Benefits of Preschool Movement Classes at BA Studios in Tucson, AZ ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐ŸŒต

A dance class brings such a โœจ magical element โœจ to a child's life. The clean, open studio, the soft music, and the chance to embrace their imagination with movement can provide so many benefits to a child's mental and physical development.

Before we even learn to speak, we use motions and gestures to learn to communicate effectively and to learn and change ideas about ourselves, our friends, family members, and the environment. Every child is born with creativity that should be cultivated, making it a crucial part of their development.

Dance classes promote artistic exploration, practice of positive social skills, and multidisciplinary education. Dance will increase fine and gross motor skills like hand/eye coordination, balance, increased flexibility, and teach spatial awareness.

1. Artistic Exploration ๐ŸŽจ ๐ŸŽถ :

In the early stages of development, it's important to encourage some artistic freedom. Dance gives children an opportunity to explore new, fun movements, musicality and rhythm, and use their imagination to be the best versions of themselves. With fun activities, educational games, and learning to count and dance to music, children have a chance to grow their own personal artistic skills.

2. Positive Social Skills ๐Ÿ—ฃ :

Children have a lot to say and sometimes can't express it. Our movement classes can help children improve their social and communication skills, learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation, and make new friends. With opportunities to move and talk in a structured studio, young students can learn how to communicate in a kind and positive manner.

3. Improved Motor Skills ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ :

Kids learn the basics like walking, running, and jumping but what's next? It's important kiddos are taught basic movements like skipping, hopping, gliding, and more. Why? Learning and mastering these basic movements helps increase coordination, flexibility, balance, posture, and best of all, can prevent future injuries. Kids love to move, why not teach them ways to do it safely?

4. Spatial Awareness ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ :

Kids love to explore and love to wiggle. The key to promoting positive spatial awareness in kids is giving them opportunities to explore their surroundings. Your child is beginning to build spatial vocabulary with words like: above, below, inside, outside, etc. With dance classes, your child can practice these terms verbally and physically. They can learn spatial awareness with other dancers, and how to appreciate being respectful others space. With the chance to practice performance dances, students also learn stage terms like right, left, center, downstage, upstage, etc.
