Can dance classes benefit your toddlers? Absolutely. Your little one can start benefiting from dance class as early as six- months old, but ultimately it is up to you, the parent, to determine when you want your child to begin.
As a teacher and founder of the toddlers’ dance class here at EvOLvE, I can say without a doubt that my dancers never cease to amaze me. Toddlers are very versatile and you’d be surprised at the vast amounts of knowledge that they can absorb.
Dance to EvOLvE offers a YOU&me parent interactive class for little ones as young as 14-months all the way up until two years. What we offer is a fun and creative learning environment in which your little one can start developing essential life skills. Think coordination and social skills which can help forge a deeper bond between parent and child as well.
What if your child is younger or older than those defined ages? It’s important to keep in mind that every child develops differently. This means slightly younger or older students are perfectly acceptable. For example, a 12-month old can enjoy and benefit from the class, but will be physically limited. Students who are eligible for older classes are still welcome too.
Many dance studios say that three- years old is the average age for a student to start learning dance but there is so much dancing fun to be had before then.
Bottom line? If you’re simply looking for a class that introduces movement, music, and fun…it’s never too early to start! Get them dancing!
