With summer just around the corner, kids across the country are looking forward to the freedom from school. Often indoor activities are replaced with outdoor ones and ballet classes are easily put to the side.
Big mistake! Summer is the perfect time for your little dancer to join a ballet class. Here’s why…
THREE BIG BENEFITS OF SUMMER BALLET CLASSES
* Summer ballet classes are great for young dancers who are getting ready to start their first year of school. Ballet class helps to teach kids structure that can be used in any classroom setting.
They learn to listen to the teacher, take turns, follow directions, get in lines and much more. Since ballet class is a more structured genre of dance, it helps to make the transition into school life that much easier.
* A summertime ballet class can also be beneficial to new dancers. The classes are typically smaller giving more one-on-one attention to the participants. This makes it much easier for little dancers to get comfortable. Since the summer schedule is shorter than a fall/ winter/ spring session, you can ‘test’ if this class/ studio is right for your dancer.
* Kids must move during summer. Even though it’s hot outside, little ones need to stay active so as to ensure that they stay strong and healthy. No one wants to see kids holed up inside their house all day playing video games. If it’s too hot outside, beat the heat in an air conditioned dance room while learning the fundamentals taught in a ballet class.
Bottom line? What are you waiting for?! Sign up for a summer ballet class.
