Culture, grace, agility, self-esteem, confidence, are some of the attributes gained through dance. In many cultures, dance is a part of everyday life. It’s a beautiful form of self-expression, age-old practice of communication, and just plain fun. Mastering the skill it takes to complete and execute complicated steps calls upon discipline and physical fitness. For all of these reasons and more, your child should be involved in dance.
At Dance Makers, we encourage all children, beginning at preschool age, to participate in the art of dance, through our age-appropriate class schedule. Our instructors lovingly inspire young children, as well as elementary age, pre-teens and teenagers, through the steps and routines necessary to master their particular level. Through a variety of dance styles, your son or daughter will gain confidence, become part of a team, and acquire a sense of pride and self-esteem which will serve him or her well for years to come.
Boys Dance Too
Dance classes for boys are an ideal way for your son, grandson, or special boy in your life, to have fun while honing the qualities appreciated in young men. By introducing your son to dance, you’ll provide him with the tools he needs to practice creative, disciplined self-expression, and respect for himself and others, while fulfilling that naturally competitive edge some boys seem to covet.
Motivation, discipline and respect are all called upon as dancers work together toward the end result-a performance-worthy routine. Dance classes for boys encourage community-building. At Dance Makers, we want everyone to get involved in showing appreciation for our young dancers, encouraging them and steering them on the path to greatness.
Dance classes for boys are gaining students. With today’s popular dance culture, through television competitions and mainstream recognition of dance as sport, as well as art, boys and girls are flocking to dance studios across the country. Pop-culture is figuring out what experts have long known, dance-whether classical ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop or modern, provides so many opportunities for a positive and successful life.
If your son is already involved in team sports, dance classes for boys can develop and hone athletic skills in ways no amount of additional coaching can. An awareness of his body, and it’s performance ability, can’t be learned on the field. There’s no ball, bat, or hockey puck in dance. Your body is your tool and performance is up to you.
Benefits of Dance Classes for Boys
For some boys-as well as girls-self-discipline is an issue. In the early grades or elementary school, lack of discipline can cause heartache for parents and students alike. Dance Makers helps your child develop a sense of discipline, respect for others, and self-respect. Your child will learn the qualities it takes to be a successful student, exceptional citizen and leader.
Finally, dance classes for boys provides your son with a creative outlet. Creativity is key to academic success and problem solving throughout life. Most of all, creative expression through dance is fun! Boys, especially, are whirling, jumping, and expending energy in all sorts of ways, seemingly, all the time. By channeling that energy into controlled movement, your son isn’t just learning the art of dance, he’s having fun. And, boy or girl, isn’t that what childhood is about?
