Here is an article on research showing how dancing, especially learning new dances, can actually improve the brains capabilities.

My own preference is circle dancing which has many different styles of dance and for which you need no partner as it is done while holding hands in a circle.

Circle Dance has been an important part of my life for twenty years. Sadly I can't go the last two years but I haven't given up hope of returning. I was watching some tonight on youtube. (Isn't youtube great?) I would really recommend it. We used to do a lot of slow meditative dances as well as some faster ones. Its a lovely gentle form of exercise and is good for the soul. Anyone can do it. I always came away feeling so refreshed in both body and spirit.
