If you are thinking of taking up dancing, suggestions include:

Wear layers of clothing that you can take off as your body warms up.

Do warm-up stretches or activities before you begin a dance session.

Drink plenty of water before, during and after dancing.

Make sure you rest between dance sessions.

Don’t push yourself too far or too fast, especially if you are a beginner.
