At King Centre Dance Studio, we believe that every journey begins with the first step. The first dance step, that is! If you are considering dance lessons in Wyckoff for your little one, we have the best programs for your child no matter what their age. If you want to begin your young one in dance class or your older child wants to learn, there is no time like the present.
We develop classes and programs for children of all ages. Their development is crucial to us as much as it is to you as a parent. We want children to be able to express themselves and be welcomed into a place where they feel safe and comfortable to open up and enjoy themselves and gain a little physical activity and coordination in the process.
For your child, ages three to four, we use movement and music to teach the basics of dance in a healthy, fun and creative environment. We instill creative movement, rhythmic jazz, pre-ballet, tumbling and tap into a fun learning experience for your child. For the older child, we have many genres of dance they can choose from to fit their learning styles and musical aspirations.
Dance has many benefits to children and adults alike. In children, it helps them mature physically, emotionally and socially. It helps with cognitive skills and helps develop many of the attributes of a growing child. Dance involves a great range of motion, coordination, strength, and endurance than many other physical activities. Dance uses the entire body and is an excellent form of exercise for most children. It keeps them moving and they are less likely to experience weight and health issues later on. It teaches coordination and control while allowing them to have fun.
Dance encourages social interaction with teachers and peers, where children learn to communicate ideas to others through their body movement. They quickly learn to work within a group setting. They tend to gain a better understanding of themselves in relation to others around them. Many children who take dance lessons make friends for life.
Children need to express their emotions and become aware of themselves and others. Through creative movement, they can understand emotional experience and begin to understand others through it. Young children learn cognitive skills when they understand movement and learn to respond to that movement. It teaches them to function and understand the world around them. These developmental actions are necessary for life.
