Prevent falls - Studies have been done using dance programs with the results showing the participants reported less fear of falling and feeling more balanced.
Make new friends - Dancing and moving with others, especially to music which fills our souls, tends to encourage strangers to bond with each other. People like to feel they are a part of a group when working on a project, even if it's a fun one like dance, together.
