Dance has always been a huge part of my life. I remember in elementary school we even had square dancing in our gym classes! It was so fun but you had to touch a boy! Lol! The arts are very important for our children. Dance has gotten me through so many tough times as well as helped me be more successful not only in school but sports too! I am so thankful I branched out into many different genres of dance. They are all so different and each a challenge in their own. I see so many kids that focus just on hip hop or just ballet and I feel they are missing a huge piece of the dance pie! It’s also a beautiful thing to accomplish a routine with a group of fellow dancers and hear the roaring applause on show day. Some of my favorite memories from my childhood and still today as a performing adult!
This is a great article and I encourage you to get your kids in as many different dance classes as you can! Be their biggest cheerleader and guide them into sticking with new activities no matter how challenging at first. It can take weeks or more for some kids and adults to work out the kinks and get used to dance. But I can assure you, the rewards will be great!
