Kids & Dance

Dance as a source of education, culture and self-promotion and expression, is a healthy and necessary experience for any person.

In recent years and to date, dance has become socially accepted and vastly popular through television and reality dance shows. Dance is publicly broadcast in television and has become a normal fixture in most homes and excites people of all age groups.

More importantly, dance shows have educated people about the need to be disciplined, to work out, and to enjoy dance.

Teach children how to dance is a pleasant experience. The learning experience for children is centred around fun but also offers them much more significant benefits and skills by a standard pedagogical and didactic education.

Music, movement, technique and rhythm cultivates the perception of harmony and beauty in the soul of a child from an early stage, guiding them into self-discipline, self-control, emotional independence, mental integrity, social harmonization, guidance, mental growth and enhanced social skills. It is important to note that dancing in ancient times, was often considered an intermediate way of teaching human socialization, particularly for young people, especially because it was a way for them to meet and interact with their peers and their elders.

Dance for children, on both an individual and team basis, instils effort and fair play (or noble competition) that develops between the individual and the team during the course. Children socialise, learn how not to abandon their efforts, learn how to gain self-esteem, patience, perseverance and confidence, including how to pay respect for others and to respect rules of fair competition as the right course dictates. Children learn to mutually respect the rights of others, and to expect others to reciprocate similar behaviours. Specifically in group dance setting, children are taught the rules of equality, rights and collectivity.

Dance as an exercise provides physical superiority and poise by exercising each muscle group responsible for the proper support of the body, all whilst learnt in an absolutely healthy environment like that of a dance school. It also provides an advantage of their time being spent in a creative and accelerative manner. All this of course requires strong interest, commitment, desire, presence, time and effort; all of which are elements that most children have!

Dance has and always will be a great preparing point with social skills, morals, rules - all of which are derived from technique. Thus a child learns how to be compatible or compromise with the properties of their current environment and how to obey them clearly, courteously, and with respect.
