Dancing and the BRAIN!
Want to encourage your little one to be more active? Yes toddlers are basically on the go ALL day long, but introducing them at an early age to a hobby like dancing is likely to help them build healthy habits for life! You won’t need to stress about your teenager lying on his or her bed playing games or chatting on social media all day if they are into dance. They will be too busy at their dance classes perfecting their moves and interacting with other like minded students in person instead!!
We all know that dancing is beneficial to our bodies in terms of exercise, but a study at Harvard University says it’s more than that and also has a positive impact on our brains! Have a look at their findings here
If this doesn’t encourage you to take up dancing, or at the very least get your little one into it from an early age, then nothing will! Basically it’s good for you in every way, PLUS it’s great fun! If you’re inspired to start dancing after the reading this, come along with your little one to a Tappy Toes class. I promise Mums and Dads we’ll have you boogying along with them 😉
If you live in the Hertfordshire area we have classes for adults in ballet, modern, tap and street dance too, so why not check out www.rise-studios.com and take up a class yourself?
