As a dancer increases her training and her class load begins to increase, she learns valuable time-management skills through balancing dance with school, friends, and family. On top of that, staying healthy is important and vital to a dancer’s success. Prioritizing, multitasking, and making choices based on her interests and schedules lead to a strong ability to manage her time and instill discipline later in life.
Receiving consistent feedback is common in the studio starting at a very young age. Dancers know that feedback and criticism are not negative, but rather constructive tools to improve and excel. The idea becomes positive and assists with growing.
We have covered how dancers grow and learn to push themselves individually, but one of the most important aspects they learn is to respect their peers. Dance, no matter the style, will teach young children to be respectful and work well with others. By learning teamwork, problem solving tactics and respect, dancers discover some of the best practices to establishing and maintaining relationships.
