Spend five minutes of your time reading the benefits of dance for your children from a preschool age and offer them the greatest gift you could give them. Dance!
According to international studies from World Dance organizations, it is shown that music attracts children from an early age and pushes them to dance! Besides the physical benefits that dance gives, it also provides them with social and emotional benefits, especially to preschoolers as they build their social skills such as cooperation, increase their self-esteem and interaction with other children.
Children learn movement patterns just as they learn the language. Often children dance before they even talk! So dance can become a way for children to express their feelings in a way that they are not able to express verbally.
When children are involved in dance classes, they learn that through their movements can tell a whole story and so to communicate in their own way.
According to Education.com young preschool children are egocentric, and may have difficulty in cooperation and participation. A child who does dance classes will have more opportunities to work together in harmony with other children in a group. Maybe a new child starting dance classes will not be too comfortable to dance with the others, but will try to move with them and perform their routine in order to become one with them.
Combining music and movement, children learn to control their bodies and this is an important development that may lead to more concentration and self-control. They mimic the movements of others according to the rhythm of the music and give their attention to the teacher to memorize the patterns of movements showing. Thus they develop better listening skills and control their impulsivity reaching gradually from disorder to order.
When young children dance together, they start and build a sense of community and appreciation of others who are with them in this course. They may also applaud each other for the efforts they make and encourage their classmates as they dance.
When your child learns a new step or when it completes a short choreography, it will gain a sense of accomplishment and thus its self-esteem starts to be built with it. He realizes he can control his body and his movements and thus develop a sense of autonomy.
In our dance studios, we give all of our attention and love to children and learn not only dance, but also how to become individually and socially for their future!
