1. Improved Physical Health: Dance is a form of aerobic activity; it is a sure way to keep your child movin’ and groovin’ for an extended period of time. Regular dance practice can also increase your child's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina.

2. Improved Learning Skills: In dance class or summer dance camp, your child will develop the ability to focus and understand the concept of structure. These educational skills learned will stick with your child as he or she enters the new school year and will lead to an improved academic performance!

4.Improved Social Skills: As your child gains self confidence, he/she will also become more comfortable meeting new people and building relationships. As children learn new dancing skills and choreography together, they learn to work as a team and overcome shyness through fun performances often held at the conclusion of a camp session.
