Why dance?

Why dance?

There are so many benefits to dance and the skills you learn will be carried throughout life.  Not only is it creative and fun but it is also challenging and fulfilling.

Physically, dance provides skills such as co ordination, kinaesthetic and spacial awareness, a relationship and an appreciation of different styles of music, strength and poise. Socially it can give individuals confidence, self esteem and life skills by working individually or as a team towards events such as exams and shows.  Setting obtainable goals in a disciplined environment will allow students to receive praise for hard work and feel a sense of achievement. 

Growth follows a pattern; in the early years, from the head to the toes (cephalocaudal) and from the heart to the finger tips (proximodistal).  Dance and movement can encourage children to think about gaining control over their extremities. In teenage years this pattern is drastically reversed and body control can be difficult.  Learning to stand tall, align and correct the body, nurturing strength development and posture can all help during this difficult phase.

Dancing is a great way to keep fit, working aerobically and anaerobically without realising it!  Whether you dance as part of your healthy lifestyle, for social pleasure or as a profession, I think the real question is… why not dance?
