The Positive Impact of Art on Kids

Just Dance: Our Reno Youth Dance Classes Offer more than Just Rhythm

Kids-N-Art takes afterschool art programs in Reno a step further by offering dance classes. We understand that children love to play and most of our curriculum is designed to allow children to play constructively. Dance is a great way for children to burn off some of the seemingly endless energy they have in a manner that will help them developmentally. So how can dance be something that will help your child develop? The facts are that dance can help children in several facets of life; below we’ve highlighted a handful.

Improved Physical Health
Physical activity promotes your child’s health. This may seem like an obvious benefit, but dance brings more than just exercise. It also helps increase flexibility, correct poor posture, improve balance and develop coordination. These are skills that can take time for some children to master. However, dancing can put them ahead of the curve.

Develop Social Skills
Dancing is a highly social activity. Learning choreography requires following complicated directions and working with other children to achieve goals. This furthers a greater sense of trust and cooperation. For children who are shy, dancing delivers a boost in self-confidence that can also help pull them out of their shell.

Educational One-Up
Did you know that children who participate in dance tend to score much higher on SATs? Crazy, eh? This comes as a result of the amounts of practice, discipline and focus that dance requires. These are all skills that come in very handy at school and are some of the most difficult for a child to develop on their own. Dance gives them that extra edge to be successful far beyond the dance studio.

Kids-N-Art offers youth dance classes in Reno because we want to give your child every opportunity to be successful. We see dance as another tool we can put in their belts to lay the foundations for a very bright future. Our dance instructor has a great deal of experience teaching children and doing so is one of her joys. With several classes available, we can help you find the one that is right for your child.
