What toddlers can gain from dance class

Have you ever wondered what’s the best age for your child to start dance class? We think that a toddler is never too young to start dancing.

Dancing helps them develop important skills. Putting your toddler in a dance class will allow them to establish better social skills, physical development, and cognitive thinking early on. Who knew something as fun as dancing could have such a significant role in children’s early development…

 

Social skills

Social skills can be hard for children to learn. Dance class allows kids to break out of their shell and let loose with other kids their age. Dance classes teach your child patience and listening skills, as they must follow instructions from their teacher. These essential life skills can be developed now and applied throughout their life.


Physical development

Trying to get a toddler to settle down is nearly impossible. This age group seems to always be jumping off the walls. Whether it’s ballet, tap, or hip-hop, dancing is a great way for toddlers to get moving. It allows them to channel their energy and have fun. Dance classes help with the development of coordination, strength, movement, and balance.

 

Cognitive development

Cognitive development allows your toddler to respond to instructions and rules and then act on them. However, many children within this age group have a hard time understanding this notion. Heck, even some adults do too! Therefore, dance classes for two to three year olds require a different style of learning. Our dance teachers specialize in early development. They are able to connect dancing to common knowledge and life skills.

For example, some teachers will have the children leap over a “river”, usually a scarf, so they don’t get wet. This concept may be common to us, but this age group is just beginning to develop these everyday life skills.


Last word

Here at Dance To EvOLvE, we offer a fun and creative learning environment in which your two-three year old can start developing essential life skill. Toddlers are very versatile and you’ll be surprised at the vast amounts of knowledge that they can absorb!
