The benefits of dance for young children

With dance children not only learn how to have fun and be creative, they learn so many great attributes. Kids dance class is one of the best ways to get out all of that energy whilst learning discipline.

One of the most rewarding things that a parent has said to us here at Tippy Toes Ballet, is that their child started ballet class as a shy little person, and now they have blossomed into a self confident little ballet dancer! Just watching a child gallop alone, without holding on to Mummy or Daddy's hand is a delight, especially if they have previously seemed very shy about galloping!

We love to share in ballet class and we also love to have friends and hold hands. We find it so rewarding when children can skip around in a big circle together without needing a teacher. We want to teach children to work as a team as well as learning how to dance on their own.

Dancing to music at such a young age is always good for a child's musicality. They learn rhythms and how to count in dance without realising it. They also learn how to concentrate for a little longer each class, so that eventually they can remember an exercise or a short dance on their own.

Mostly we try to give children a wonderful ballet experience in each class so that they will fall in love with dance.
