Why summer dance?


Why Summer dance?  I am so glad you asked! Haha!

As parents, we should be instilling active and healthy habits in our children at an early age.  If you already have them in dance class (or any other sport) you're already ahead of the game! Consistent physical activity can help children build strong muscles and bones, promote healthy growth and improve balance!  Summer is a good time to have that nice balance between activity and rest!  Let's face it, we all need a little rest when summer hits.  Family is one of our core values at FCAD, so it's a no brainer for us...family first! You should be enjoying some extra time with your family.  Sleep in, have a picnic, vacation, grab a few extra snuggles...whatever brings you joy!  But, if your kids are anything like mine, they will get restless about 2 or 3 weeks in on that summer break.  That's your clue that it's time to get them active and involved in something. So, what can summer dance offer you?

1.) An active and fun activity
Dance is a great way to stay active and have fun at the same time.  Even the youngest dancer has developed the muscle memory of practicing every week.  Keep those muscles strong by enrolling them in a fun summer class or camp.  All of our summer classes and camps have been designed and scheduled to be short classes with a short comittment.  Their bodies won't loose any muscle memory over the summer and they will have fun at the same time!  Moms, it gives you a chance to fellowship with other moms while your kids are in class!  Who doesn't love a little mom time, especially on those long summer days?

2.) Try a new class
Summer is a great time to try dance for the first time OR to try a style of dance that your child has been asking about!  Summer Mermaid Tumbling is a great class that kids will love this summer!  It's new and exciting!  Or, how about our Science Camp?  Academics is important and those brains need to be stretched even in the summer months!

3.) Make new friends
We tend to get many new students during the summer months!  This is an awesome time for kids to meet new friends and for moms to make new mom friends! My son loves baseball!  Every spring and fall, I look forward to hearing him talk about his new friends he's made on his team and I look forward to chatting with some new moms in the dug out! You know what they say...Dance friends make the best friends!

Summer dance is great for every dancer no matter their age or skill level!  We have something for everyone at FCAD this summer!  I invite you to take a look at our summer classes if you haven't already!  It's going to be a fun summer!  Keep those babies active!
