BENEFITS OF DANCE

One of the first questions posed by families getting involved in the dance world is quite simply: what does dance have to offer my child? Dance has many benefits, some of the most noteworthy would be:

  1. PHYSICAL EXERCISE - Dance provides you with a healthy body. Dancers consistently outperform all athletes on skill and endurance tests.

  2. PROPER POSTURE - Dance classes are noted for demanding this quality, and in fact, have been given recognition for re-aligning those students with posture abnormalities.

  3. DISCIPLINE - The art of dance expects both a mental and physical discipline for its execution. Educators have noted how these qualities are also carried into the classroom as well as life in general.

  4. POISE & SELF-CONFIDENCE - Dancers are noted for conducting themselves in a highly confident manner, whether that be on or off the stage. Dance students are noted for being leaders in the classroom as well as other extra-curricular activities.

  5. CO-ORDINATION - In dance, the mind and body are brought together with graceful and controlled technique. Ice skating, gymnastics, and martial arts are just a few of the disciplines that are now incorporating dance into their training programs to improve their quality of movement.

  6. TEAMWORK – Dancers work together in class towards to goal of dancing as a team on stage. They cheer for one another and encourage one another to become stronger, more confident dancers. Teamwork builds character for the stage and will follow them into adulthood.

There are many other general benefits to pursuing classes in dance. You learn how to work with others, yet you develop your own personal, unique style. Dancers help to create, share, and promote a cultural environment that has existed for several centuries. The student learns, executes and achieves a standard, which is never lost and is highly portable.
