Did you know dancing kids are healthier and more well-adjusted kids?
Research has proven the benefits of dancing over and over in a child’s development! Not only do dance classes teach discipline and team player skills, but they unlock the hidden gems of expression of your child’s heart. Children learn to express first physically and then later, verbally– and many children hear music and dance far before they are able to express their feelings in words.
In dance class, they learn cooperation, with others and with their own bodies! Learning new steps helps them realize they can cooperate with their body and express their own ideas through leaping, or twirling. They cooperate with other children as they move with their dancing line, stay in a group to create a dance, and listen to their teacher. Dance also teaches self control, which serves them well when they arrive in their first classroom experience for school!
As they learn more and more in dance class, and begin to achieve more difficult dance steps, their self esteem soars and they realize they are capable of doing so much more than they thought possible! As they continue to learn and move their bodies to the music that feed their hearts and souls, you will see an amazing transformation in your child’s social development as well. They will see themselves as someone who can achieve anything they put their minds and bodies to.
