“I said-a hip, hop, the hippie, the hippie
To the hip hip hop-a you don’t stop the rock
It to the bang-bang boogie, say up jump the boogie
To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat?”
Today, as you may have guessed, we are talking about Hip hop! Kids Hip hop classes can benefit children of any age in an array of way. Here we reveal five for starters…
Allows freedom of expression
Creativity is vital to kids’ mental health, and giving them the outlet of dance is a great way to get those juices flowing! Enrolling your child in hip-hop dance classes can give them just the creativity break that they need after the rigours of a long day at school.
Promotes an active lifestyle
As childhood obesity in the United States continues to rise, hip-hop dance classes for kids might be just the thing to ward off weight gain. These classes are chock-full of new muscle movements and cardio that gets your heart pounding! An hour long class a day, or even just a few classes a week can help create healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
Acts as a healthy outlet of energy
Anyone who has kids, knows that they have enough energy for themselves and the whole household combined! Coming home after a long day of sitting in a classroom can make kids antsy.
Enrolling your little ones in an after-school hip-hop dance class will give them a way to learn how to focus that energy towards achieving a goal. (Not to mention it will give you a much-needed break after a hard day of work.)
Develops social skills
Kids dance classes can be extremely beneficial to developing good social skills at an early age. Participating in group activities, such as toddler hip-hop classes, can help your child learn how interact with other children as well as with adults.
Gives kids a safe space
Let’s face it: growing up is hard. Growing up in a big city such as Chicago also comes with its own set of everyday stressors. There is no better way to blow off steam in a safe space than at a Hip-hop dance class.
