Ballroom Dance Classes for Kids begins this September!

kids classes-001For many generations, cotillions were the way that youth and adults (but mostly youths) learned to socialize through dance.

Your Fred Astaire Dance Studio of St. Charles won’t be quite so formal, but we are pleased to announce the start of our Kids Ballroom Classes beginning in September. We welcome kids from ages 5-17. What a fabulous way to get your offspring involved in a healthy activity that offers not only social interaction but exercise as well.

Join us for “parent orientation” at our St. Charles dance studio on August 15th, at 6:30 p.m., for all class schedules, pricing, detailed information and to sign up your future dancer. Our skilled professionals are highly knowledgeable in teaching kids of all ages in all styles of ballroom dancing. No experience or partner necessary.

Give your child the gift of improved self-confidence and social skills. What a great chance for pre-teens, who can be a little shy around the opposite sex, to learn to dance in a calming, non-threatening, conducive environment.

Dancing is a highly physical activity, and kids who take dance lessons regularly should expect to see a significant improvement in their overall physical health. It is beneficial for strength, stamina, flexibility, coordination and balance. Dancing is an aerobic form of exercise and for overweight children it may help them to lose weight while strengthening their self-confidence. Dance is a wonderful means of self-expression as well.
