Here are five reasons why a dance education - whether it be a few classes or years of training - can benefit students for a lifetime.
1. Confidence & Expression
Dancing in a positive, encouraging environment can help students develop a healthy sense of confidence and expression. Through dance, students gain a greater understanding of nonverbal communication and expression through movement and body language.
2. Physical Fitness
Dancing is one of the most fun ways to achieve and maintain physical fitness! Involving both aerobic and anaerobic activity, dance promotes flexibility, strength, muscle tone, and fine motor skills. Regular participation in dance lessons can also improve posture and coordination.
In this art form, the body is the dancer’s instrument. Through dance training, students also learn the importance of caring for their instrument and treating their bodies well.
