After School Dance for Kids of All Ages

The Value of After-School Dance

Dancing gets the heart pumping, the adrenaline running, and the smiles flowing. It fortifies the muscles and bones. It develops expressive, musical, and motor skills. Dancing builds self-confidence, self-respect, and facilitates learning[1].

Adding dance to a school day offers an alternative to sports, for kids who thrive on noncompetitive forms of physical fitness. Dance is also accessible to kids who are visually, mentally, or physically disabled.

What happens during After-School Dance?

As kid-friendly music plays, Laurana leads a 50-minute session of freeform movement, skill building, and dance games. The session is interactive and motivated by a fun and playful atmosphere. Students are encouraged to be active for the entire session at a pace suited to their current level of fitness.
