Ballroom Dancing For The Kids!

By Staff

Rhythmic dancing surely has a capacity to excite the attention of all people. It seems the ballroom dancing has a specific impact on all children's learning. It not only helps pupils learn to move but also move them to learn also.

Ballroom dancing not only helps improve children's behaviour but also motivates them to exercise. The dancing improves children's health and fitness, also builds their confidence and improves their relationship skills. Shy children's self-esteem was boosted, and they made friends as a result of the classes.

An evaluation of a national dancing initiative found that kids' attitudes to exercise changed because of the introduction of dance to PE lessons. The Essentially Dance project revealed that less sporty children became more interested in PE and children's behaviour also improved. The introduction of dance into schools through this type of scheme has the potential to positively affect social interaction within families and in local communities.
