5 reasons why your kids should dance in kindy & year 1

Ballet and Jazz for Kindy and Year 1

So why is dancing good for my child?

1. rhythm and musicality

During our kindy dance classes kids are exposed to different types of musical instruments and rhythms; With age-appropriate music and choreography, our Kindy kids learn best with familiar songs that are aimed at their age level that make Mum happy too!

2. skills for school and dance class etiquette

Kids learn more than just dance. Lining up, taking turns, following 5-part instructions, left and right, manners and more. Thus strengthening their listening skills and ability to learn and pick up quickly.

3. nurtures confidence, boosts self-esteem and enhances focus

Consistent, caring adults are important for kid’s healthy development. The rapport/strong bond between a ballet and dance teacher and their students is very special. A child’s first ever ballet teacher is a hugely important person in their lives. Learning processes involve internalizing, rehearsing and repeating. Kids feel a huge sense of accomplishment through skills learnt in dance class.

4. enriches cultural appreciation and knowledge

Children who dance gain an appreciation of classical ballet, if not to make dancers then to make an appreciative audience.

5. promotes bonding between like-minded students who enjoy music and dance

Ballet friends are lifelong friends! Through shared experiences, strong bonds are made. When the chips are down at school it is always nice to have another circle of friends.

Kindy is the perfect time to introduce ballet and jazz dance movement vocabulary at a faster pace, and with higher expectations.
