As the great American dancer and choreographer Martha Graham said, “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” Most kids love to dance around while watching their favorite TV show or listening to their favorite tunes. I don’t know many parents that can stop tapping their feet to the music on Yo Gabba Gabba or Wow Wow Wubbzy. It is contagious and even though moms and dads everywhere wish that they could get the catchy melodies out of their heads, there they are dancing along in the old noggin. That excitement that builds up within your child the moment they hear music that they love is special. It is so special that it can get even the two wobbliest feet to stand and bust a move. Learning how to express themselves and appreciate music through dancing is an amazing gift that you can give to your little girl (or boy). The art of dance has the ability to build character, self-esteem and discipline. Graham had an outstanding understanding of dance and how it can transform.
Speaking of an outstanding understanding of dance, Chester Valley Dance Academy is a great place for dance education in Chester County. They offer such a wide array of various dance classes beginning with mommy and me sessions for the youngest dance enthusiast. They have classes available for pre-school age kiddos designed to enhance their student’s creative ability, attention span, physical mobility and musical comprehension.

Located right off of rt. 100 on South Village Avenue in Exton the dance academy’s mission is to provide quality dance education by promoting the art of dance through the positive benefits of physical fitness, nurturing talent, self-esteem, academic responsibilities, and proper social values. Classes are offered to all ages and encompass all ability levels. Best part for moms is that their studio set up is very convenient. Moms of young dancers can wait the 45 minutes out in a large waiting area that has two one-way mirrors, (where you can see your baby but they can’t see you) and enjoy watching the lesson.
Most youngsters love getting started in the preschool classes. At first it is a fun activity but then little by little you can see the enjoyment that they are gaining from the experience. Soon they are learning technique and perhaps most importantly some self-confidence. If you are a Chesco mom and are looking for a dance school for your child to begin, contact Chester Valley Dance Academy. If you have a little twirler, rocker or princess you will be giving them a gift: the rhythm of their life!
