Dance choreographer, Rachel, created our Dance ‘Mash Up’ classes as a way for children to explore dance with a ‘party/holiday disco’ feel making them fun, enjoyable and rewarding with easy-to-grasp repetitive choreography.
This not only gives children a great sense of achievement as they quickly learn the moves but encapsulates so many other important benefits such as:
- Improved mood
- Increased confidence
- Enhanced gross motor skills
- Developing muscle tone and fitness
- Boosting memory
- Help with social anxiety
- Reducing stress
- Improve hand-to-eye coordination
- Heightened concentration
With one in five children in the UK suffering from obesity issues, regular exercise that focuses on fun is paramount! Dance Mash-Up is low-impact and high-energy fun, designed with children’s health and well-being in mind.
Like all aerobic exercises, the benefits are also felt long after the class has finished, including soaring endorphins that will make the kids excited for their next class! The Dance Mash-Up classes are extremely social which can really help with your child’s self-confidence. And regular dancing with steady practice can help improve cognitive learning.
Both mastering a sequence of dance steps and repeating them improves concentration, not forgetting the incredible sense of achievement when the routine is memorised!
