Insight Wellness Works can bring any type of dance to your worksite, including Aerobic dance, Zumba, Nia, belly dancing, Salsa, Hip Hop, and more! Introducing dance into the workplace can bring more productivity, performance, efficiency, and a better morale.
RAND has research showing that 69% of employers with more than 50 employees offered a wellness program.
Dance makes you smarter. Your brain becomes stronger with the connections we make between various ideas and activities. “Dancing integrates several brain functions at once — kinesthetic, rational, musical, and emotional — further increasing your neural connectivity,” as one Stanford article explains.
According to the Harvard Business Review, “Social time turns out to be deeply critical to team performance, often accounting for more than 50% of positive changes in communication patterns.”
Sitting in front of a computer screen or in meetings takes away your energy and slows down the brain. We need to move to get our “feel good” chemicals called endorphins to release. If we feel good physically and mentally, we perform better intellectually and emotionally. Incorporating dance will stimulate your employees’ blood, mind, and ideas flowing, leading to a better quality of work and life.
Dance is a low-weight bearing, low-risk activity with varying levels of intensity, which is more appealing to a range of bodies and abilities, especially beginners. Healthy employees also mean lower health costs, ultimately saving your company money.
Bringing dance into the workplace will stimulate creativity and expression. Brain synapses ignite, and idea development takes off.
People enjoy just plain ole’ fun! Imagine if you go to work and get to dance as a group activity. People will enjoy coming to work more when they know its okay to have fun.
