Do your employees enjoy a bit of dancing? Well, it might be the time to dance the antic hay and take them to a Greek dance lesson! It is common knowledge that dancing is beneficial for people, since physical exercise raises the levels of serotonin – the hormone of happiness – and contributes to tension relief. Business teams can also enjoy the perks of dancing; apart from the individual benefits of this activity, it is a fun way to boost team’s morale, coordinate the team members’ movement to accomplish a common goal and bridge the gap between the management team and the employees. It is also an excellent ice breaker!

The employees can either form several teams or work as one team to reach the 'treasure-filled chest'.

It is the ideal activity for a new project kick-off or for a smooth transition in case of team restructuring within the company.
