Starting September 8th, 2015 Storm Ballroom Dance Centre will be offering a twice-weekly program of dance classes just for children aged six to 14 years. Classes will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30pm to 5:00pm at our Voorhees location. Our certified dance instructors will be teaching Cha Cha, Rumba, Swing, Foxtrot, Tango, Waltz and more. No dance experience is necessary.
Children benefit from learning to dance at an early age:
- Regular dance practice can improve your child’s overall physical health. It increases their range of motion, flexibility, posture and stamina. For children who are overweight, dance can also help them to lose those few extra pounds.
- According to “FamilyTalk Magazine,” dance lessons can help children improve their social and communication skills, learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends.
- Dance lessons can help to spark creativity in young children and they will develop an appreciation for the arts. Students who regularly participate in dance lessons typically tend to perform better academically than their nonparticipating peers. “FamilyTalk Magazine” estimates that students who have a background in dance tend to achieve significantly higher SAT scores and do better in math and science competitions.
- As children adjust to the movements and postures required in dance, they begin to get a better sense of their bodies. As they become more comfortable in their own skin, their confidence and self-esteem also improve.
