5️⃣ Benefits of Dance for Kiddos 💃🏻

IMG-7548

Spring is HERE!!!

And it's a busy time of year at The Dancing House!

Have you ever wondered what the benefits are of signing your child up for dance?? Here are just a few...

  • Physical Fitness & Coordination
    • Signing Your Child up for a Dance Class Is Signing Them up for an Opportunity to Exercise Their Whole Body–Arms, Legs, Lungs, Heart and Mind.
  • Social Awareness and Collaboration 
    • Dance is neither a team nor individual sport—in some ways, it’s both. A dance class provides your child an opportunity to express themselves around their peers, building confidence and communication skills.
  • Discipline and Perseverance
    • To move is natural and innate; to learn any form of dance simply requires practiced control or application of that movement. 
  • Cognitive Development
    • There is a lot of evidence that dance and creative movement help prepare young learners to read, write and gain number sense.  In other words, we should just be singing and dancing all day with our kiddos. 
  • Emotional Creativity and Wellbeing
    • Enrolling your child in a dance class will give them a platform and a place in which to learn about themselves and their own interests, abilities and uniqueness.

And this is exactly what we, at The Dancing House, want to provide for your child.

When enrolling your child up for dance it is important to sign them up for the age appropriate class. We want students to be the age of the class by September 1 for the fall season. This creates the best opportunity for your child to benefit from the above listed, and the many more benefits why dance is a healthy, advantageous choice for your child.



Does this describe you??

A strong education in tap, ballet or hip hop. A dance major or minor would be ideal, but is not necessary. However, a resume that includes prior dance experience is a must. And prior experience with children is ideal.

Strong memorization skills to memorize curriculum, names of students and parents.

Excellent communication skills via phone and face to face

OUR SUMMER CLASS AND CAMP SCHEDULE IS HERE AND IT'S GOING TO BE A GREAT SUMMER AT THE DANCING HOUSE!!


"Miss Melissa and the other teachers are amazing. My kids started with dance camps this summer, ages 7 & 10, with a love for dancing but no previous experience. They had a blast connecting with new friends, seeing moves from guest artists, crafting, snacking, and of course learning their new dances. They admired their teachers and wanted to make her special gifts in return :) Melissa helps the young dancers learn discipline, physical strength, coordination, kindness and joy." ~Natalie Ulrich

"I have been working with Melissa and TDH Team for the past couple of years and it has been fantastic. I bring my enchanted characters into her Dance Camps so I have gotten a bird’s eye view of the studio she runs. What impresses me the most is the way she goes above and beyond for her students. She wants everyone to have an exceptional experience. Whether it’s a standard dance class, themed dance camp, adult Boogie Fit class or her new toddler music and movement program, there is something for everyone and she goes out of her way to make it special, valuable and educational. She’s constantly growing and expanding her classes, style and most recently her space. She’s professional, talented, communicative, current and really cares about her students. It’s no wonder The Dancing House is the number one Studio in the Hudson area. I highly recommend Melissa and her team to get you and your child’s groove on!" - Nicole Fenstad

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

 

Brianna Larkin

 

Brianna Larkin

Brianna has been dancing at our studio for about a year and loves her 3-4yr tap/tumble class. She definitely knows what she likes. Those things include purple, pink, running, and ice cream. She is very fast! She started out pretty shy in class but has gained so much confidence and has really become a great leader. And she couldn't possibly be any cuter!! Thank your for being part of our dance family Brianna! We love having you!

 

 

 

Roy Larkin

 

Cute must run in the family...meet Brianna's big brother Roy!

Roy is in our Hip Hop class at The Dancing House

He is a super sporty kid! He loves soccer, basketball, golf, and dancing! When not dancing he loves playing with Legos.

Miss Ari really enjoys having Roy in class. He's super sweet and funny. He's always relating the similarities of dance with the other sports he plays. She says he's grown so much as a dancer in the past few months, his footwork and ability to remember choreography have really improved!! Thank you for your hard work and effort, Roy! We love having you at The Dancing House!

Mens sleeveless grey sweatshirt

 Men's Gray Sport Pocket Cutoff Hoodie

This super-soft top blends the best of two wardrobe classics and elevates them with quality fabric and finish. We started with the uber cozy hoodie and gave it the open, breezy feel of a muscle shirt. But, unlike the DIY cutoff of your youth, we crafted this top with grown-up details like four-way stretch fabric, metal drawstring eyelets, and double top-stitched armholes.

  • * Soft, mid-weight fabric with four-way stretch.
  • * Smooth, anti-pill interior.
  • * Sleeveless design with finished armholes.
  • * 2.5" ribbed hem and double top-stitched finishes.
  • * Kangaroo pocket.
  • * Contoured hood with 3" neck gate.
  • * Cord-style drawstrings with metal aglets and eyelets.
  • * Embroidered ZZZ and moon details.
  •  * Fits true-to-size, relaxed.
  • $49


Girls joggers

Girl's Black Jogger

Few items make a better wardrobe addition than the classic versatility of a light and stretchy jogger. This chic piece delivers comfort, breathability, and ease of movement, blended with fashion-forward style. We designed them to be so versatile that they pair just as well with ballet flats and a bun as they do with sneakers and a ponytail.

  • Three-channel, no-roll waistband.
  • Quick-drying, sweat-wicking performance.
  • Encased cord-style drawstring with plastic aglets.
  • Lightweight matte fabric with moderate four-way stretch.
  • Two generous front pockets.
  • 2” (5cm) elastic ankle cuffs.
  • Size up one for a relaxed fit.
  • Fabric: 100% Polyester.

$45
