Dance training develops academic and life skills more then you think. Below are some amazing facts. http://artsinaction.info/page/5/
Discipline, Focus, Commitment Taking a dance class requires discipline, making it to every class and controlling your body. Focusing on the teacher, yourself and what you are doing. The discipline of making and following through with choices. Academic students need to recognize that some things take time to develop and require a commitment of time, energy and sacrifice. The discipline of the dancer when transferred into the home, school and workplace gives them an advantage. http://melanieducharme.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/fun-facts-about-art/
Time Management, Skills Time management may be the most important quality necessary for success in life. Students who know how to plan ahead, organize, and balance their lives are the students who succeed. Children who add dance to their weekly activities, especially those who may take several classes each week, must learn to manage their time. They learn to balance, to prioritize, to multitask, to make choices and sacrifices. One should never stop learning and never set limits on yourself. Always build on your skill level.
Criticism, Passion Dance students learn early that criticism is not a bad word. True constructive criticism means helping someone find the best in themselves through feedback. Academic students who are able to receive and use criticism will gain more from others. Loving something that you do is important in keeping balance in your life.
Creativity, Self Investment Dance students begin to understand that dance is greater than they are. It is the ultimate unity of the music, the choreography, the technique and the soul of the dancer that creates the dance. Dancers learn to tap that creative energy within themselves and bring that creativity to all that they do. Dancers learn to throw themselves completely into whatever they do. They blend the physical, the mental, the emotional, and the spiritual into a greater whole. It gives what everyone wants, a sense of purpose.
