Aerobic dancing is under the Dancing category in the Health and Beauty Directory of South Africa.

Aerobic dancing can be a great way to have fun, start your blood pumping and get your body in shape. The word aerobic means "with oxygen" but aerobics generally refers to any type of activity that gets your heart pumping and your muscles using oxygen. 

There are three main types of Aerobics dance and exercise:

  1. Low-Impact Aerobics: This is made up of aerobic movements, which are defined as those movements that involve large muscle groups which are usually used in repetitive rhythmic activity, where at least one foot remains in contact with the ground at all times.
  2. High-impact Aerobics: In these workouts, both feet leave the ground at the same time, as is the case during running, hopping, jumping rope, skipping, jumping jacks, plyometrics and some cardio dancing that involves leaping.
  3. Step Aerobics: the person uses a low platform to literally step up and down.

Always remember to cool down after any form of exercise!
