Grooving At TPC’s Urban Park:
5 Reasons Why You Should Consider Dancing Up A Sweat

As part of Tanjong Pagar Centre’s Live-Work-Play vision, a whole gamut of activity is coming your way at its new, 150,000 square feet urban park…and dancing is definitely part of the plan. The park’s first-ever mass fitness activity - Pulse powered by Clubbercise ® - is a fun, easy to follow dance workout that’s done with upbeat music and lightsticks to amp up the atmosphere.

Number 1: Easy To Pick Up

You don’t have to be Beyonce or Miley Cyrus to shake it up. Pulse powered by Clubbercise® main emphasis is on having fun, working up a sweat, and getting your body moving. Feel free to go crazy as the music hits a crescendo, or take things at your own pace if you’re a beginner.

Number 2: Bonding Through Music

Looking to expand your social circle? Dance activities are definitely ideal. Environments with music have been shown to improve levels of oxytocin in our body, the chemical which affects our tendency to trust and bond with one another. It’s no wonder that Shakespeare called music the food of life.

Number 3: Fun And Fitness, Without The Fuss

Forget about stilettos or suiting up. Pulse powered by Clubbercise® is all about working up a sweat in comfortable exercise gear, while still giving you the endorphin rush of busting a groove at a nightclub.

If you’d like to dance up a storm without the hassle of club entry fees, hangovers or overpriced alcohol, Pulse powered by Clubbercise ® will prove to be the perfect fit.

Number 4: Mind-Body Connection

It ain’t just the DJs who’d like you to start grooving. Researchers from Imperial College have found that dancing improves brain function on a variety of levels, including muscle memory and cognitive function.

Apparently, if you’re prone to occasional bouts of dizziness, incorporating dance fitness activities into your exercise regime may help you to improve the condition.

Number 5: Working Up A Sweat

The numbers don’t lie: The average Pulse by Clubbercise ® session burns around 500 calories per hour long class, comparable to the numbers one gets from a brisk jog. Working those glow sticks also means that your arms are in for a great toning workout at the same time.

Number 6: Stress Busting

Feeling frustrated by endless emails, difficult colleagues and a dozen missed calls? A 2014 study published in the European Journal of Sports Science found positive changes in mood for recreational dancers. Rhythmic motion has also been found to trigger the release of endorphins, which can boost your sense of wellbeing.
