The Benefits of Dance to Children
Children pick up rhythm and movement before they form words. Dance gives children a way to channel their boundless energy into a positive and meaningful way. Some of the benefits of dance are:
Developing Social Awareness
Dance gives children the opportunity to learn in a comfortable and fun social setting. Children can interact with others through sharing space, cheering, supporting, and performance. They learn to understand the concept of non-verbal communication through movement.
Being comfortable in your own skin promotes body positivity and confidence. Dance enables children to become comfortable with their bodies.
Movement through music builds the mind-body connection and promotes cognitive development. Children learn that dance is a method to express an idea or problem.
Dance is as much a sport as it is an art. Children develop body awareness, balance, muscle strength and control, coordination, and range of motion. Patterns in dance give instill cross-recreational skills in children unseen in any other sport.
