Dance is no longer considered as a hobby but now is considered as a holistic exercise which is used to build a person’s mind and body. It is really beneficial for the students to indulge in dance classes as it is a mix of art and exercise which connect the mind and body and keep the students fresh and active. Let us take a look at the five reasons which explain how important it is for the students to join dance school:


  • Increases kids’ engagement in an art form


As stated above, dance is a holistic activity for the mind, body and the soul, and it aligns these three important body parts together. It makes the participants aware of their weakness and strengths creating an opportunity to identify them and work on them. It also provides the introverted students with a platform to express themselves. Many introverted students have benefitted in changing their personality positively after attending the dance classes. Students end up learning dance and experience something that highlights their spirit while staying physically fit.


  • Stress buster


Music is considered to be therapeutic, and dance is the physical interpretation of what the music says. It is a great way to express emotions, release energy and shed inhibitions. Good music and good dancing keep a person in a happy state of mind. When you dance, you sweat, and the body releases feel-good’ endorphins that make you happy. So, dancing also keeps the students stress free.


  • Develops the personality


In the present time, where most of the time is spent on smartphones on social media apps, dance is an excellent hobby for the students to make them learn, enjoy and stay physically fit at the same time. Each class follows a teaching pattern targeting skilful progression to improve fitness levels, confidence, concentration, team spirit, positive thinking, discipline, all-round development, posture, and body language. 


  • Positive channelizing of the energy


Dance also works as a medium for students, both for physical activity and creative activity, channelizing their energy in a resourceful manner. This helps the students to develop skills, knowledge and understanding.


  • Makes fitness a lifestyle for students


Dance involves cardiovascular/ aerobic fitness, core and strength training and stretches for flexibility. It helps to improve overall fitness, endurance, strength, and muscle toning. 

Different forms of dance involve different forms of workouts. For instance, ballet dance targets inner strength, balance, and posture. Hip hop/ B Boying dance involves exercises that require stronger arms and legs. So, any dance form you choose needs to become a part of your routine to experience and appreciate its impacts. And, once the student starts enjoying the dance routine, it naturally becomes a part of the student’s lifestyle.

Therefore, dance should not be considered as a co-curricular activity anymore; instead, it should be considered as a part of a daily routine to stay fit and healthy.
