Why Dance?

There are so many wonderful benefits of dance throughout an individual’s life. We at TDC feel the most important aspects of dance are discipline, self esteem, time management, sportsmanship, good health, & friendships.

 The following are other great reasons why one should dance!

We hope to see you dancing with us soon! ~TDC Staff

Balance, grace, and good posture 

When learning dance techniques, particularly ballet these are all part of the movements that are encouraged and promoted.


According to experts, dancing helps build muscle, burns fat and elevates heart rates, all good for fighting childhood obesity.


While learning to dance, the movements are repeated which helps move everything together with momentum.

Motor Skills 

 Dance is always near the top of the list when the experts talk about the development of gross motor skills. Dancing is a great way to get those large muscles moving!

Self- Expression 

Children who are shy or have trouble expressing themselves verbally can express themselves through movement.


Mastering a move or technique can give children a feeling of empowerment.

Release Energy 

 Dance gives children an opportunity to use their energy with a positive outcome.

Social Benefits 

 Not only can dance help with team building, but it offers children the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and try new things while making new friends.


Children move all of the time but when you add music something magical happens! For most children it’s natural for them to try to move with the sound.

"Dancing is for LIFE!"....
