Now is the time to choose dance...the benefits are endless and let's face it...dancing is FUN!
Benefits of Dance:
Physical Health Benefits - Dancing is highly physical; meaning your child will increase their stamina, flexibility, and strength. Not to mention, improving their balance and coordination while building good posture. Studies also show "children who exercise benefit from a deeper and more restful sleep and improved appetite".
Academic Benefits - Both sides of the brain are used simultaneously while you dance; one half is controlling the artistic and creative expression, the other controlling the physicality and movement. This means your child will improve their memory, spatial awareness, and listening ability. Another benefit? Studies show children who dance have higher scores in mathematics and science.
Social Benefits - If you have a shy child, dance can be a good way of allowing her/him to interact with other children and improve her social confidence. Building and enhancing self-esteem is another key outcome from dancing. Above all, through hard work and performances, children can feel a strong sense of achievement, learn about responsibility, and prepare themselves for a successful career; regardless if it involves dance or not.
