Do you like to dance? Do not feel afraid to express yourself through dance. It is an art that will most certainly keep you nice and fit. Below are reasons why dancing is a healthy art.
Children move naturally. They move to achieve mobility, they move to express a thought or feeling, and they move because it is joyful and feels wonderful.
Dance involves a greater range of motion, coordination, and strength than most other physical activities. Dance utilises the entire body and is an excellent form of exercise for total body fitness. Young children are naturally active, but dance offers an avenue to expand movement possibilities and skills.
Children enjoy the opportunity to express their emotions and become aware of themselves and others through creative movement. Movement within a class offers a structured outlet for physical release while gaining awareness and appreciation of oneself and others.
Children learn to communicate ideas to others through real and immediate mode of body movement. Children quickly learn to work in a group dynamic.
Young children will create movement spontaneously when presented with movement ideas or problems that can be solved with a movement response. Movement provides the cognitive loop between the idea and the solution.
