3 Reasons to Enroll Your Son in a Dance Class March 14, 2019

3 Reasons to Enroll Your Son in a Dance Class, Honolulu, Hawaii

Although kids get the chance to run around during gym and recess, many spend time at home watching TV, playing video games, or texting friends. If you are looking for ways to keep your son active, don’t rule out enrollment in a dance class. Similar to participating in sports, your child will learn discipline, and how to channel his energy, to succeed both in and out of the classroom. If you are on the fence, here are additional ways boys benefit from dance lessons.  

3 Ways a Dance Class Will Benefit Your Boy 

1. Build Strong Muscles

Whether studying ballet, tap, or modern dance, dancers use abdominal and leg muscles to hold and follow through with different poses and move with the rhythm of the music. While warming up, they stretch to keep muscles loose and limber. Rehearsal offers a complete body workout, helping your son develop stronger muscles and better posture. The strength gained in dance class will come in handy if they decide to add sports to their list of extracurricular activities.

Similar to team sports, dancers must work together to achieve a common goal: translating their movements into a story for the audience. During rehearsal, your youngster will learn how to work with peers to accomplish this goal. Knowing how to communicate positively with others will help them succeed in school and when they enter the workforce later. 

3. Boost Confidence

If your child is reserved or shy, taking a dance class will help them come out of their shell and improve their self-esteem. They will receive words of encouragement and constructive feedback from teachers and classmates, which will make them eager to focus, exceed expectations, and master routines. With newfound confidence and perseverance, your son may be more willing to work at other challenging areas in school, which could lead to better grades.
