WHY SHOULD MY CHILD LEARN TO DANCE?
BENEFITS OF DANCE IN PRE SCHOOL CHILDREN
For a Happy Feet Dancer (21/2 - 51/2 years) - imagination, music, movement and role playing is only the performance you see, but the real magic is happening with the development of their kinaesthetic learning and cognitive skills.
Children begin to communicate and learn through feelings and it is the first form of expression they use to share their thoughts. They begin to build their library of experiences through their senses and start to draw on those experiences to make decisions. “A healthy body, healthy mind” is a proven fact!
This is where dance has a very important place in the positive development of your child - we
- help to develop Physical, Social, Emotional and Cognitive Awareness,
- give them the tools to problem solve, estimate, and express themselves;
- bring out all the essential in giving children the confidence to be independent, self-sufficient, make critical decisions, be accountable and essentially that their new discoveries are valued and have real importance.
Through dance your child will become more spatially aware which forms the foundations of bonding and friendships.
Dancing increases the natural chemistry in our bodies that make us feel good which promotes wellbeing and positive self-esteem. Your child will begin to multi task their thoughts and to action them at the appropriate time. With the development and understanding of rhythm, movement and expression as one, your child will learn to link these seamlessly.
