Importance of dance for children
Rowans host a dance and fitness class for the nursery children, older and younger.
Here we discuss why it is important for children to get exercise into their lives, more specifically dance.
The inclusion of the arts is slowly reducing in many mainstream schools leading parents to seek out other performing opportunities for their children to partake in. To view the teachers that visit the school and host these Dance & Fitness sessions, please click here.
First and a foremost, the obvious benefits dance and fitness provides children is weight control. It’s an enjoyable source of exercise for children, promoting healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure along with aiding in maintaining a balanced lifestyle.
In fact, it has been said that children require approximately half an hour of structured activity per day paired with one hour of unstructured activity. They should be encouraged to be active throughout the day as this does improve coordination, aids sleep and flexibility. Dance is an exceptional way for children to be constantly active along with have fun in the process! It encourages children to use their whole body, from stretching, bending and reaching, to a musical beat which they will truly enjoy.
The result of dance and fitness is feeling happier and well exercised.
