Synopsis: Dancing for health is a breakthrough in the way we think about our existence and our wellness. Isn't it easier to enjoy life and be happy if your body allows you to do the things you like to do? Dancing, as explained in this book, is one of the best ways I know to preserve your body, sharpen your mind, and keep you socially active having the best time of your life ever. Everyone agrees that when you are enjoying yourself in what you are doing, you are truly living. I believe that dancing is a way to achieve that enjoyment and at the same time, glean the rewards of good health. This book is about dancing, and the passion that people develop for dancing over a period of time. Dancing brings you tremendous joy, at the same time giving you many life prolongation benefits that enable you to live well into your old age in a healthy condition. It becomes a source of enjoyment, pleasure, exercise, fulfillment, mental growth, stimulation, social interaction and all-out fun that you can look forward to doing on a regular basis. When floating across the dance floor with a partner, you are connecting with another human being, in rhythm to the music, moving synchronously as if floating on air. So much for stress! Dancing, as I explain in this book, is one of the best physical activities we can do to prolong our lives, prolong our enjoyment of life, and enhance our passion for living. Dance to Live is my gift to you. I hope you enjoy this book. Please pass it on to others so they may benefit from it and experience the wonderful feeling of dancing, too. John P. Lenhart, M.D. Saint Petersburg, Florida
From the Publisher: John P. Lenhart M.D.,D.C. is a board certified specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. His sub specialty is Orthopaedic Medicine.
Dr Lenhart came up with the concept of dancing for health after observing very healthy elderly ballroom and swing dancers. He notices that those people acted much younger than their chronological years. They were mentally sharp and engaged in life. They were truly living; socially engaged and happy.
Dr. Lenhart had written a previous book called "7 Secrets of Anti-Aging". In that book he greatly researched the seven key elements needed to stay young and healthy. He also lectured at national medical conferences on physical activity in anti-aging.
In dancing, he noticed that what he discussed in his first book was being done as a byproduct of the dance process.
Physical activity and mental stimulation are the most important Secrets of anti-aging.
When people dance they inadvertently do both things. They are aerobically active by doing cardiovascular exercises by the movements in dance, and at the same time they are improving their reflexes and balance. They exercise their mind by having to remember the dance moves and count to the rhythm of the music in order to transition from one stem pattern to another. What they are doing is exercising their mind to stay sharp.
Because Dr. Lenhart had extensive training in rehabilitation, he was able to put the pieces of the puzzle together and explain in simple every day terms how dancing will not only prolong someone's life but it will greatly enhance their enjoyment of life.
With the popularity of "Dancing With The Stars" TV program. This book has arrived at a time when the greatest impact in health enhancement is possible.
The baby boomers need an activity that is fun to do, social, romantic, and at the same time will greatly enhance their quality of life.
Dance to Live is a book whose time has come.
