The Benefits of Dance

Enrolling your child in a quality dance program goes far beyond the physical benefits of exercise and instills important life skills. A program where your child can grow in a nurturing environment can help them gain the confidence to flourish in life. If you are looking for a way to channel your child's seemingly boundless energy, traditional sports provide a great outlet for their physical energy. Dance however, in addition to the physical benefits also provides an outlet to grow mentally, socially and emotionally. 

Preschool age dancers learn how to take turns and follow instructions as dance can sometimes be their first experience in a classroom setting. Dance can spark creativity in young children and they will improve their musicality, motor skills and body awareness as they grow and gain confidence. 

As they get older, dancers learn how to work as part of a group. Dance is more than just memorizing new steps each week. Being part of a dance program teaches self-esteem, builds confidence and responsibility - all while having fun in a group of peers. School age children can learn many important life lessons through the art of expression. Dance instills patience and perseverance by showing them that through diligent training their hard work pays off. Sometimes this is by achieving a new skill or mastering their routine by the end of the season.

Dance can be a wonderful outlet to foster healthy self expression. It can also have mental health benefits by improving one's mood, easing depression and anxiety. Dance challenges your brain to think differently. FamilyTalk Magazine estimates that students who have a background in dance tend to achieve significantly higher SAT scores and do better in math and science. Dance requires you to think two steps ahead, to isolate different parts of your body, to be aware of your surroundings and in sync with the music and your classmates all at the same time.
