I just started dancing this year as I am taking a Jazz class in college. I find that I really enjoy it and it makes exercising fun. Some possibly benefits to dancing that I see include cardio, increased flexibility and strength, increased balance, and... since the music is playing really loud when you're dancing... no one notices if you are breathing really hard or coughing... <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">

Just wondering if anyone else dances for exercise?

I studied classical ballet for years. The cardio was always difficult for me but I found that the stop-and-start cardio involved in a typical dance class was possible even though I couldn't do continuous, intense cardio. It's true that nobody notices if you are gulping air or coughing-everyone exerts themselves so they just think you are working extra hard. The discipline you learn when dancing is also great in other areas of your life.

I dance for fun (contemporary, nothing formal). Dancing is actually extremely good for you. It is a super source of cardio exercise, and is also good for flexibility. Its a very good way to exercise without the "exercise" factor. Unfortunately, I don't dance as much as I used to because I don't go out much anymore, nor do I have the time to since I work a ton and go to school full time.

I was a professional dancer for many years (look at the picture in my signature). I did Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Pas De Duex, you name it. Mainly I was paid for musical theater and Ballet though.
I started dancing when I was about 7 and through highschool my doctors were constantly SHOCKED by my brothers and my stats, they said it was almost certainly due to dancing.
There was a time when I did CATS that I stayed up to late after shows and just pushed myself too hard, ended up in the hospital.

I would HIGHLY suggest dance to anyone with CF, VERY good for the body, VERY good for the lungs. Push yourself, don't let your health hold you back. Just drink lots of electrolytes and make sure you get enough rest if you are doing it a lot over a long period of time.
