The Importance of Developing the Vestibular Sense

Developing the vestibular sense is very important! This is why I really enjoy our game time in dance class. The kids spin, hop, skip, gallop, act like animals, etc. and have a blast while doing it on top of all the dancing! The obstacle course is one of their favorites! I used to love the parallel bars on the playgrounds growing up. We’d flip and spin and choreograph routines on them. We used to sprint to them when released at recess time to claim our spots. It was awesome! I think we all remember the merry go round too! Sheer chaos and someone was going to get hurt but we didn’t care. It was so much fun! This article explains the vestibular sense in great detail.
