The Benefits of Dance for Children

Looking for a fun and creative way to channel your child's endless energy? We've got the answer: recreational or competitive dance. Traditional team sports are great for exercise, but they aren't the right fit for every child and family schedule. That's why dance classes are a great alternative They get your child moving, and most studios offer classes for children as young as 2 or 3 years old. But that’s not all. Dance classes have a wide range of physical, psychological, and social benefits for children of all ages.

Improved Physical Health

Improved Physical Health

Don't be deceived by all the fun. Dance is a highly physical activity. It doesn't just increase your child's physical strength, flexibility, range of motion, and stamina. It also improves muscle tone, posture, balance and coordination, and overall cardiovascular health. Some children even lose weight and improve their eating habits while tearing up the dance floor.

Educational Benefits

Educational Benefits

Learning doesn't stop when your child leaves the classroom. It continues on the dance floor. Dance lessons ignite the creative spark in children and teach them discipline and focus, which helps them shine outside of the studio too. Students who dance regularly even tend to perform better academically and have better time management skills.

Stronger Social Skills

Stronger Social Skills

Shy or outgoing, children who dance can also improve their social and communication skills. Dance lessons help children learn teamwork skills, make new friends, and develop trust and cooperation. They're also a great way to fight stage fright. And for those particularly introverted kids, dance lessons can reduce anxiety and encourage them to interact with peers.

Higher Self-Esteem

Higher Self-Esteem

Self-esteem can be hard to boost, but dance helps here too. As children learn dance postures, they become more comfortable in their own skin. This improves their confidence, self-esteem, and attitude. These benefits apply to all children, but they're particularly pronounced in those with physical or mental impairments and those coping with emotional problems.
