When should my child start dance lessons?

Does your child dance every time she hears music? Do you picture your daughter pirouetting in a tutu or your son doing a Grand Jeté like Baryshnikov? Do you need a physical outlet for your child’s endless energy?

Then you might be wondering if it’s time to enroll your child in dance classes. Almost any child can benefit from the discipline of dance. Learning dance is an excellent way to increase self-confidence and poise. As children progress through dance training, they also become more fit and learn better posture and physical control, which helps them grow strong and straight.

So can your toddler begin to learn dance? Yes, of course. Many children of three and four years of age can begin to benefit from a basic grounding in dance or tumbling. We love working with children of this age because we can use our skills to give them a foundation of physical ability they can build on in the years to come. We have two classes that are perfect to get these young dancers started.

Once done with these levels, they can graduate into the 5 to 6-year-old classes, where we will continue to teach fundamentals of dance or tumbling. No matter what type of dance your child decides on – ballet, jazz, hip hop, musical theater or even cheer, these fundamentals will train his mind and his body to excel in his chosen style.

We’re happy to provide a Free Dance Analysis to help guide you in your choice. After all, we have ten different styles of dance we can teach. We can talk to you about the abilities of your child and whether he or she might be ready to start dance training. To request a free analysis, simply fill out our fun Free Dance Analysis. We will contact you and find about the interests of both you and your child and match you with the best classes for you.

You can have confidence in our ability to instruct small children while keeping things fun and interesting. We get great joy from instilling a love of dancing and the ability to enjoy grace and movement in the children of Florissant and the surrounding area. If that sounds good to you, call us today at (314) 921-5800 or request the dance analysis online. We hope to see you and your children in our studio soon.

Dance Recitals: Creating Memories One Step at a Time

If you ever took a dance class at a studio in Hazelwood, you no doubt remember springtime dance recitals when you got to show off everything that you had learned over the year. Recitals were also the time when you got to see the different dance moves that the older students in the advanced classes at the dance studio got to do. Your family came, sometimes even extended family, and it was a huge event.

Those memories stick with you after so many years because a dance studio that has a year-end recital is not just showcasing itself, but is allowing each member of the studio to shine, as well. No matter how nervous you were on the stage and actually danced, when it was all said and done, and you heard the thunderous applause, you had a sense of pride and accomplishment. You had also gained a greater self-confidence by getting up and performing in front of family, friends, and strangers.

Now that you are grown up and have children of your own, it may be time to start creating similar memories for them. Aside from all of the health, social, and even academic benefits of belonging to a Hazelwood dance studio, your children will benefit from the recital experience in all the same ways that you did.
