Dance + Science; “Dance Makes You Smarter”

January 16, 2012

This article comes from Stanford University and it’s an overview of a study from the New England Journal of Medicine.  Scientists did a 5-year study of ‘leisure activities’ (reading, crosswords, sports, etc.) and found that “frequent dancing apparently makes us smarter” and significantly reduces risks of losing cognitive abilities as we get older.  Crossword puzzles were second place, but obviously to no physical benefit ;-). [Perhaps when Mr. Bradley’s pushing reading a book a week, he might want to encourage a ‘dance a day’ as well…! ;-) Dance makes you smarter!
