i Dance Tips
There are usually 3 segments in a 90 minute dance session
1. It begins with a 10 minute warm-up. This helps the body adjusting to the following 65 minutes of vigorous aerobic dancing.
2. Followed by 65 minutes of dancing for effective fat burning and boosting your cardiovascular tolerance.
3. Ends with a 15 minute stretching session that is crucial to relax the muscles, keeping the muscles supple, lowering the lessen wear & tear and lower the risks of injury.
Our Suggestion for members is to take meal 1 hour prior to the session at a moderate level of 70% full. Any consumption of food after the dance session should be at least one hour later.
(The best time for the human body absorbing nutrients is after exercise, a light meal of crackers, apple or banana is recommended)
Members are recommended to wear exercise outfits with Bra Top (To maintain good bust lines) for dance exercises. Comfortable and well-fitted air cushioned sneakers and cotton sports socks are ideal for your feet. (Latin Dance sessions would require Latin Dance shoes. Taking Yoga or Pilates classes would be bare feet)
Keep on normal breathing during dance sessions… Never hold your breath. Pay attention to the inhale and exhale and strive for the harmony between your body and your breathing.
Intake of warm water after 30 minutes into your dance session can replenish the loss of fluid in your body through perspiration
Beginners may take 2 to 3 months to adjust to the synchronization and co-ordination of the left & right body during dancing. At the interim period, don’t worry, just relax and enjoy the workout.
