How Our San Antonio Children Dance Classes Can Improve Mental and Physical Health

San Antonio Children Dance ClassesThese days, too many children experience unhealthy levels of depression and anxiety. Learning to dance is a great way of managing these issues. According to the BBC: Dance and movement are known to have physical and psychological benefits for those with mental illness.

Many children experience depression and anxiety because they don’t know how to express themselves. Dancing can provide the expressive outlet they need.

Our San Antonio children dance classes can also improve mental health by improving physical health. The art of dance requires a lot of energy. Even refined dance forms like ballet are physically demanding. With dance, your child will get the same mental and physical benefits as they would with exercise, dance being an exercise in itself. By improving physical health, mental health will naturally see benefits as well.

Dancing has been shown to provide:

  • Better heart and lung health
  • Increased aerobic health
  • More muscle strength and endurance
  • Better muscle tone
  • Motor fitness improvements
  • More bone density (and a reduced risk of osteoporosis)
  • Weight loss
  • Better coordination, balance, and spatial awareness
  • Better flexibility and agility
  • More overall physical confidence

Deciding The Right San Antonio Children Dance Class

Here we’ll be going over the various classes we teach at our dance studio. You can learn a little bit about each class, but when it comes right down to it, your child can’t be 100% sure if a dance class is right for them until they try it. However, keep in mind that many skills they learn in one dance form can be transferred to another, so if they get into one and decide it isn’t for them, the experience wasn’t a waste of time.

Here’s what we offer:

San Antonio Children Dance ClassesBallet

Having its origins dating all the way back to the early 15th century, ballet is associated with class and elegance. Ballet may appear to be a “soft” dance form to the observer, but it actually requires a great degree of energy and discipline on the part of the dancers. It is a rewarding skill to learn and will offer your children many benefits.

Jazz

This is one of the most dynamic San Antonio children dance classes we teach. It can also be incorporated into a variety of other dance classes because it is so open to improvisation and creativity.

Hip-Hop

If you’re looking for a fun, creative, and loose dance form, Hip-Hop is a great choice. It involves plenty of improvisation, particularly in its more freeform styles.

Tap

Tap dance is an energetic and visceral dance form that involves the sound of tap shoes striking the dance floor. It is one of the best dance forms for getting out pent up energy and aggression and can be truly expressive and rewarding once you get the hang of it.

Specialty Dance Classes

We offer a number of specialty dance classes, including:

  • Tumbling 101
  • Jewels & Co.
  • Urban Expression
  • Beginning to Intermediate Modern/Contemporary
  • Intermediate to Advanced Modern/Contemporary
  • Combo I
  • Combo II
  • Mommy & Me

Quinceañera Choreography

Our San Antonio Quinceañera dance classes can teach young children how to really put on a show at your next Quinceañera. The great thing about Quinceañeras is that there is no set, required dance form, so you can incorporate any of the above dance forms into your next San Antonio Quinceañera dance party.
