Our Dance & Movement Classes Have So Many Benefits For The Pre-School Child

Gross Motor Development

Gross Motor Development is vital for cognitive development. The more tummy time, crawling etc, the better that your child will develop their cognitive skills eg. pattern recognition and problem solving.

Each of those skills provide the foundation for cognitive development. Each act of motor planning helps to improve brain function. Properly matured vestibular and proprioceptive systems allows them to move safely through their environments. Core strength improves their ability to focus as they get older. Choreography, music exposure, and movement patterns set the stage for puzzles and problem solving, and early math skills.

Scapular and core strength are important for fine motor skills, including writing and drawing. Improved foot and ankle strength improve posture while walking and helps prepare them for athletics should they be interested as they grow.
