At this time every year, we start wondering what to get our kids for Christmas. TV and catalogs are filled with plastic, light up toys, some with screens, that promise to dazzle and entertain them. But the toys break, batteries die, and doctors are encouraging less screen time for kids.

But what if you could get a child in your life something they want, and need, that lasts all year, and teaches invaluable life lessons, all while they have fun, enjoying physical activity and an art?! Dance is truly unique in its place as a sport AND an art, a fun activity AND a chance to learn life skills. In the next weeks I’ll be detailing some of the major benefits of enrolling your child in dance. Although, no matter how much I write, I could never exhaust the entire list of advantages that dance offers!
