The Benefits of Dance Lessons
Dance art studios provide an excellent opportunity for people to socialize, become more active, and develop their creative skills, as well as lead to increased flexibility, reduced stress, and a lifelong appreciation of dance and the arts. Dance lessons are also beneficial because they help to slow the aging process and improve health; dancing burns five to 10 calories per minute, depending on the intensity of the dance, so imagine how many calories will be burned in a 60-minute dance class.
It is recommended that children receive up to one hour of exercise a day, and dance lessons provide an excellent way for kids to get that time in. This may seem like a daunting prospect to a child, but the instructors at a quality dance art studio know the importance of easing a child into an exercise routine, so most lessons typically match their fitness level and gradually increase in difficulty.
An Alternative to Sports
Sports aren’t for everyone, and some parents even prefer for their children not to get involved in them due to the risk of injury. Dance not only provides increased fitness, but proper lessons also encourage creativity.
Improved Brain Function
It’s been found that dancing boosts memory and may prevent the development of dementia later in life. Aerobic exercise has also been found to reduce volume loss in the hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls memory. The hippocampus shrinks as we get older, which can lead to decreased memory and dementia.
Dancing not only keeps you limber and flexible, but it also helps to keep your joints lubricated, which prevents osteoporosis later in life. If there’s a family history, taking dance classes may just help your child to stave off the effects of joint-related disorders as they age.
There’s a vast array of dances and just as many career opportunities. Go to any dance studio and they will have a wall of alumni who went on to bigger and bigger things. Whether it’s dancing in a show or teaching, the career possibilities that dance offers are huge; it can even lead to career opportunities behind the scenes that are just as rewarding.
Even kids experience stress, and dance lessons are an excellent form of stress relief, especially if they are performing with others.
Improves Blood Health
Regular dance lessons have the added benefit of aiding in lipid control, which helps to boost HDL “good” cholesterol while lowering LDL “bad” cholesterol. It’s also highly beneficial for heart health, reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease; in fact, patients with heart failure who took up waltzing greatly improved their heart health.
Dance classes will help to build your child’s confidence as they make achievements related to their lessons. This, in turn, will help to build their confidence and self-esteem, as well as their ability to communicate with others. Other advantages of dance lessons include improved grooming, since everyone wants to look good for their dance routines, and a reduction in the symptoms of depression.
