Thriving Recreational Program

We work hard for our Recreational Dancers!

Dansations works hard to ensure our recreational dancers receive an excellent dance education. We have a comprehensive program that will educated children from the age of 18 months through 18 years. Watching children grow up and graduate through our recreational program is a privilege we do not take lightly! Dancers in our recreational program will work hard, learn proper technique and be challenged in classes; all while making great memories that will last a lifetime!

Recreational dancers are offered a wide variety of classes to enrich their dance education. Dancers are invited to take 1 class or several classes. Dansations offers recreational classes in: jazz, tap, ballet, acro, hip hop, and lyrical. In addition, we offer special classes such as All Boys Hip Hop, Princess lyrical & split classes. All of our classes are fun and challenging!

Here are some secrets to our success:

Dance should be FUN!

The most important part of every class is to ensure our dancers are having fun! Dance is a gift that we want to share with your children. We want them to have fun and enjoy each class. We work to provide a positive atmosphere where children feel welcomed and comfortable in class.

One on One help in class:

Dance is a group activity, learning with a group is a lot of fun!! However, at Dansations, we also, believe strongly in 1 on 1 instruction. Teachers will take time in each class to review skills individually with each dancer. It is that extra attention where children really take off!!

Why Should Children Dance?

Here are 5 reasons why children should dance:

CONFIDENCE

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.

COURAGE

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. Dance will strength your child’s cognitive skills, you will see how the choreography and memorization of dance numbers will really sharpen your kids mind. Dancers are known to do very well in school. Dance teaches a variety of life skills including: independence, responsibility, a strong work ethic and leadership skills.

FUN

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.
