Find different types of dance programs for kids

 

Dance is a fun, creative way for your child to keep active year-round. In dance classes, like dance camps, kids build muscle strength, increase flexibility, improve balance and coordination, learn correct posture and develop body awareness. The benefits gained extend far beyond the dance studio into lifelong pursuits of sport, and a healthy, active lifestyle.

Not only is dance is a great way for children to get active, but it also provides an avenue for self-expression, enjoyment, stress relief, and relaxation. With dance, children develop the discipline, patience, and positive attitude to overcome any challenge life throws their way.

There a lots of different kids dance classes and lessons to choose from. Some of these are offered in dance camps and dance schools as well. They include the following:

Dance stimulates the brain

Research has shown that dance can improve a child’s ability to learn new information by stimulating the brain’s visual, auditory, and memory centers. Dance opens children up to more creative ways of analyzing and solving problems. As well, many studies have suggested there is a direct link between physical activity and an increased attention span in children.

So whether you are looking for your child to get active, meet new friends, improve their self-esteem, or want to provide a new challenge or experience, a dance class offers incredible lifelong benefits, all year round.
