Updated: Jan 4

With so much time on our hands, we have the opportunity to explore so many new things; to expand our horizons more that we have before. Art and expression is not only the best way to do that but also a great way to channel our emotions, make something meaningful, and have a way to remember this time! Keeping that in mind, we’ve curated a list of five great new skills and hobbies you can take up in the next few months - along with resources to help you.

Get a Workout In and Learn at the Same Time with Danceworx Before quarantine, getting regular movement was easy - walking around your neighbourhood, playing some sort of sport, going to the gym. However, being home-bound has made that far harder - but not impossible. One of the most fun ways to keep yourself active during quarantine is through dance - a great way to improve your flexibility, balance, coordination and endurance! It helps you not only become more graceful but far stronger and more agile as well. Health benefits even include a stronger heart, lungs and bones. 

For those who tend to procrastinate exercising, we can’t think of anything better. Not only is it a work out but it’s also fun, and a wonderful way to meet new people.  Danceworx is renowned organisation teaching several forms of contemporary dance through online classes, and having attended them myself, I couldn’t recommend them strongly enough.  So put on your game face, and get ready to become a stronger, more graceful, and more confident version of yourself!
