Dorm Room Workout: The Epic Dance Party
Have you ever gone out dancing and then realized the next day that you’re exhausted? And sore? (If you haven’t, you’re missing out.) That’s because those epic dance moves of yours are great for toning, not to mention cardio. So listen up class, because this week I’m giving you the best assignment ever: an epic dance party.
But that sounds so easy. Too easy to be a real workout, right? Wrong. After a few minutes of all-out dancing with total abandon, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. Dance however you want, to whatever song you want, coordinated or completely ridiculous. But keep moving and get that heart rate up! You can invite friends if you want, but I’ve found that sometimes you just need to have a solo dance party. It’s a great stress reliever, and the perfect study break activity. It’s also great for your small space, but be careful and try not to sprain your hand by smacking it into your bedpost. Yes, I actually did that.
To get you started, here are a few videos for epic dance inspiration:
Garnet is a student at Columbia University in New York City. She is “that person” who starts dancing at a party when everyone else is standing around, and if there were a Facebook stalking Olympics, she would be a gold medalist. She also loves cheesy 90s music, and almost died of happiness when Vanilla Ice retweeted her. Once. Follow her on Twitter @garnethenderson.
