The Benefits

Ballroom dancing helps in a multitude of ways for the overall development and growth of your child. It is a sport that's non-violent and provides a low impact way of fitness training whilst maintaining a good body posture for both boys and girls all the while building strength and endurance. 

Dance can often aid other sports training, as it teaches the student how the body's muscles work.

Overall Wellbeing

Along with general health benefits, dance helps develop coordination and balance and has the added advantage of aiding in areas of growth such as self-confidence and self-expression.

In the Ballroom genre, the dances have different rhythms with varying time phrasing and steps. Dance can help with problem solving and provides mental stimulation when learning the technique and steps involved within each dance or dance style, with each dance being different from the others.

Week by week, your child will learn about different rhythms and over time will develop an appreciation of movement to music.

Learning Team Work

As well as self-discipline, your child learns to work as part of a team and will form lasting friendships from the social interaction with others at all levels, respect for others and politeness.

The Art of DanceSport

Dance is both an art and a sport, and this helps our children grow with better skill sets through their developing years.
