Physical and Psychological benefits of After Care Programs for children

Learning in school and from books just isn’t enough in today’s highly competitive society. At Dancer’s Gallery in Cooper City we offer an outstanding after care program for dancers of all ages that adds to the creation of well rounded, adjusted children. Whether your child is interested in ballet, hip hop, jazz or acrobatic arts the program is designed to help strengthen an existing ballet or hip hop skill, teach new ballet or hip hop skills and increase your child’s self-esteem. The after care program encourages children to meet other young ballet or hip hop dancers and share their experiences resulting in increased socialization skills. The after care program at Dancer’s Gallery in Cooper City also gives young ballet and hip hop dancers the opportunity to interact with other adults giving children the benefit of positive relationship building.

The supportive and encouraging atmosphere of the after care dance program also gives parents the peace of mind knowing that young ballet and hip hop dancers are reinforcing their academic skills through the homework help they receive at Dancer’s Gallery. Before dancers begin their ballet and hip hop classes they are given designated homework time where the dedicated staff is available to answer questions and offer guidance. A report by the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S Department of Justice shows that students in after care programs have fewer behavioral problems, more self-confidence and can handle conflicts better than students who are not involved in after care programs.

Giving your child the experience of being enrolled in a dance related after care program has tremendous benefits. Young ballet and hip hop dancers can increase their communication skills, build brain power, develop social skills, maintain a healthy body and nurture their creativity while attending after care at Dance studio in cooper city. Why not give your young dancer the competitive edge – enroll them now!

Dance Season 2015-2016 is Explosive!

The official dance season has begun at Dancer’s Gallery in Cooper City and students are getting situated in their appropriate classes.  The after-care program has exploded with close to 50 students and they are starting to get used to their new after school routine which includes such classes as ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, belly dancing, acro, aerial silks, musical theater and more.

Our recreational students are also enjoying their classes and were given the opportunity to try new things with the unlimited class promotion throughout the last week in August.  Many students found new interests in areas of dance they had never tried before and are excited to continue.  Dance can often be a stress relief from student’s daily academic schedule and it is amazing to see them let loose and express themselves through their movements.

Students are finding themselves getting back in shape physically after a long summer camp in davie break relaxing.  Dance, for many, is the most enjoyable way to stay fit both mentally and physically and research suggests that dance can help students improve in their academics as well.

Classes are currently focused in technique and within the next couple of months will start incorporating choreography in each lesson.  Learning choreography requires focus and memorization, both being important skills to learn and apply in many areas of life.

The Annual Winter Showcase on December 12th will give students an opportunity to share what they have learned and how far they have come from this point.  For more information on the various programs offered at Dancer’s Gallery call 954-437-9910 or you can stop by for a tour.  Dancer’s Gallery is located at 12323 S.W. 55th Street, Unit 1010, Cooper City, Florida 33330.  You can also find a detailed class schedule at http://www.dancersgallery.com and email any questions to info@dancersgallery.com.
