Dance students who continue training through the summer not only maintain their current level of technique; they keep moving forward in their classes, placing them at a sometimes significant advantage come September. The more advanced a dancer is, the greater dancing/not dancing in the summer will affect their progress in dance as a whole.
When it comes to skill retention, flexibility and strength, our bodies lose almost 2 months of conditioning for every month that it is not actively in class. This means that by the end of summer, students who do not take summer dance classes can potentially lose up to 6 months of training that they have to regain before they can move forward in their technique!
For our younger dance students, staying in dance throughout the summer provides continuity of routine while keeping them active. The repetition of skills aids in mastery of movements and concepts. Dance class also provides social opportunities and aids in social and emotional development.
Our summer class schedule has been designed to keep our students moving and growing, while introducing them to new genres and skills - we are looking to engage and excite dancers of all ages!
Summer classes start Monday, June 13th - don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to enhance your dancer's training and get ready for fall dance!
