5 Reasons To Put Your Toddler Into Dance

Here on the Dansations Blog we like to fill you in on the many nuances of dance and the beautiful things that occur within the dancer that really go unnoticed. As parents we love to see our kids succeed. Seeing them grow, evolve, and be inspired is unlike any other feeling. It’s not easy letting our kids get into something new, especially if it is an arena that you or your spouse may not have been a part of. If Mom or Dad weren’t dancers, they may not know what it really means to be a dancer. That’s what we’re here to do today! If you are the parent of a toddler and looking for something engaging and inspiring, here are 5 reasons why you might want to consider dance for your toddler!


Time spent with other kids is always productive for a child’s development, but learning and growing in the dance studio with peers helps a child’s confidence tremendously. Many times, kids are shy and quiet in the first days, but not after long you can see sharing, helping and assertiveness start to develop in your toddler.


Some kids are really BRAVE. Some kids are a little afraid. What dance can help teach is courage. Courage is a bit different than bravery. Courage is knowing that something is scary, and overcoming it and performing despite obstacles. Learning in the world of dance can help build courage and socialization.

Following Directions

Dance involves individual instruction, but also team instruction. Obviously you’ve seen choreography before, if you’ve ever seen dance performed. Dancing can be really helpful in developing a child’s attention and direction taking. Dancers learn the value of following direction and seeing the results of their hard work.

Memory and Cognition

You may not consider dancing to be something that would help build a child’s brain, but if you put your kid in a dance class you will see it first hand. Toddlers deserve all the instruction and development as possible during these crucial years, and you will see how the choreography and memorization of dance numbers will really sharpen your kids mind.


Of course all these things we talked about are great, but we can not leave out the biggest reason of all. DANCING IS FUN. It can help in so many ways but the bottom line is everyone that works at Dansations is committed to the world of dance because we truly love it and it is so enjoyable. If you are looking for a place to take your kid to have a great time, you’ve found it.
