Benefits of being a dancer
Benefits of dancing for kids
Most parents want to help their children grow and develop in each stage of life with different opportunities that are provided. Although it’s common to enroll kids in various types of sports, dancing is a popular activity that offers many benefits. When you want your child to be physically active and learn new skills, there are a few reasons to get your kids dancing with the help of an instructor.
Young children have a tendency to become shy and avoid making friends when they become intimidated by group settings. Enrolling in a dance class can make it easier to form new friendships by improving their communication skills. They’ll also learn how to work as a team and trust other individuals that they’re getting to know. The physical activity can help your child learn how to face their fears and develop more confidence when it comes to approaching other individuals.
Healthy Body & Mind
Dance classes for kids are known to get little ones moving where they can be physically active and have plenty of fun in an upbeat setting. Your children can become stronger as they learn how to perform various exercises and movements that will also improve their flexibility. Dancing is also known to improve their posture and coordination over time.
Kids dance classes will help your child have a greater sense of their body, which can be a boost to their self-esteem. They’ll learn to explore their own form of self-expression and become skilled in an activity that makes them take pride in their newfound abilities. It can even make them feel more comfortable in their own skin as they develop and grow while expressing themselves in a new way. Confidence that is developed can lead to more success in school and can also help your child become more involved in other sports or activities in the local community.
Dancing is an effective solution to alleviate stress or anxiety in children. Dancing releases endorphins, which can improve the mood of your children and allow them to feel happier in life. Endorphins work as a natural pain-killer that is known to decrease tension and work as a coping mechanism for stress, espeically with children who have behavioral issues. Listening to music while dancing can also offer an escape for children who may suffer from anxiety.
One of the most important parts of developing is learning trial and error. Although it can be easy to quit, children will learn how to continue perservering when they fail, which can develop a strong work ethic that influences other areas of their life. Learning how to perform complicated movements or exercises will allow kids to feel rewarded when they tackle certain parts of dancing, which will make them work harder in school and with their relationships.
What our students and parents say
This class is so valuable not only for the dance moves but for the cultural and historical contexts that are taught to the students as well. I highly recommend this studio for parents looking for a good extracurricular activity for their kids
Моя дочь занимается в Unicorns второй год, и ей очень нравится. Много друзей, динамичные и веселые танцы, она даже дома пританцовывает, поет слова песен все время. Хорошо и то, что занятия помогают поддерживать русский язык и дают хотя бы небольшую часть русской культуры. Группа много выступает на крупных ( и не очень) мероприятиях Мельбурна. Еще нам очень нравится педагог. Лиля не только замечательный хореограф, но и очень внимательный человек, и всегда спокойно находит подход к любому ребенку.
В “Unicorns” мои дети занимаются уже больше 3 лет. Уроки всегда проходят очень интересно, разнообразно, в замечательной атмосфере. Дети очень любят эти занятия, ведь на них они встречают своих друзей, учатся новым танцам и очень весело проводят время.
Big thanks to Lilia and Unicorn studio for their role in bringing the culture of Spanish folk dance to my daughter and son who both have taken classes here. Now they have such an interest in the culture and language they didn’t have before. We are even planning a trip to Spain next year to give them a reward for their dedication!
Our two daughters have been going to Unicorns for 4 years. They are now 9 years old and 7 years old respectively and they love their dancing with Lilya. They have had such wonderful experiences of performing traditional dances in public at many Melbourne festivals and events. The dancing has given both our girls confidence, lots of enjoyment and friendships. Lilya is amazing with the children and as such the kids respond to her extremely well. Unicorns dancing is just part of our girls life now; they can’t imagine not doing it.
The Unicorns dance studio has a wonderful program with a lovely teacher who treats each student as her own protégé so every child feels as if they belong and are a part of something very special which they absolutely are, especially when they can participate in something like the last Kapusta dance performance!
If Lilia taught a class like this for adults, I would be the first to sign up for it! She is such a solid instructor and she is adored by my own kids so I would also recommend to any other parents out there too!
I am grateful for the development in my boys’ range of dancing and gymnastics skills. The emphasis on stretching has really made a big difference on his flexibility and also gives him the warm up he needs to tackle some more intense poses.
The students develop at a pace that is appropriate for their age and there isn’t any pressure on them like at other studios where the kids are forced to try to keep up and end up frustrated.
