We understand! Your child wants to try many different activities and you want to give them the best of the best. There are so many activities to choose from dance, gymnastics, sports, theatre, chess and much more.
We want to make sure your child learns what is best for them and what interests them the most. At Jhalak Dance Academy, we strongly believe that the benefits of dance far outweigh those of the many activities that are in our area. Here are just 5 of the reasons we know a child who dances is empowered to succeed in every area of their life!
1. Dance – A Full Body Workout
There are other activities that can be physical, but when a child learns to dance, they are benefitting from a full body activity, including:
Range of motion
Did you know dance lessons are recommended for professional athletes in any sport?
2. Dance – Promotes Creativity and Mental Development
In a dance class at any level, a child will build and strengthen the neuromuscular connections between their brain and their body, improving body awareness and coordination. But did you know that dance also helps improve behavior and emotional wellbeing? Dancers learn to improve their focus and to express themselves and to release energy through dance. Also, dance is calming and improves overall mood for dancers at any age!
Dance provides a child the opportunity to get exposure to the world of the arts. As our dancers progress in their skill level, we encourage them to get involved in their own choreography and music selection. Plus, it’s well documented that students who study the arts have higher SAT scores than those who do not. Studying the art of dance sets your child up for success in all areas of their life!
3. Dance – Develops Teamwork and Lifelong Friendships
Learning to work together as a team is an important part of sports and many other activities! Choreography is built on the idea that we move our bodies cooperatively with the music and with one another. At our academy, we have built a culture of respect and encouragement. We watch our dancers come together to support one another throughout their dancing journey. The friendships and bonds that form between dancers are beautiful!
4. Dance – Provides Opportunities to Perform
One of the most exciting parts of dancing for kids is showcasing the skills they’ve worked so hard on throughout the year for their friends and family. Dance provides the opportunity for a child to build confidence and improve self-esteem.
5. Dance Class is Always Changing and Evolving!
Our classes and lesson plans are constantly evolving. With our younger dancers, we keep them excited for class each week by changing the music, lesson plans, stickers, props and more on a monthly basis. Week after week, your child will be so excited to come to dance classes, and along the way will be developing the physical, emotional, social, and mental skills they will need to succeed in all areas of their lives as healthy, happy individuals.
