10 Reasons Why You Should Encourage Your Child to Dance

There are many ways to let your children explore their individuality. Some would show inclination towards certain activities at a certain age. There are some children who would show a liking for the culinary arts; others towards acting and performing. Some parents may even see their tots groove to certain music and exhibit moves that shows a dancer’s potential.

If your child has that impeccable groove when he or she moves, it is always good to encourage your child to develop their dancing skills. Why? Let us look at some reasons:

  1. It helps build their stamina, motor skills and coordination. Dancing helps your child’s physical development most especially their strength and stamina.
  2. It improves their sensory skills. Dancing enhances your child’s development through the different senses: their auditory skills when they need to harmonize their movements to the music, their spatial reasoning especially when they dance with a group, their hand-eye coordination and so much more.
  3. It helps them express themselves. Dance helps children express themselves. Your child will exhibit moves to express their thoughts and feelings.
  4. It gives them an outlet for stress. With the rigid assignments and school work, your child needs some outlet to relieve the stress and dancing can be an amazing outlet.
  5. It allows them to find their individuality and at the same time work with a team. There are many benefits when one dances. Dancing helps one find the niche that can best express his or her soul through different dance genres (ballet, hip-hop, etc.) and at the same time, allow social interaction and teamwork through group performances.
  6. It expands their horizon. When one learns the art of dancing, they get to learn different genres and different cultures where specific dance movements come from. This will allow them to appreciate how one dance differs from one another.
  7. It greatly enhances their creativity. Dance, like other performing arts, helps one develop his or her creativity through different dance movements.
  8. It teaches them discipline. Training for solo or group performances will instill discipline in your child. This can be a building block in his or her other undertaking in the future.
  9. It enhances their focus and concentration. When training for a dance, your child’s focus and concentration are also enhanced.
  10. It is a form of play. The beauty of dance is that it teaches your child all these life skills while exposing them to a not-so-rigid and formal environment.
