Adding dance into your homeschool routine is a growing trend around the country because it is an excellent way to get your student’s education moving!
At SASPA we offer a curriculum that motivates and inspires your child!
Benefits of Dance in Education
There are many benefits of introducing dance in to your homeschool curriculum. The first being that movement and expression come naturally to young children. Secondly your child can have fun through dance as they are gaining important lessons in fitness and bodily awareness. Lastly dancing burns calories and tones muscles, which meets physical education requirements, but it also fulfills standards for arts and music appreciation.
Dance requires students to identify rhythm and keep count of music. Some forms, such as Mexican folklorico dance or Irish dance, ask students to remember and perform complex mathematical patterns.
Dance can also increase attention and focus and can be integrated throughout the day to help kinesthetic learners, students with special needs, or kids diagnosed with ADHD expend energy and organize thoughts through focused movement.
