Is your little one ready for dance lessons? Studies have shown that the earlier a student starts a dance class, that they enjoy, the more they will appreciate the art of dance as an adult. "Experts agree that dancing is a wonderful activity for children of all ages. Not only is it an excellent form of exercise, but it also teaches grace, coordination, rhythm and self-confidence, and it inspires creativity and self-expression" (EverydayHealth). While all dance classes are not created equal, be mindful when chosing a dance class to be sure your student is not only learning, but having a great experience at this tender age. So whether your student is going to be the next Misty Copeland or simply a fan of the ballet, starting them early can support healthy decisions while inspiring their appreciation of this wonderful art form. The sooner the better!
