Magic of dance provides children with impressive benefits

Sponsored content Jun 03, 2015 Hamilton Mountain News

A superb means of introducing your child to the art of dance and the many benefits of dance comes to life beautifully at Not Just Another Dance Studio  in Hamilton, Ontario.

Not Just Another Dance Studio understands just how important dance can be for children. Children love movement. From an early age, they develop a natural desire to express themselves and explore their joy of mobility through the many forms of movement. The benefits of enrolling children in dance classes are extensive:

•    Increased muscle strength, flexibility, and stamina

•    Improved balance, agility, and coordination

•    Increased discipline and focus

There are other important benefits to dance, too – some of which aren’t always fully appreciated at the time, but that are indispensable to a child’s development:

•    Social skills: Young children (as well as teens) learn about teamwork and the value of mingling and working together in the social atmosphere dance provides

•    Self-esteem: Confidence develops naturally through the many aspects of dance

•    Creativity: Children love to express themselves. Dance helps them with that expression, while encouraging the development of imagination and creativity. Memory also improves by learning routines and choreography.

•    Reduces stress and depression: Dance is a very positive activity that elevates mood and inspires cheerful personalities!

Young students who learn to dance develop skills that serve them well when they start attending school. Dance cultivates healthy, personal attributes that serve children well in their early schooling as much as throughout their lives. Dance helps children develop physically, emotionally, and socially, and is an enormous benefit to the growth of their cognitive functions.

Not Just Another Dance Studio is dedicated to building long-term relationships with students and parents through quality training and a commitment to improving students' dance skills and self-confidence. Since most children won’t become professional dancers, the school endeavours to teach students transferable life skills: to think creatively, to work collaboratively, and to solve problems wisely and effectively.

Not Just Another Dance Studio offers both recreational and competitive dance classes for children aged 18 months through to adult in creative movement, pre-dance, jazz/hip-hop, ballet/lyrical, tap, musical theatre, contemporary, street dance, Acro and yoga. Early-age children participate with a caregiver. Students learn to follow directions, take turns, and learn routines.

Check out the studio’s list of Three Questions Every Parent Should Ask Before Joining a Dance Studio  prior to making a commitment. For example, the studio uses an authentic dance floor that was designed and tested by dancers from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet! As well, unlike other dance schools, you’ll be able to see what your child is doing each week through special viewing windows.
