18 Oct Why The Art of Dance Is As Important As Academic
Extracurricular activities are important for the development of children. It is a great way to keep your child active and mentally engaged. Although parents may be tempted to place their child in additional tutoring as an after school activity, here are some reasons why dance classes may be a better option for your child:
Engages Their Artistic Side
At daytime school, children must focus heavily on academic subjects such as Science, Math, History, etc. Although this is important for their academic development, it is also important to engage the other side of their brains. Enrolling your children in dance will allow your child to get in touch with their artistic side as dance will challenge them in movement, music, rhythm, and art made through the body.
Gain Strength and Endurance
Dancers may make their art look effortless, but the truth is that it takes a lot of hard work and grit to be a dancer. It requires strength of the body, discipline of the mind, and persistence in order to practice the challenging movements and prefect their skills. Once this kind of mindset is instilled in children, they will also apply it to other aspects of their lives such as daytime school.
Instills Love of Learning and Challenges
The art of dance establishes a love of learning. Dancers must constantly perfect their skills through endless practice, but the passion and love for their art makes it all worth it. As dancers learn to express themselves, how to grow and work as individuals and a team, and how to get better at their art, they gain the skills that will follow them into their home life, school life, personal life, and other extracurricular activities.
Dance isn’t just an activity to keep your child occupied and busy; it is an art form that holds many different benefits in regards to their academic and personal development. It creates passionate, skillful, dedicated learners and gives them the skills that they need to reach their greatest potential in every aspect of their lives.
