Latin and Ballroom Dance classes can help your child develop work and learning skills that will help set up your child for success for their entire life.
Dancing is so much fun for kids and it allows them to stay active in a fun and exciting way. All the while, your child develops important social and emotional skills without even realizing it.
Dance classes can teach a child self-confidence, self-discipline, poise, and grace. Most importantly, dance classes are fun!
The Benefits of Dancing for Children
1. Improves Physical Health
Dancing is a great form of exercise, and a love of dance from an early age can help motivate kids to stay active as they grow into adults. Dance classes can increase your child’s flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina
2. Encourages Socialisation
In a dance class, children learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation, and make new friends. With each class, children interact with other dancers in the class, and more often than not develop lifelong friendships with those dancers.
3. Enhances Emotional Development
By giving children the freedom to channel their emotions and energies in a safe environment, their self-esteem and confidence will increase significantly.
4. Enhances Cognitive Development
The dedication, discipline and focus children learn and practice in dance classes are important life skills that will transfer over to school, work and other aspects of their lives.
5. Encourages Creativity
Dance encourages children to be more creative and to express themselves in many ways.
