Why Dance?

Though all of us—student and teacher alike—enjoy dancing, we know that dance is not simply just a “feel-good” activity!  There are distinct physical, cognitive, and developmental benefits to participating in dance classes.

Dance

  • is an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise    
  • improves coordination and balance
  • improves and develops fine and gross motor skills
  • assists in the development of one’s creative process and problem-solving abilities
  • improves a student’s memory, cognition, and sequencing abilities
  • can assist a student with language development
  • AND MORE!!!

Moving Miracles’ program philosophy references Harold Gardner’s Theory on Multiple Intelligences.  This theory, simply put, states that all people learn differently and that there are in fact eight primary ways in which a person can learn.  It has been demonstrated that the study of dance can assist a student in developing their abilities in the following areas:

  • Kinesthetic intelligence
  • Visual-Spatial intelligence
  • Musical intelligence
  • Interpersonal intelligence
  • Intrapersonal intelligence
