Benefits of Dancing for Kids

There are many reasons you may want to sign your child up for dance lessons.  A fun and creative work out, dance helps children develop muscle tone, improves coordination, and increases physical stamina and strength.  And while dancing is a great form of exercise, its benefits reach well beyond the dance floor.   

 Dancing is an art that encourages children to creatively express themselves through movement building self-esteem and confidence.  

Dance can build your child’s focus, concentration, memory, and pattern recognition as they learn choreography.   

Dance is a highly social activity that allows children to make new friends as they learn to communicate, cooperate, and work as part of a team.  

Best of all, dance is fun!  And, it can motivate kids to stay active as they grow into adulthood. 

 As a professional dancer who has enjoyed a lifetime of benefits, I am grateful my parents helped me discover the joy of dance.  I encourage you to do the same.  If you missed out as a child, it isn’t too late.  There are a variety of studios offering adult dance training too – ballet, ballroom, Zumba and more.
