Why Online Dance Classes Are A Great Alternative Activity for Kids this Summer

While staying close to home is the more comfortable option for some families right now, as parents, we also know it is important to continue to find activities to lift our children’s spirits, bring them happiness and help keep established a daily routine. Online dance classes are a great option for kids to still be a part of a social, healthy, and fun activity with other children they may not otherwise have the opportunity to engage with.

While we can’t wait to return to the face-to-face interaction of in-studio dance classes, virtual dance classes provide students a place to be creative and enjoy dancing together.

Benefits of taking online dance classes:

Maintain Some Normalcy & Routine
Virtual dance classes allow dancers to continue to have an activity at home that is an important component of their daily routine. Even when we are staying close to home they can still do something they enjoy and foster a sense of normalcy.

Social Relationships & Interaction
Dance classes at home provide social interaction with instructors and other dance students while adhering to social distancing guidelines. It’s vital for kids to maintain communication and interaction with their friends and continue making new ones.

Opportunity to Try Different Dance Styles
Online virtual dance classes provide an opportunity for students to explore new dance classes in the comfort of their own home. Stepping out of their comfort zone and trying a new dance style like jazz, ballet, hip hop, or contemporary can be exciting and challenging. Go for it!

Practice Practice Practice….Makes Perfect!
Dance is an art form that requires consistent practice to maintain technique, posture, and stamina. Online dance classes help students maintain the skills and techniques they have been learning in in-studio dance classes. During virtual dance classes, our dance instructors will help your child improve their current dance skills plus learn new ones.

Good for Mental Health
Dance is a form of exercise, which raises endorphin levels and improves mood. Discovering new ways to improve mental and physical health is paramount for our children with all the changes they have experienced this year. Dance provides an ideal channel to reduce stress, build a positive mindset, and just have fun.

We can’t imagine our world without dance!
