Can’t decide between ballet and tap? Choose a combination class!

Ballet classes

Here at Dance to EvOLvE we offer individual ballet classes and tap classes as standard. However, we also offer combination classes so that your little ones can study ballet AND tap at the same time.

Why do we do this? Because we believe exposure to different dance styles brings heaps of benefits. Taking combination classes is a good opportunity for tiny dancers to master both disciplines and learn the spirit behind each dance.

Benefits of ballet classes for toddlers:

There is no other dance form that exercises dancers’ muscles like ballet do. It works every part of the body from fingers and abdominals to bottom and legs. It helps develop long, lean, and strong muscles for a healthy body shape.

In toddler ballet classes, little dancers also learn coordination, balance, and how to control their bodies. Also, combinations that involve jumping and leaping increase heart rate, which can improve endurance, stamina, and overall cardiovascular health.

In addition, one of the mental and emotional benefits that occur through the study of ballet is focus and concentration.  Ballet classes for toddlers boost concentration through the process of memorizing movements in sequence.

What’s more, ballet offers a solid foundation for different forms of dance.

Benefits of tap dancing classes for toddlers:

Tap dancing classes for toddlers are beneficial to children in a different way than ballet. As dancers’ feet move continuously back and forth at a fast pace, tap builds strength in the legs and feet. It also increases flexibility in the hips, knees, and ankles.

Plus, the quick movements little dancers experience while tap dancing is sure to make them work up a sweat, and therefore burn their calories and increase cardiovascular conditioning.

The mental benefits brought about in a toddler tap dancing class differ from ballet classes as well. The disparity lies in the music. Tap dancing music usually consists of more beats and higher energy, while ballet music is inclined towards the softer, classical genre.

The nature of tap dancing music allows young dancers to develop a great sense of rhythm and timing. To incorporate tap steps with the tapping sound made by the shoes while following the beats in background songs, a high level of music awareness is enhanced.

Last word:

Ballet and tap dancing are two popular dance styles that totally different from each other: ballet is graceful and classical while tap dancing is quick-paced and entertaining.

Even though you and your little dancers may have a preference for one of them, taking a combination class will maximize the benefits for young dancers.
