  • The community and mental health elements of Groove Therapy classes are central to Vanessa’s understanding of dance and how it can bring people together and, quite simply, make us feel better. Most of us are familiar with the obvious health benefits of dancing, since it’s a physical activity that gets us moving – but it has plenty to offer on a mental and spiritual level, too. “Regularly attending any sort of extra-curricular activity means you can meet people and become part of a community, which is really important for keeping a healthy headspace,” Vanessa points out. “Dance is a means of non-verbal self-expression, and expressing yourself is pivotal for those going through a mental health crisis. It’s a screen-free activity. It gets you out of your head and into your body.” It can also help us stay mentally fit – dancing builds the white matter in the hippocampus region of our brains, which governs learning, memory and balance. If an apple a day is supposed to keep the doctor away, a dance a day could help stave off the effects of an ageing brain, Vanessa explains. “I could honestly keep going but you’re convinced, right?” she jokes. “Go have a boogie by yourself right now.”
