WHY DANCE?


Dancing makes you smarter!


"Dancing increases cognitive acuity at all ages...and dancing integrates several brain functions at once - kinesthetic, rational, musical and emotional - further increasing neural connectivity." *


Dancing makes you stronger! 


Dancers are athletes, as well as artists, and dancing  increases flexibility, strength, coordination and helps to keep joints and muscles healthy.


Dancing makes you . . . you! 


Dance is a creative outlet that provides students a structured environment to express their thoughts, feelings and values.


* New England Journal of Medicine
