IN ADDITION TO DANCE TECHNIQUE OUR PROGRAM GOALS ARE:

  • Creative Expression: Dancers will work on improvising, manipulating rhythm, musicality and develop flexible thinking. Cognitive Competencies: Dancing helps develop a child’s vocabulary of symbolism; sizes, shapes and colours and provides guidance for paying attention until a task is complete.
  • Social Competence: Dancers interact with other, express emotions, practice sharing, taking turns and having and being friends.
  • Health: Refining large motor skills, understanding safety concerns, developing trust in their own capabilities along with the obvious effect on physical fitness are some of the health benefits of dancing.
