There's everything from Zumba to ballet.

You may be used to getting your sweat on by strength training or doing cardio workouts like running or HIIT, but those go-tos aren't the only ways to rev your heart rate and sculpt your bod. If you've never tried a dance workout, you're seriously missing out, so here's your invite to the party.

The best dance workouts make you feel like you're in the middle of a dance floor instead of, well, your living room. Plus, there's something for everyone, whether you're looking for a specific type of dance like Zumba or barre, or intricate choreography that'll feel like a challenge to master.

But just because you're having fun doesn't mean you're experiencing less bennies than a typical workout sesh. In fact, dance fitness classes are associated with an improvements in mental and physical health such as building muscle and a better mood. The latter is thanks to the endorphin-releasing effects of music combined with cardio, per a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health that looked at how adding Zumba classes to their weekly routine affected the health of women who weren't regular exercisers.

What's more: Dance training may even have the ability to slow down your brain's aging process, according to a study published in the PLOS One Journal that found taking dance classes where you had to learn new choreography boosted the cognitive function of older adults more than when they did workouts with repetitive movement patterns like strength training or steady state cardio (think: jogging or going for a spin on an exercise bike).

So, if you're ready to switch things up, here's a list of the best dance workout channels on YouTube. These top-rated channels have earned thousands of subscribers, are all beginner-friendly, and represent a mix of dance styles from ballet to hip-hop. Go ahead and shimmy, shake (and sweat!) like nobody's watching.

Fall in love with modern dance right now: 5 rare performances on YouTube

Modern dance can be scary, repulsive and alarming. Especially for readers of the magazine about art Point ART Olga Ugarova - journalist and author of the popular Telegram channel about ballet "VeryBallet" has collected five energetically charged productions from YouTube for safe immersion in the choreography of the XXI century - some of them are posted only due to quarantine circumstances and thanks to industry fans. All performances can be reviewed without worrying about online broadcast deadlines. nine0081

Ohad Naharin. Batsheva Dance Company. Deca Dance (2016)

Deca Dance © youtube.com

Master, teacher, Mr. Gaga, a role model, the ageless Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin is known to many, including the fact that he invented his own language of improvisational continuous movement - GaGa (emphasis on the first syllable). The main beauty of GaGa is its accessibility. To appreciate and feel it, even sitting in the hall, you do not need a special context or refined knowledge of conventions - just tune in to the perception of a miracle, and the Batsheva Dance Company ensemble will certainly manifest it. Deca Dance is a composite performance of the best numbers, created by Naarin in different years. One of them is the famous episode where dancers in black suits, hats and white shirts dance (and themselves sing) the Passover song of the Israeli people. nine0003

Hofesh Schechter. The Art of not Looking Back (2018)

The Art of not Looking Back Dee Conway © Opéra National de Paris

The choreographer, who left Israel at the age of 21, has become one of the strongest phenomena on the European scene in recent years. After the final chord is heard in his productions, I want to jump out of my chair and give a standing ovation, which was what the Petersburgers did in December last year at the Context festival. Diana Vishneva - then Schechter brought his work Grand Finale, nominated for the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award. The Art of Not Looking Back is a ballet staged only for dancers and discusses the importance of the past (the voice of the choreographer himself periodically sounds from the speakers, who tries to find an answer to his very personal questions through dance). First staged in 2009year, and then re-edited for the Paris Opera in 2018, but retaining Schechter's traditional powerful visuals, techno rhythm and full rock and roll. If you don’t figure out what is there and how in the choreography, then you will catch the drive for sure.

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Puzzle (2012)

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui © welovebuzz.com

Believe me, you will remember the hard-to-pronounce name of this modern dance shaman (Cherkaoui is a Belgian of Moroccan origin) right after the first performance. His choreographic designs, a mix of 21st century techniques and folk dances from all over the world, the artists’ catlike plasticity, a musical sequence with live vocals and oriental harmonies fascinate right in the first minutes of viewing. The rest (despite the timing of two hours) looks like under hypnosis, which leaves a magical aftertaste. nine0003

Russell Malifant. Push (2005). Sylvie Guillem

Push © youtube. com

A half-hour ballet for the cult Frenchwoman Sylvie Guillem, the muse of Rudolf Nureyev, Maurice Béjart, William Forsythe and the entire dance world of recent decades, was staged by the British choreographer Russell Malifant, who was originally her partner in this essay. The viscous compositions, solos followed by duets, the weightlessness of seemingly disembodied dancers introduce the viewer into complete meditation, and now it can have more than a therapeutic effect. nine0003

Mats Ek. Place (2007)

Place © youtube.com

It's not new in the last few years, but the recording posted a month ago is good. The film work of the main philosopher of modern dance, one of the most important choreographers of the 20th century, the subtle and smartest Mats Ek, was staged on two greats: the muse Ana Laguna and Mikhail Baryshnikov. The story of love and tenderness Place shows that dance is a territory for everyone, where you can talk about any topic and at any age.
