Why this petition matters

Started by Cat Cooper

The UKs health and obesity levels are rising , more housing and take away shops grow in numbers but where are the dance halls and floors? 
Not everyone wants to go out to eat and drink. Lots of people don’t want to go to the gym.

For years now scientists have proven that dancing has so many health benefits 

improved condition of your heart and lungs
increased muscular strength, endurance and motor fitness
increased aerobic fitness
improved muscle tone and strength
weight management
stronger bones and reduced risk of osteoporosis
better coordination, agility and flexibility
improved balance and spatial awareness
increased physical confidence
improved mental functioning
improved general and psychological wellbeing
greater self-confidence and self-esteem
better social skills.

In World War II the dance halls were fixed before anything else cause of the benefits it did for everyone! 
Over the past ten years through difficult times dancing was my life saver. Dancing saves lives!

Give us new dance venues for the next generation. More than just one in every town. There’s lots of styles of dancing.
