Dancing benefits a child's education. Through dance, children not only learn the benefits of exercising, but they also learn coordination, balance, flexibility, stamina, stability, memory and discipline.
Research shows dancing boosts a child's self esteem. Dancing makes children feel good and helps them gain confidence in their own abilities.
Children have a short attention span, which is why it's best to limit dance class time to less than an hour.
Dancing requires memorization. Children improve their overall memory when trying to remember steps.
Dancing teaches children how to listen, whether it be instruction or for the beat. When children are listening, they are not talking.
Dancing shows children how to interact with their peers in a positive manner. Dancing at a young age is non-competitive.
