Dance classes and early child development

Academy of Performing Arts, Home of the Lone Star Jazz, can help your child excel with dance classes in The Woodlands, Texas."Aren't they too young to be dancing?" is a question often asked by those who may be unfamiliar with dancing and its value to a child's early development. The answer to that question is a resounding 'no', as long as the classes are age appropriate. The Academy of Performing Arts, Home of the Lone Star Jazz, discusses early child development and dance classes in The Woodlands.

How can dance classes benefit your child's early development?

Physical: The most obvious benefit is physical development. Little kids are developing their range of motion, balance, muscle strength and coordination. Repeated patterns of movement require the children to use their entire body to reach levels of fitness unparalleled by other age-appropriate activities.

Social: Social skills are formed as children learn to take turns, be on teams, cooperate, wait patiently, share, form lines and support one another's performance. The group environment during classes also challenges children to learn to respect others as they move through dance routines together.

Cognitive: At a young age, children understand that movement can be used as a response to an idea or problem. Asking a child to leap over a "river" (scarf or mat) so they don't get wet can surprisingly set in motion the concepts behind the physical leg extension, transference of weight, problem solving, imagination, balance and space recognition.

Emotional: To a child, dance can allow them to learn how to constructively express their emotions. Dance classes provide a structured outlet for a healthy physical and emotional release that helps develop emotional maturity.

Dance classes are of great benefit to early childhood development, as long as the classes are age appropriate. We invite you to visit the Academy of Performing Arts, home of the Lone Star Jazz, where we give every student the opportunity to shine, through participation in dance classes, drill team activities, competition and music lessons. If you are in The Woodlands and are interested in enrolling your child, call us today at 281-681-8323.
