Dance lessons teach children respect and discipline. It helps to build social awareness in children, so they not only learn how to dance; they also learn how to respect one another. The maturity necessary to dance together fosters respect, civility, teamwork, cooperation, confidence and a sense of joy, accomplishment and achievement. Through experiential learning, they learn valuable life skills and lessons of self-discovery, self-expression, and self-confidence. Their posture and confidence improves and awkwardness is replaced with physical grace & poise.
