5 Reasons Why Ballet is Brilliant for Babies!

by Yvette Embleton

Have your ever thought about taking your little one to a Ballet class? Here are 5 Reasons why it’s Brilliant for Babies and Toddlers.

1. Ballet Boosts Confidence

By taking your little one to a ballet class at a young age, they’ll become comfortable performing in front of an audience. This is a skill that’s transferred from ballet to their school life within a short while! They’ll soon need to put their hand up to answer and ask questions, and take part in assemblies. You can give them a head start.

2. Ballet Improves Flexibility, Posture, and Coordination

For little ones who may spend a little too long watching screens, Ballet is perfect for improving their posture and coordination. They’ll learn to engage their muscles, stand up tall and coordinate their arms, head and legs.

3. Ballet Teaches Children to Take Direction

In their class, your child will be asked to follow instructions. The experience of dancing to a piece of music over and over helps them develop strong attention. They’ll also extend their attention span which will help in other areas of their life.

4. Ballet Encourages Determination 

In every single ballet class, your child will be challenged. As the dancer is faced with age appropriate and increasingly difficult skills, exercises, and combinations to perform, they will learn just how much difference hard work makes toward his or her ability to succeed.

5. Ballet is Fun!

At the end of the day, most little ones enjoy dancing to music. In their ballet class, young dancers have the opportunity to express themselves creatively, test their bodies’ potential, and strive toward a common goal.
