If you are a parent who is thinking of ways to keep your child active, you may want to enroll your child in dance. Dance is a great physical activity. Dancers learn to connect their mind and their body through hard work and dedication. These traits carry over into school work, as it's proven time and time again that dancers are excellent students. Being able to stand on a stage in front of hundreds, even thousands of people and showcase your talent is priceless. Most importantly, as children mature, dance provides a positive expressive outlet - both emotionally and physically.
