Dancing Makes You A Better Student

Quite often we hear from concerned parents that dancing too much will take away from their child's ability to do well academically, especially as they enter high school or move on to university.  While each student is unique with individual strengths and weaknesses, for the most part we find that those students that keep or introduce dance in their life have more success at school.  Here are a few reasons why:
  • Dance is the only activity that works both sides of your brain, which helps to expand knowledge as well as memorization skills
  • Dance reduces stress levels because it is a form of exercise as well as a form of expression
  • Dance enhances the quality of life of a student as they are more fit and feel more confident
  • Dance improves kinesthetic intelligence
  • Dance gives structure in a student's mind, making it easier for them to manage their time and complete assignments in a timely manner
And if those reasons aren't enough, did you know that the average dancer gets 30% higher on their exams than the average student who doesn't dance?!

Whether you take a class once per week or several times, we know that dance will help you academically - and its FUN!
