Dance is a great experience for children of all ages, and is open for those as young as two years in age. Children use their bodies to express emotions and to cooperate with other dancers to complete a choreographed routine, which gives them valuable insight regarding communication and teamwork. Dance is a foundation of musical and physical education, which has long-term benefits for both boys and girls. Dance classes are structured and promote listening skills and encourage children to follow specific directions. Many children that dance develop self-esteem and create lasting friendships with others in a unique and enriching environment.
