How Ballet Strengthens Your Dance Foundation
Ballet may seem like a demure and slow dance, but it takes hard work and skill to do. Ballet is an incredibly challenging dance that works every muscle in the body. There are fast spins, high jumps, smooth yet quick movements, and serious balancing. Dancers must learn how to balance their entire body weight on just the tips of their toes—and that’s no easy feat. Here’s why ballet dance classes in Toronto are important for strengthening your dance foundation.
It Gives You a Better Understanding of Your Body
Ballet classes in Toronto help kids to get comfortable with their bodies and helps them understand how their bodies work. From the top of their head to the tips of their toes, they can learn about the different muscle groups, as well as their strengths and limitations. This helps kids become more aware of their bodies.
Builds Strength & Endurance
Ballet requires dancers to balance on the balls of their feet and hold high extensions at different positions. These exercises help dancers build long lean muscles, without developing “bulky” muscles like other sports do. With all the elongation, stretching, and fluid movements, the muscles grow strong and long, and the dancers stay lean and in great shape.
It Improves Poise & Posture
It’s easy to tell when someone is a ballet dancer. Their poise and posture are always straight! Ballet training demands that dancers maintain an elongated spine and square hips. Since grace is also built into the technique of ballet dance, dancers become more graceful in all their movements. The best part about learning this skill is that it lasts for your entire life!
Familiarity with Timing & Rhythm
Classical music is very complex in terms of timing, rhythm, structure, and quality. Since classical music is the foundation of ballet, your child will learn to understand and appreciate the complexity of the music.
It Enhances Technique in All Dance Styles
Ballet is the perfect dance for kids to begin with. It creates a solid foundation for all other dance styles. Many finalists on shows like So You Think You Can Dance made it because technical ballet training was at the core of their skill. This training makes all movements more polished so whatever style of dance your child grows into, they will stand out.
It Builds Confidence
Look at any ballet dancer and you’ll notice how they carry themselves with confidence. Ballet helps kids gain confidence, giving them something to work hard at and excel at, and teaches them about artistry, musicality, and grace of ballet.
