Dancing is a great way for your child to get active and develop physical co-ordination skills, strength and concentration. It's also great fun and a good way to meet other children and their parents. Furthermore dancing can become a much-loved hobby your child could carry on enjoying well into adulthood, for fun or even at a more professional level.
Dance fosters social encounters, interactions, and cooperation, and provides young people with a sense of community. Moving together can be a very unifying feeling and through learning to work within a group dynamic, and the challenges that come with cooperation and responding to instruction, children learn to better understand themselves in relation to others. This can be particularly helpful as children develop their sense of individuality as they approach their tween and into their early teen years, and serves as a foundation to the development of more advanced social skill.
