Tired of jogging? Here are some dance forms that will tone your body in a fun way, and impress the ladies too!
That's right! Ballroom dancing strengthens the muscles in the calves, thighs and buttocks, and improves your balance. In fact, half an hour of ballroom dancing can help you burn anywhere between 200 and 400 calories.
Two to Tango
The rhythm of music in tango changes all the time - which is why it requires good balance, posture and alignment. Also, as the knees are usually bent in this dance form, it ends up firming up the legs and core.
Salsa is a great way to burn calories, and a social alternative to the gym. The rigorous sequences tone your body while the moves, which includes holding still for long periods, improve your strength and posture.
A high-energy form of exercise, street dancing is what they call a "truly fantastic all-rounder". It makes you use every area of your body, improves your strength and balance, and gives you a rock-hard tummy.
Feel like something more retro? Swing dancing, ideal for couples looking to learn a dance form together, is sure to get your calories burning. What's more, it helps you with your breathing too!
Dancing to Bollywood tunes can be as good a workout of the physique as that of the senses. Do a classic Shammi from 'Kashmir Ki Kali' or a mind-boggling Hrithik from 'Laksh' - the choice is yours!
