There are many mothers who choose to enroll their children into dance class because they think that it is cute. But how can you tell if it is something that your child will really enjoy? Should you just sign up your toddler to give them experience in a classroom setting?
Well as you know there is an old saying that some people were born to be dancers. If your child is between the ages of two and four then you should be able to see if they have a natural love for dance. This would be very easy to notice since they would always be dancing around the house.
But what if your child does not show any particular love for dance and you just want to give them some classroom exposure. Well this can actually be a good thing to get them involved in some type of extracurricular activity. Not only would it be healthy for them, but they will learn to work well in a group environment. The key to making this activity fun for your child is to find the right class for them. Some kids like tap, or maybe your little girl wants to give ballet a try.
The best thing to do in this situation is to visit your local dance school that offers classes for children of this size. Then along with your child you can sit and observe how the class is run and see if it is something that your child wants to try. Never force them to do something that they do not have any interest in doing. Even if you think that they will eventually like it at a later time.
When dealing with toddlers their interest tend to change on an almost weekly basis, so it would e a good idea to find a teacher who is willing to be flexible not all dance instructors are willing to do this. What this means is that they will let your child try different classes thought the course of a few months until they find the one class they really like.
Of course you will have to pay for these classes, but in the end it would be well worth the effort to find a dance class that your child really likes. The bottom line is that it is not about your, but more about your child and what they want. So try your best not to make your child live out your childhood dreams.
