What Can Dance Do For Your Child?

It’s no secret that we are big fans of dance here at Mellado Dance Elite. Dance is fun to do and super entertaining to watch. Hopefully, you and your dancer love it just as much as we do. We have a little secret that we are going to share with you today. The fun factor is not the only reason we are head over heels with dance! There are SO MANY not-so-obvious benefits of dance that we cannot wait to share with you.

First of all, dance a form of exercise. It gets your dancer moving to improve cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, and coordination. As dance educators, we are always blown away by the increased coordination, especially in our youngest dancers, from the beginning to the end of the year.

Dance class is the perfect way to meet new friends and find a home away from home. Our dancers at MDE learn how to respect one another, work together as a team, and have FUN, all during dance class! You, the parent, will feel good about leaving them with us, knowing that they are in a positive and enriching environment. While your dancer will feel good about having an all out dance party with their friends weekly, it is a WIN, WIN!

We know that sometimes, life is stressful! Dance can be a great outlet for emotions and a relief from all the craziness that life brings. Each and every dance class at MDE fosters creativity and self expression. When things get tough, dance can be a way for students to get away from it all. It can also be the medium to create something that embodies what they are feeling. This skill takes practice and will serve your child well beyond their years in dance class.

Last but not least, dance promotes self-confidence. In each and every dance class, we set goals, practice like crazy, and then accomplish those goals. This teaches your dancer that they can take on difficult goals and make them happen (of course with some serious hard work sprinkled in)! At MDE we always maintain a positive environment where your dancer can grow and prosper without fear of failure.

Doesn’t that all sound amazing? The best part is that these benefits start kicking in even with the youngest of dancers. So basically, you can kick your feet up because having your child involved in an enriching activity like dance, means you are a GREAT parent! Doesn’t that feel good? We think so too!
