Most everyone knows that staying active can keep both mind and body healthy as we age. Recent studies have proven that most types of exercise can help reverse or slow the aging process in the brain. Dancing, in particular, has an anti-aging effect on the hippocampus, the region of the brain that is responsible for memory, learning, and balance.
