THE BENEFITS OF DANCE FOR KIDS & TEENS

Dance improves flexibility, coordination, balance, range of motion, stamina, muscle tone, strength and posture. But physical fitness is just one of many benefits of dance. Children and teens learn to follow directions, learn and remember steps (choreography), respond to music, develop teamwork, build confidence, and of course FUN!

There is one final reason to get children of any age dancing. Research proves there is a strong link between involvement in the arts (including dance) and increased educational achievement. In fact, one study showed that “students who participate in the arts are not only more likely to participate in a math and science fair, but also out-perform their peers on the SATs by 87 points” (www.artsusa.org).

Time to get dancing!
