Dance is one of the best ways to get kids off the phone and back into action! Being in class with their peers is an engaging way to learn coordination, social skills, teamwork, and learn how to express themselves in a healthy and positive environment! The exciting thing about dance is that it hits two birds with one stone—it’s a physical sport matched with artistry, emotional liberation, and social development! Any young person will benefit from the offerings found in dance.
Through dance, youth are exposed to:
— Empathy for others
— Social Skills
— Making responsible decisions
— Team Work
— Understanding and managing emotions
— Decision Making
— Establishing/ maintaining positive relationships
— Emotional & Artistic Expression
— Locomotive Skills
