The legendary Michael Jackson once said, “Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on.” Dancing is more than just grooving on the floor to our favourite songs.
Dancing has so many benefits that can enhance one’s life as it helps with physical and mental well-being. It is always good to introduce your kids to a new activity that can assist with their development and dancing gives them that and more.
Not only are your children able to learn a new skill, dancing can also help to express themselves and boost their self-esteem. Studies have shown that dancing can help children develop intellectual skills as it relates back to the ability to remember dance steps.
