We know finding the right activity for your child can be overwhelming! Our guide can help you decide if dance classes are right for you!
There are so many choices in activities, why dance?
Dance classes provide dancers with grace, technique and an appreciation for the arts but it is so much more. Dance class builds a child’s self confidence as they master new steps. It allows children to express themselves and grow their imaginations through creative movement. Dance helps their brain develop through the use of opposites, terminology, and stringing together movement through dance combinations. Dance class also allows children to learn self-control, discipline, classroom structure, spatial awareness, and self control. These are just a few of the many benefits of dance class.
