What Are The Benefits Of Kids Dance Classes?
Believe it or not, dance classes at Ascendance Academy can help your child develop work and learning skills that will help set up your child for success for the rest of their life.
Here are some of our favourite benefits of dance classes:
1. Improves Physical Health
Dancing is an amazing form of exercise, and a love of dance from an early age can assist in motivating kids to stay active as they grow into adults. Dance classes can increase your child’s flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina. As well as promoting overall health, enhanced development in these areas can help kids with sports and other activities at school and beyond.
2. Decreases Screen Time
As a parent in these modern times, one of your biggest concerns is most likely too much screen time. Kids dance classes provide a fun excuse to get your child off screens and into an environment where there is physical, mental and social stimulation. Through instructional learning from the talented teachers and interaction with other kids, your child will naturally forget about missing their favourite show or mobile game because they will be so immersed in learning rhythm, technique, balance and having fun!
3. Enhances Emotional Development
When your child experiences the joy of dancing, he or she learns about expressing themselves in a way that’s beneficial to their physical and mental health. This expression creates a structured outlet for a healthy physical and emotional release that assists in developing emotional maturity. By giving children the freedom to connect with their emotions and energies in a safe environment, their self-esteem and confidence will increase greatly.
4. Encourages Socialisation
Dance is a highly social activity. 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 often develop lifelong friendships with their peers.
5. Encourages Creativity
No matter the style, dance encourages children to be more creative and to express themselves in different ways. By encouraging creativity and imagination, children can actually learn to build trust, effective relationships, and how to think critically. Early childhood is the optimal period for the development of creativity, and creative problem solving will serve your child for life.
6. Enhances Cognitive Development
Attending dance classes allows children to learn self-discipline and time management. As they get older, dancer must learn how to balance school, dance, extracurricular activities, and their social life. 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.
