Back­ground. The ben­e­fits of ­aerobic ­dance ­toward the con­tri­bu­tion to ­overall well­ness ­have ­been ­studied in a ­skewed ­manner. ­Numerous ­studies in the ­past ­have exam­ined the car­di­o­res­pir­a­tory ben­e­fits of ­aerobic ­dance. ­Fewer ­studies ­have ­reported the ­effects on ­agility, flex­ibility and coor­di­na­tion. More­over ­even ­fewer ­studies ­have ­used ­aerobic ­dance instruc­tors as sub­jects.
­Methods. To ­examine the ­effects of ­long-­term ­aerobic ­dance on ­agility and ­selected meas­ures of flex­ibility, ­fifty-­four expe­ri­enced and non-expe­ri­enced ­aerobic ­dance ­teachers ­were ­tested on ­these param­e­ters.
­Results. No sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ences ­were iden­ti­fied in any param­eter.
Con­clu­sions. On the ­basis of the ­present ­data we con­clude ­that ­extended par­tic­i­pa­tion in ­aerobic ­dance ­does not con­tribute to ­better sit and ­reach flex­ibility, ­trunk flex­ibility, ­dynamic rota­tional flex­ibility or ­agility and ­that ­aerobic ­dance ­teachers ­should par­tic­i­pate in gen­eral flex­ibility ­stretching activ­ities and sec­on­dary activ­ities to ­improve and/or main­tain ­agility and gen­eral coor­di­na­tion.
