Benefits of dance for children

A 2013 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that freestyle dance, forces the brain to regularly use its neural pathways, especially in regions that control our mental skills, long-term memory, and spatial recognition. Participating in dance can help make your children smarter and keep their bodies in good shape; they’ll be able to reap all the benefits of regular exercise without the struggle of consciously exercising.

1. Neuroplasticity

Dancing will cause the brain to reroute its neural pathways, increasing neuroplasticity. Neuroscientist Daniel Glaser says that this happens because “the movements become thoroughly mapped out in the brain, creating a shorthand between thinking and doing.” the better your child’s neuroplasticity is, the easier it’ll be for them to lean, understand, and remember concepts they learn later in life.

2. Mental capacity

The acts of imitation, repetition, coordination, and exploration of movement to the rhythm of the music will promote memory training and coordination, even in the very early stages of infancy and childhood.

3. Cerebellum boost

The movement from thinking about dance moves to actually performing the dance moves will shift brain activity from the cerebrum, to your cerebellum; the part of your brain that controls your equilibrium, balance, and coordination.

4. Creativity & Self-esteem

Dancing can empower your toddler, and increase the sense of self-esteem, by letting them assert their individuality. In addition, observing your child’s creativity through dance can give you a unique insight into how they think and how they perceive the world.
