Lessons for Children

One of DonnaMarie's favorite activities is teaching her young students. With the popularity of the new dance shows on television, ballroom dancing has really taken off for children. It's not unusual for young girls and boys to be big fans of the professional dancers.

On a purely physical level, dancing provides the benefits of exercise: improved health, well-being, coordination, and muscle tone. On an emotional level, it helps people feel more joyful and confident, and allows them to explore such issues as anger, frustration, and loss that may be too difficult to explore verbally. On a mental level, dancing seeks to enhance cognitive learning.

Dancing has a broad range of health benefits. It has been demonstrated to be clinically effective at improving body image, self-esteem, attentiveness, and communication skills. It can also reduce stress, fears and anxieties, as well as lessen feelings of isolation, body tension, chronic pain, and depression.
