The Physical & Mental Benefits of Dance
You’ve doubtlessly read countless articles and seen commercials about the importance of being active. Performing Dance Arts, one of the top dance studios in the GTA, tells parents that one of the best ways to get their kids active is through dance.
Dance, whether it’s jazz, hip-hop, or ballet, has many fitness benefits, especially for kids. For starters, it’s a great form of aerobic exercise; if you watch dancers in action, you’ve seen how athletic and limber they are. At Performing Dance Arts, we provide programs for kids at all levels of dance training.
In addition to being great aerobic exercise, dance has many other benefits, such as improving flexibility and range of motion. It also provides excellent strength training; how often have you seen dancers holding up their partners? Since it is a form of cardio exercise, dance is also great for helping to build stamina. Dance studios also provide a great environment for your child to make friends, so if your kid is shy, signing them up for dance lessons at Performing Dance Arts’ facility in Vaughan is an excellent way to bring them out of their shell.
Since dance is a form of aerobic exercise, it’s also a great way for your child to lose weight and stay in shape. Combine this with an improved diet and your child is well on the road to physical fitness.
Besides the fitness benefits, dance has many other advantages. Dancing with a group teaches your child the importance of teamwork and how to communicate effectively, and building a sense of trust with new friends leads to greater co-operation. Additionally, your child will feel much less anxiety in social situations and make friends more easily. Further, performing in front of a large group is an excellent way to overcome any anxiety about being in a social situation. As one of the top dance studios in Toronto and the GTA, we at Performing Dance Arts encourage all of this and more in our students!
Being a dancer requires intense focus and discipline, not to mention practice. This can be beneficial on other areas for your child, since they will apply this approach to their schoolwork, as well as lead to a lifelong appreciation for the arts.
Best of all, if your child suffers from low self-esteem, dance can build their confidence and let them feel more comfortable in their own skin. At Performing Dance Arts, our students enter competitions in Ontario and around the world; knowing that they were good enough to dance competitively is also an excellent way to improve a child’s self-esteem.
