Dance lessons are a great way to increase your child's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina. The repetitive movements involved in dance can improve muscle tone, correct poor posture, increase balance and coordination and improve overall cardiovascular health, plus it's pretty useful in channelling their seemingly boundless energy.
