How does performance develop a young dancer?

For dance students, the annual recital is the biggest event of the year

We are big believers in getting children to perform at an early age. Of course, it helps to develop their performance skills as they grow and develop into stronger dancers. However more than that, we think performance is an opportunity to develop life-skills.

A dance recital is a fun experience that creates memories for a lifetime. It is a wonderful chance for family and friends to see what the dancer has learned in class.

The preparation for a recital is important as the dancer is developing memorization skills, rhythm, technique, teamwork, and more. Dancers learn to be proud of what they have learned and accomplished with their dances.

It’s important for children to understand that when you work hard at something, you are rewarded with a great experience, some fun, and pride in your work.

Dance recitals are a common end-of-year dance activity in which parents, friends and family can watch the hard work from the year

A recital also gives the dancer an opportunity to be on a stage and to perform in front of an audience. This is a truly needed life-skill. Being able to get up in front of a group will prepare them for group projects in school and public speaking their entire life. 

We know many parents who are hesitant to have their child perform for one reason or another. However, the earlier a child begins performing on some level, the better.

With that said, performance can bring on some nerves or different emotions but that is perfectly normal! Unfortunately, we see a lot of dance studios or teachers putting unnecessary stress on the children when it comes to the recital so be sure you are comfortable with the studio’s philosophy on performance.

Also, check to see if the teacher will be dancing with their younger classes as this makes a huge difference. Ask how long the show will be so you understand how long the kids will be backstage. Some studios, like Dance To EvOLvE, even allow volunteer class moms to be backstage. Knowing that you could stay with your dancer might ease some anxious feelings.

When a parent is hesitant to enroll their child in a recital because they are shy, we always say: “You never know what we will get on show day. We have seen stars of the class freeze on stage and our shyest students shine. It’s all part of the experience.”
