Benefits of Dance for Children
Dance to Enhance Development
Ballroom dancing has definitely gotten more attention lately, thanks to TV, but parents are probably more interested in the fact that dancing can have real benefits and lead to more successful, creative and intelligent children.
Movement, dance, physical education and theatre are kinesthetic arts and comprise a different kind of learning that can enhance cognition, positive attitudes and confidence. Some research even indicates that kinesthetic learning may stimulate the growth of new brain cells!
So kids engaging in these activities may develop improved social skills, self-discipline and reasoning/concentration. Who wouldn’t enjoy becoming more physically fit, intelligent and happy while also enjoying a stimulating social activity?
