Looking to keep the kids entertained this summer break? Enrol them in a summer dance camp and they’ll have the summer of their lives! Here are four reasons why summer dance camps could be an awesome experience for your little ones…
Summer dance camps keep your kids moving and grooving, thus improving their physical health, flexibility, balance and coordination. Plus, other activities offered at a kids’ summer dance camp, such as games and crafting, often take place outside and serve to bring the little dancers to summer’s signature fresh air and sunshine.
Develop new skills
Not only do kids learn new moves in dancing, but they also can become competent in playing different instruments. Moreover, they are able to discover their artistic talents in crafting. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what one happy parent had to say: “The performance on the last day was really amazing in showing ALL that they accomplished in just one week. The fact that the kids knew an entire tap routine, could do their individual ballet performance, and incorporate instruments and puppets as well, was no small feat in such a short amount of time!”
Summer dance camps can help build self-confidence. As children master new dance skills and become more aware of how their bodies work and move, they will gain a sense of accomplishment and pride. Check out this testimonial: “My kid absolutely loves your EvOLvE summer camp. It has helped her self-esteem to see that she has some natural talent as a dancer.”
Learn teamwork and social skills
All Dance to EvOLvE camps culminates in a performance intended to showcase what the kids learned in summer camp. In the final Friday performance, dancers themselves organize the show as a team. They learn how to communicate with their peers effectively in student choreography, music selection, show management, and costume design. Throughout the process, students learn an important lesson that is helpful in their real-life after camps: contributing to the success of the group is empowering to each individual.
