As the weather warms up and schools finish for summer, plenty of parents find themselves searching for daytime activities for their children.
Have you thought about sending them to summer dance camp? It can be a great opportunity for your kids. Here’s why…
Four benefits of attending summer dance camp
Improved physical health
Dance is a form of aerobic activity. It is a sure way to keep your child movin’ and groovin’ for an extended period of time. Regular dance practice can also increase your child’s flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina.
Improved learning skills
In dance class or summer dance camp, your child will develop the ability to focus and understand the concept of structure. These educational skills will stick with your child as they enter the new school year and will lead to an improved academic performance.
Dance provides children with an outlet for self expression. As children master new skills, they become more aware of how their bodies work and move. The upshot? They will feel more confident in themselves.
Improved social skills
As your child gains self confidence, they will also become more comfortable meeting new people and building relationships. As children learn different dancing skills and choreography together, they learn to work as a team and overcome shyness through fun performances. These are typically held at the conclusion of a camp session.
