The Life-Long Benefits of Dance

With funding for the arts in public schools at a steady decline over the years in Western New York, children need a physical outlet for many reasons. Studies have shown that participating in dance can lay the groundwork for children to develop a more balanced lifestyle that is less reliant on ‘screen time’ and more grounded in positive physical activity that results in an array of positive physical and mental health benefits.

Physical benefits of dance

  • Improved cardiovascular health 
  • Increased strength, endurance, and overall physical fitness
  • Improved coordination
  • Improved balance and flexibility

Other healthful benefits of dance include

  • Increased physical confidence
  • Improved mental dexterity
  • Improved social skills and communication
  • Overall greater sense of self-esteem
  • Better psychological well-being

In the formative years of a child’s life, self-esteem and healthy habits run hand in hand. At Dansations School of Dance and Acrobatics, we teach dance and foster a love of movement for your child from the age of 18 months to 18 years. The discipline and control your child can gain from learning and training their minds and bodies in a positive light has lasting effects throughout their life that promotes creativity and allows each child to embrace themselves as individuals.

Reduce Stress

With all that is going on in the world today, good, and bad, children need an outlet. The physical act of dancing and trained movement allows a child to gain a sense of independence and self- confidence while working through the stresses of the day with a positive light. Dance has been shown to combat anxiety and depression by supplying a child with the physical, mental, and emotional tools to expend their energy more positively, leading to a healthier chain of emotions and reinforce positive connections with their own body.
