The movements involved in dance can improve muscle tone, correct poor posture, increase balance and coordination and improve overall cardiovascular health. Dance lessons can also 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. As children adjust to the movements and postures required in dance, they begin to get a better sense of their bodies. As they become more comfortable in their own skin, their confidence and self-esteem also improve.
