The Benefits of Starting Dance/Tumbling Before The Age of 5

unnamed

Dance and tumbling classes are a fun activity for kids to exercise both their bodies and their minds. In addition it will increase fitness levels, posture, flexibility, creativity and a better understanding of how many different ways they can use & move their bodies.

Both dance and tumbling classes are a great way to help young children learn how to focus on things they may not have learned before. Starting at a younger age will allow their minds to start working right away and learn to focus in a classroom setting. They can learn how to take direction from another adult figure besides Mom or Dad. Most dance and tumbling classes are no longer than an hour for children under the age of 5. This seems to help many children who have never been in a classroom setting before and can learn the task of focusing before they move into a preschool/kindergarten class.

Starting classes at a younger age will also increase social skills and self esteem. As a toddler, children start to explore and their minds want to learn as much as possible. Being in a classroom setting with kids their age will help them get to know how other kids explore things and they can learn to interact with other children, especially if they don’t have the opportunity at home. By working on dance and tumbling skills in a classroom setting, this will increase a young child’s self esteem and can start their self esteem on a positive note. All teachers want the best for the students and will work with young children to try their best to accomplish something, even if it’s something as small as taking turns with another child in class.

Many children under the age of 5 have lots of energy. Attending a dance or tumbling class will help a young child to start to understand how to control their energy levels. They can learn to use different motor skills and strengthen their bodies in a fun way. They also will be able to use their creativity as much as possible.

I would love for your young child to attend one of our dance and/or tumbling classes at Bravo! We have a ton of opportunities for children under the age of 5 to get them started as soon as possible.

  1. This is some great information, and I appreciate your point that starting dance lessons at a young age helps improve self esteem. My daughter is preschool age now, and she’s mentioned wanting to dance. I’ll definitely look into getting her started now so she can build a solid self-esteem and have a good outlet for physical activity. Thanks for the great post!
