Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area funnest, friendliest dance studio (http://www.dance-pizazz.com), is committed to the health and happiness of its dancers. This is especially true for younger students, who are receptive to new and positive influences in their lives. In an effort to help younger dancers develop and stick with healthy habits that will stay with them for life, Dance Pizazz wants to share some reasons why children of any age should get on the dance floor. Ballroom dance has been proven to:
Be great exercise: as an age-appropriate workout, ballroom dance engages the child in fun and constant movement. This is a sure way to keep the cardiovascular system active while lowering the child’s risk of obesity. Dancing also requires balance and proper posture, helping children develop proper alignment -a key component to performing exercise correctly-, enabling the healthy and proper growth of bones and muscles.
- Boost cognitive ability: many studies have shown that children and teens who exercise also have increased learning ability and concentration, which helps them perform better in school and social situations. These positive findings were exponentially greater in children and teens who not only exercised, but did so on a consistent basis; therefore, a fit child = a smarter child!
- Be an excellent form of artistic expression: unlike most forms of exercise, dancing requires verbal and non-verbal communication, a key in boosting confidence and developing social skills. Because communicative youth are less likely to suffer from anxiety and depression, expressing themselves artistically can literally help them approach the oft-challenging teen years with balance and positivity.
- Develop discipline: studies have shown that those who started to exercise at a younger age are twice as likely to continue doing so well into adulthood. Compared to counterparts who started exercising later in life, those who started earlier have a considerably lower risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and other life-altering diseases. All in all, nurturing the habit of exercise from an early age can literally save a child’s life.
