There are so many wonderful benefits to dance, including physical exercise, creativity, building neural pathways and building confidence. For today we want to focus on how dance in a group setting can improve social skills. It is extremely important in today’s digital world that we intentionally immerse our kids in social settings, and learning a new skill alongside others will build a foundation for working with others in school or work.
Dancing can help children to work as part of a team, as they navigate through new moves and routines. Learning in a group setting can improve relationships between individual students as they master skills together. Having social skills is important in every setting in life, and the relational tools that your child learns while dancing will carry over into school, work, and all of their future interactions. Learning a new routine as a group builds relationships and gives your child confidence in social interactions. Dance can build a strong foundation of working together, being challenged, and solving problems.
