Project Erasmus+ Sport
Dance for your health, live your heart passion
The project addresses as main theme the valuing of the sports benefits for the public health and it promotes education in and through sport with special focus on skills development. The project supports through all its activities the education for health, for dance athletes and among the population in general. Promoting concrete information about the benefits of sport and especially dancing on mental and physical health would even bring more motivation among citizens.
The project addresses the objectives of the White Paper on sport and the Pierre de Coubertin action plan (2007) such as “enhancing the societal role of sport, promoting public health through physical activity, boosting volunteer activities”.
Physical activity, health and quality of life are closely interconnected. The human body was designed to move and therefore needs regular physical activity in order to function optimally and avoid illness. It has been proved that a sedentary lifestyle is a risk factor for the development of many chronic illnesses, including cardiovascular diseases. Furthermore, living an active life brings many other social and psychological benefits and there is a direct link between physical activity and life expectancy, so that physically active populations tend to live longer than inactive ones. Sedentary people who become more physically active report feeling better from both a physical and a mental point of view, and enjoy a better quality of life, as stated in the EU Physical Activity Guidelines.
The project aims to increase the participation in sport activities through dance as a practical solution for preventing health problems and raising the sport performance.
