When it comes to their kids, parents want them to have the best. Exposure to things like sports and the arts help them to become more well rounded young men and women. Have you thought about ballet?   Ballet dancers make it look effortless as they move across the stage. From the lifts to the toe points, many wonder how they can do it. Your kids can also be a part of this through the practice of classical ballet.   Ballet classes can start for young kids around ages three. For them, being in front of all those mirrors and the bar is something new and exciting.    Some of the benefits of ballet for young kids are:

  • They learn to follow instructions and work in group.
  • They gain a sense of discipline
  • They learn co-ordination, balance and how to control their bodies in motion, follow the rhythm and music.
  • They are active and getting daily exercise
  • They become comfortable performing before groups as well they develop social skills.

In the latter stead ballet benefits are:

  • They develop long and strong muscles from the practice of ballet
  • They gain a sense of self-confidence and pride in their bodies and what they can accomplish
  • They learn how to work to get what they want out of their performance
  • The skills learned in classical ballet are useful for other forms of dancing like tap or jazz if they want to take that up later
  • They learn about proper nutrition to keep their bodies in shape so they can dance.

More girls than boys do ballet, but the ballet that girls do is very different from ballet for men and boys.  Male ballet dancers have to be strong and athletic.  When scientists tested male ballet dancers against sportsmen, they found that the dancers were fitter and able to keep going for longer.  Lots of sports clubs invite Ballet teachers in sometimes to give the players a lesson!  It’s great for their balance, agility and core strength.
