All the parents, without exception, want to see their children successful and talented. Starting at an early ageis the best time to start learning about music and how to dance. Children learn movement patterns easily when they are young, similar to when they learn language. Your children will greatly benefit in life from learning to dance. Dancing provides social, physical and emotional benefits. The children will learn and develop coordination, balance, respect, strength, flexiblity, and all of the many health benefits from dance. So many studies have proven the benefit of dance and a child's development: mental, physical, and emotional. Children who have participated in dance/music/theater from a young age score better on SATs, have better attention spans, are creative problem-solvers, and are more well-balanced and adjusted. These are just a few reasons that dance classes help youth grow to be the best versions of themselves. Music and Dancing is a long-term investment in your child's education and personal development, and it is our mission to instill a love for dance in all of our students.
Exercise: Everyone knows that kids these days can use a little more exercise every chance that they can get! Due to the advent of screen time, some kids just don’t go out to play anymore. Dance is a great aerobic activity that will get them moving and help develop their agility and coordination too. The best part is, dancing is fun and the kids will not even realize that they are exercising.
Confidence: If your child struggles with team or individual sports, learning to dance is a no-pressure physical activity that will help him or her to really develop some self-confidence. Our instructors are always positive and patient with slower learners, and do everything they can to help them “get it.” it has been proven time and time again that dancing, no matter what type it is, will help a persons self-esteem and confidence which in turn will help them deal with the real world when they are adults.
