Ballet is one of the most beneficial forms of physical activity that one can do. In keeping a balanced and healthy lifestyle, ballet not only strengthens and elongates essential muscles that are used in everyday movements, but also strengthens muscles that only dancers use. Stretching with proper form is also a valuable element of ballet. Ballet students will improve strength, flexibility, grace and overall coordination.
Tap dancing is a fun style of dance that anyone can learn! Tap dancing is beneficial in many ways including increasing cardiovascular conditioning, strength, flexibility and coordination. Tap builds strength in the legs and feet in addition to increasing flexibility in the hips, knees and ankles. Cognitive abilities are also enhanced, as tap dancers must develop both mental and muscle memory to become proficient at tapping. Tap dancing also develops a great sense of rhythm and timing. Best of all, tap is just fun!
