Why dance is great? Well, you don't need to ask me! I LOVE DANCE so much so I do find myself spinning or doing a Jeté to the Kitchen... yep that's right! Even I do it at my age :)
Dance brings so much joy my heart is just bursting as I write this. The sense of accomplishment doesn't always happen straightaway, but as long as you are having fun trying, that's an achievement in itself, right?
The following 5 are just a few of my favourite reasons for loving dance. So if you're stuck for ideas on how to convince them to leave the gadgets alone and get them to dance, fret no more. Be warned: you may end up wanting to dance yourself!
1) Express Yourself
Be it through drawing, singing, sport or writing, having a creative outlet should always be valued. Dance is one of those creative expressions that is loved by everyone. And that's the main point! Dance is for everyone. You can be a budding Ballerina in the Ballet class dancing to the tune of Swan Lake or the Dancing Queen at your Nanna's ABBA theme party! Don't Judge, I love a bit of ABBA :)
There are of course a few instances with a child when they just don't want to come to dance... and that's ok. Don't need to force them to come to class, maybe there is a reason behind it? It could be something simple like not having the correct leotard or they think they will get it ‘wrong’,
