Even though another career path may ultimately be chosen, in dance children learn the cooperative effort necessary to produce a high quality work of art. Every child benefits from quality dance training. Long-term learnings go far beyond practical applications in dance. Dancers enter society with the ability to maintain the uncompromising high standards nurtured during their dance training.
Creative thinking skills are developed through dance, as well as learning the value of discipline, commitment and work ethic. Self-confidence develops as young people overcome challenges to master new goals, learning to apply themselves and accomplish any task put before them.
Dance teaches children about music, rhythm and beat. Students also have a better understanding of spatial relationships and learn to think with both sides of their brain. All these skills enhance a child’s academic performance, as well as their physical well-being.
