The Many Benefits of Our YCP Programs
Improved Physical Health - Don't be fooled by all the fun! Dance is a highly physical activity. It doesn't just increase your child's physical strength, flexibility, and stamina - it also improves muscle tone, posture, balance, and coordination.
Educational Benefits - Learning doesn't stop when your child leaves the dance classroom. Dance lessons ignite creative thinking. Children learn discipline and focus. Students learn to manage time and the value of a strong work ethic. Over 90% of our Senior Dancers are also members of the National Honors Society!
Strong Social Skills - Children who dance can also improve their social and communication skills. Dance lessons teach children the value of teamwork, building friendships, trust and cooperation. Dance lessons have also been known to reduce anxiety and encourage relationships with peers.
Overall Confidence and Self-Esteem - As students master tricks, learn new skills and perform choreography their overall confidence improves. This boost in confidence is a direct link to greater self esteem and attitude.
"Our two girls have practically grown up at NEDA. As a parent, we see they are getting life lessons and not just dance lessons. They are becoming the good individuals we are proud of. We are NEDA."
