We have categorized our dance classes for kids into two, where one is the 4 to 7 years age group and the other is the 7+ to 13 year age group.
Creative Movements | Age 4 to 7
Creative Movement classes are a fun-filled introduction to the world of dance. While utilizing Jazz based vocabulary many forms of movement and variety of dance are explored. Each class is designed to engage the child in a whole-body approach to learning. Dance lessons naturally engage a wide variety of gross and fine motor skills while introducing concepts of musicality, tempo, energy, and level. Language and listening skills are enhanced through a variety of songs. Social skills are encouraged by learning to take turns, follow directions, gain an understanding of personal space, partner work, and follow rules of classroom etiquette. Creative Movement enhances emotional growth through imaginative exploration and the opportunity to connect with and release emotion through movement.

Benefits of dance for kids
Improved Physical Health
Dancing is a highly physical activity, and kids who take dance lessons regularly should expect to see a significant improvement in their overall physical health. According to Pro Dance Center, regular dance practice can increase your child’s flexibility, the range of motion, physical strength and stamina. The repetitive movements involved in dance can improve muscle tone, correct poor posture, increase balance and coordination and improve overall cardiovascular health. Dancing is an aerobic form of exercise. For children who are overweight, it can potentially help them to lose weight and improve their eating habits.
In addition to being a physical activity, dancing is also a highly social activity. According to “FamilyTalk Magazine,” dance lessons can help children improve their social and communication skills, learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends. If your child is shy, enrolling her in dance can encourage her to reach out to other children her age and help to reduce her anxiety about new people or places. Dance can also help to alleviate fears related to performing in front of an audience.
Becoming a skilled dancer requires practice, discipline and focus, skills that can be useful in other areas of your child’s life. According to “FamilyTalk Magazine,” dance lessons can help to spark creativity in young children and help them to develop an appreciation for the arts. Students who regularly participate in dance lessons typically tend to perform better academically than their nonparticipating peers. “FamilyTalk Magazine” estimates that students who have a background in dance tend to achieve significantly higher SAT scores and do better in math and science competitions.
As children adjust to the movements and postures required in dance, they begin to get a better sense of their bodies. As they become more comfortable in their own skin, their confidence and self-esteem also improve. According to EduDance, dance lessons can encourage children to foster a more positive attitude and explore their own self-expression. This can be particularly beneficial for children who are physically or mentally impaired or those who are attempting to deal with significant emotional problems.
