Daily dance practice | North Shore Dance Society – Glencoe

Daily dance practice is an essential aspect of a student’s overall development, both physically and mentally. Not only does it enhance physical strength and flexibility, but it also improves focus, discipline, and creativity. However, it is essential to practice under the guidance of a quality dance teacher who can provide the necessary instruction and feedback to ensure proper technique and prevent injury.

Physical Benefits

Dance practice is a great way to improve overall physical fitness. It helps students develop muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility. Daily practice improves cardiovascular health and reduces the risk of obesity and other lifestyle-related diseases. It also improves posture and balance, which is essential for maintaining a healthy body.

Dance requires concentration, focus, and discipline, which helps students develop mental strength and agility. Regular practice promotes self-confidence and self-esteem, which is essential for overall personal growth.

Regular practice enhances the ability to express oneself through movement and develops a sense of artistic appreciation. Daily dance practice also helps students to develop a keen sense of rhythm and musicality, which is beneficial in other areas of life.

Importance of Proper Guidance

It is crucial to practice dance under the guidance of a quality dance teacher who can provide the necessary instruction and feedback. A good dance teacher can help students develop proper technique, prevent injury, and foster a love for dance. They can also provide a nurturing and supportive environment that encourages students to take risks and grow as dancers.


In conclusion, daily dance practice is essential for a student’s overall physical and mental development. It promotes physical fitness, mental strength, artistic expression, and creativity. However, it is essential to practice under the guidance of a quality dance teacher who can provide the necessary instruction and feedback.

Ballroom and Latin dancing for kids – North Shore Dance Society Glencoe

Ballroom and Latin dancing for kids


The choices we make for our kids will often determine their future and it is up to us and us only to help them be their very best.

Ballroom and Latin dancing are often highly recognized as a first choice for parents and kids in many parts of Europe and Asia. Dancing in general is one of the very best options when it comes to sport and art.


Not long ago, I read an article written by a mother, trying to choose the right activity for her 6 years old son (mom is not a dancer). Leaving in the United States of America, her obvious choices were baseball, American football, hockey and perhaps basketball. Friend of hers told her that a dance studio just opened down the road and she decided on giving it a try. Three months later, she wrote the article I am talking about, describing how happy she and her son are. Choosing good posture, elegant costumes, music, good shoes, coordination and soooo much more, apparently turned out to be a decent choice.


I have started dancing at the age of 6 and for that will forever be grateful to my parents.

Dancing helps kids in many ways. Some of the benefits that I believe dance would give to all kids are:


   ~Fitness – at young age, kids will experience fun associated with fitness activities early in life and that would create life – long positive fitness habits. Over time, kids will build great stamina and incredible posture to carry for life, regardless dancing or not when they get older.

   ~Mental Focus – learning how to concentrate on a task and achieving goals.

   ~Balance – walking in sync with music, creating movement with different speed, shape the body in many ways to accompany the styles you learn and so much more.

   ~Social Skills – communicating with your teachers, dance coaches, dance partners, friends that dance at the same studio, meeting people during dance events.

   ~Strength – try dancing jive for only 2 minutes and you will know what I am talking about… Dancing is one of the most physically demanding sports and it requires constant strength improvements.

   ~Flexibility – improved range of motion, through holding or transitioning between different dance positions and moves.

   ~Coordination – Hand-eye coordination improves writing ability while eye-tracking improves reading readiness. To coordinate your dance movements with music and your partner is a science in a league on its own.

   ~Burn calories – Helps keeping your body in a great condition, prevents weight gain and gives jumpstart to a healthy life.

   ~The Sport of all Sports – dancing would help prepare your child for all sports, activities and most importantly – life.

   ~Discipline – no explanation needed here….


Every parent have a choice, when it comes to sports and activities. If we fully understand that our choices will make the difference for the kids we are raising, all should be fine.

 My parents made a choice many years ago and now I give you my point of view.

Our dance studio works with kids of all ages and helps them achieve their goals.

Thank you all for reading and happy dancing!
