Back-to-School and Back-to-Dance 2022

5 Reasons to Enroll Your Kids in Ballroom Dance Classes

After a two year pandemic hiatus in kids dance activities, kids are not only happy to be back in school but also thrilled to get back to dance where they can engage their sense of movement and creative energy.

The benefits of taking ballroom dance lessons for children are numerous. Ballroom dancing is a great skill to engage and grow young minds. Just like swimming and biking, you can't forget dance, and it will serve you for the rest of your life.

Kids can learn more than just ballroom dancing with our classes. When you enroll your child in one of our ballroom dance classes, he or she will be able to develop important social skills while also being immersed in an introduction to dance. Let's get their hands and feet going in a fun environment that encourages them to use their imaginations, be curious, and be creative!

Here are the top reasons why kids should attend ballroom dance lessons.

Importance of Ballroom Dance for Kids:

Sense of Rhythm

Children often show a strong sense of rhythm while they are still quite young. It's natural for them to swing and move about to a beat and they are less inhibited by their actions. It’s the best time for them to get involved in musical movement and dance.

A Better Workout

This type of dancing is great for developing coordination, poise, posture, flexibility, and strength—all of which are essential for ballroom dancing. Because dancing is highly cardio-heavy but doesn't feel like cardio, ballroom dancing is one of the most effective forms of cardiovascular exercise for any age.

Limitless Opportunities

Sure, ballroom dancing might not have been your child’s first thought when they showed interest in learning how to dance, but they'll appreciate it in the long run. There are so many possibilities bundled into the thrilling adventure that is ballroom. Give this joy to your kid and reap the benefits, and see where it may take them!

Grow Social Skills

Children are taught partner-based techniques in a group setting by peers of comparable age and skill, all of which encourages better communication, team work, and strengthens friendships. Many dancers swear that dancing helped them overcome their stage fright of public speaking or performing. Young ballroom dancers will learn trust, teamwork, and cooperation in a safe and positive learning environment.


What we all want for our children is for them to find an activity that sparks their interest and allows them to succeed both inside and outside the classroom. Being a ballroom dancer gives your child a distinct identity that isn't tied to school. Rather than copying or trying to impress their classmates, this form of activity can relieve stress and promote confidence in them as individuals as they explore their creativity.
