Nia Dance Is More Than Just a Dance Technique

Nia Dance is a technique that mixes martial arts, healing arts, and dance arts, making it, unlike any other dance fitness form you’ve experienced before. The movements of the Nia Technique are adapted to follow along closely with the design of the human body, such as the muscles, nerves and organs. Because of this, each of the 52 total Nia movements results in being very efficient in targeting your body with specific health benefits and can give you more advantages with fewer risks than high-intensity or more complex workouts.

Nia Dance is modifiable and non-impact which means it’s easy to meet each individual’s requirements or abilities, unlike other dance forms and classes. Nia Dance is all about listening to your body and recognising which moves feel correct and which don’t. It’s a very easily modifiable movement practice that, unlike other dance forms, doesn’t leave you feeling fatigued, hurting, or sweaty after a workout.

Nia Dance equips you with a wide range of life advantages, as well as providing you with skills and tools to help you better your lifestyle and mentality outside of class. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up for 2022 to get you on the right track for health, look no further. Improved circulation, reduced anxiety and depressive symptoms, increased muscle gain and toning, improved cardiovascular and immune systems, improved posture, improved organ and cognitive functioning, supported balance and coordination, are just a few of the advantages of Nia Dance.

Dance NZ Providing The Perfect Class For You

Classic Nia has been specially stylised to have more complex movements to bring a sense of challenge, fun and a higher rate of activity for the mind and body.
