Influencing adolescent youth with the “new cool”
Did you know that dance holds the power to completely change a child for the better? Caroline Augustin, founder of Blueheel Dance Studio says, “Kids may come to us shy and lacking confidence in themselves and their self expression, but by the end of the program they have discovered a new found sense of self esteem and a strong sense of achievement. We see this…in our Latin and Ballroom Dance Program for Kids.”
Augustin says that TV shows like “Dancing with the Stars” has given Latin & Ballroom dancing a new cool factor for kids. “They are being exposed to the more exciting aspects of partner dancing – cool choreography, stunning lifts and moves, beautiful costumes – and they want to be a part of the new cool.”
Dancing Aids in Development
Additionally, there is evidence which shows that developing a sense of rhythm through music and dance greatly enhances cognitive skills, speech development and behavioral patterns in adolescent youth. Dr. Susan Denham of Plymouth University, UK, researched how the brain processes music and other sounds, and found that, “people come into the world with brains that are wired-up to detect patterns.”
These reasons alone are some of the most basic reasons to enroll in dance classes.
