Dance helps children develop a sense of body awareness, it helps with confidence and social skills. It allows for creative expression, for individuality and provides exercise and healthy living.
Dance can help those who struggle with language by presenting an opportunity to communicate without words. It allows room for creative thinking and the acceptance of varied concepts; it stimulates intellect.
It can foster a sense of peace. Dance allows you to express the inner you in a fun, energetic and engaging way that is non-judgemental.
When children are engaged with the world around them, they are more prepared to interact with it, learn from it, contribute to it. Dance is a vehicle that stimulates this engagement.
Through dance children become aware of the space around them and are given the opportunity to practise using their fine and gross motor control skills.
