dance aids skill development

Our online Dance curriculum fosters life skills, intellectual skills, physical skills, essential and critical thinking skills (also known as higher order thinking). Besides this we also focus on SEL (social and emotional learning)

Pattern Recognition: The rhythmic nature of dance enhances the ability to recognize patterns.

Intelligence type as per the MI theory

Physical intelligence, also known as bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, is any intelligence derived through physical and practiced learning such as sports, dance, or craftsmanship. It may refer to the ability to use one's hands to create, to express oneself with one's body, a reliance on tactile mechanisms and movement, and accuracy in controlling body movement. An individual with high physical intelligence is someone who is adept at using their physical body to solve problems and express ideas and emotions. The ability to control the physical body and the mind-body connection is part of a much broader range of human potential as set out in Howard Gardener’s Theory of multiple intelligences
