Kid’s ballet classes provider value in three key areas – physicality, musicality, and creativity.
Kid’s ballet helps children build confidence and learn controlled body movements that focus on strength, improving posture, and coordination. The movement required for children’s ballet classes is also a great way for children to get aerobic activity. Physical activity, in general, is so important for a child’s growth and development. Ballet classes for children provide a safe and positive environment for physical activity, even at an early age.
Children love music and they are naturally drawn to it! Through ballet classes, children can begin to build a deeper relationship with music which can be a lifelong gift that brings great pleasure. Through music, children develop connections through body and mind – engaging both hemispheres in the brain and creating pathways that improve cognitive functioning. While listening to music is wonderful for a child’s development, actively participating in music is where they make the strongest connections.
Learning how to express oneself through movement is an art form, and through kid’s ballet classes, children can begin to develop a relationship with dance and their bodies. Just like painting or building with blocks, creative expression through dance is important for a child’s physical development, mental and social growth, and helps them develop a strong sense of self.
