Calories Burned From Dancing

Save

How many calories you’ll burn dancing depends on a few factors, including the intensity of your dance, how long you dance for and how much you weigh. The more strenuous the dance and the more you weigh, the harder your body has to work and the more calories you’ll burn. Calorie calculators and charts won’t give you an exactly accurate reading of the calories you personally will burn, but you can get a rough idea based on your type of dance and weight.

Calories Burned

  • According to Harvard Medical School, a 125-pound person will burn about 90 calories after 30 minutes of slow, waltz, foxtrot, or other dances of similar-intensity. A 155-pound person will burn about 112 calories and a 185-pound person will burn around 133 calories. When participating in higher-intense dances, like disco, ballroom, square dance and alike, a 125-pound person will burn about 165 calories after 30 minutes. A 155-pound will burn around 205 calories and a 185-pound person will burn about 244 calories. After 30 minutes of fast, ballet, twist and other highly-strenuous dancing, a 125-pound person will burn about 180 calories, while a 155-pound person will burn about 223 calories and a 185-pound person will burn around 266 calories.
