7 ways your child will benefit from dance lessons:
Dance Improves Self-Esteem and Confidence - During dance classes, children gain a better understanding of their body and how it moves, they are aware of how far they can push themselves and awe at the capability of their body dancing. Children with a background in dance are typically more comfortable and have improved levels of self-confidence. It takes great courage and confidence to dance in front of an audience and dancing helps to encourage these wonderful qualities. Dance also helps foster a positive attitude and the teachers at N D Studios create an encouraging environment that helps turn each class into a positive and constructive experience.
Dance Encourages an Active Lifestyle - In today’s technology driven world, it is becoming increasingly important for children to keep active and to adopt a healthy lifestyle from early on. Dancing is a perfect way for kids to keep physically active in a fun way! By bringing your child to N D Studios they will improve on their range of motion, strength, stamina, and flexibility. The movements in our dance classes will also help to improve; balance, coordination and posture. Dance focuses a lot on correct body alignment and learning how to move the body. It’s no wonder dance is used to help train athletes in some of todays most competitive sports.
Dance Improves Classroom Performance - Studies show that children participating in dance classes tend to perform better in the classroom. Dance requires discipline and focus which translates to an improved academic performance. In addition to this, dance sessions help reinforce educational basics, like counting for example. Children also learn how to coordinate right from left and differentiate fast from slow.
Dance Encourages Socialisation - Dance lessons are a great place for children to make new friends. With each class, children learn to improve their communication and social skills by interacting with other dancers in the class, whilst also learning how to work together in a team and then within time students also learn how to cooperate and trust in one another. It’s not uncommon for children to forge lifelong friendships with the other children they meet at dance class. If your child is fearful of performing in public or shy, taking dance classes at N D Studios can help alleviate these fears and help your child flourish.
Dance Promotes Creativity - Participating in dance classes at N D Studios promotes creativity and helps a child develop an appreciation for the arts. Dance is a form of self-expression and children who explore the world of dance from a young age will find this a constructive outlet for their creativity in a positive way. Honing their creativity at a young age will help them later in life.
Dance Improves Behavioural Issues - Dancing is a skill that requires intense focus, discipline and coordination. Many parents find that dance lessons help improve behavioural issues, such as hyperactivity. Classes designed for the younger children aren’t quite as demanding, but as your child progresses in dance, their lessons will require more focus, dedication and discipline. The art of dancing tends to have a calming effect on some children and helps them to release energy.
Dance is FUN! - Perhaps the greatest benefit of them all! Dancing is so much fun for kids as it allows them to stay active in a fun and exciting way, whilst at the same time your child is developing important social and emotional skills without even realising it. As your child develops and progresses they can explore different aspects of dance and make new friends throughout the process.
