?
