About Diabetes and Obesity

Obese children are four times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. This shows that keeping fit from a young age is extremely important, even if it only seems like a small issue. Whilst you can be diagnosed with diabetes at any age, being obese as a child could mean this occurs before you are 25.

Diabetes is a serious and lifelong condition where your blood glucose levels are too high. You should always try to find a hobby for your children for exercise and enjoyment to keep them fit. By doing this, diabetes is much less likely to occur. There are several causes in addition to obesity, such as a poor diet and taking in too much sugar. This then means your sugar and glucose levels have to be controlled if you are diagnosed.

Street and hip hop dance styles are two of the best options to lose weight and prevent diabetes being caused by obesity. Whether this is just used to prevent diabetes and obesity or you would like to develop your dance skills, it is a fun option for all young children.

Is Dance The Solution?

Whilst there are many types of exercise, street dance can be the ultimate solution to obesity at a young age. Dance is one of the most personalised and expressive forms of exercise, allowing you to stay fit whilst being part of a fantastic community at Lil Beatz.

Even if you are not suffering from obesity, street dance will help children of all ages stay fit and prevent obesity. With our classes ranging from ages 2-6, there is an opportunity for all children to get involved in a fantastic and healthy hobby. With many different exercises, such as running and other sports, why is dance the solution? Dance targets a range of areas, including:

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Core
  • Glutes
  • Legs

From a young age, this strengthens every area of your body to avoid diabetes and obesity. As street dance requires flexibility and offers an upbeat tempo, this is better for your heart. Dance can also be very high intensity depending on the style, allowing you to burn calories and keep fit!

Why Is Dancing So Good For Your Health?

Dancing Is Fun

Dancing is supposed to be fun and enjoyable, but it is also very beneficial for all kids! Dancing is a great option for a hobby and even better to help your health. Read our blog and find out why.

Lil Beatz have dance classes for several age groups and can help you with both your health and hobbies. Dancing will always offer a number of benefits no matter how old you are.

Improving Confidence & Self-Esteem

For older groups, confidence can often be a big issue, especially if you haven’t danced before. Dancing can be challenging but if you have a real passion to do well, your confidence will begin to reflect this. The longer you are dancing, the better you will get and this can help to improve your confidence and self-esteem when dancing. At Lil Beatz, we always aim to develop the talent of all our students, build up your confidence and your skills when dancing.

Learning new hobbies will always help young children build confidence and dancing is one of the best options to achieve this.

Physical Health

Staying healthy and taking part in physical activity as a child is vital. Whether you decide to play football, go swimming or dance, physical activity has massive benefits. Not only will physical activity improve you physically, but it can also benefit young children mentally. According to Pro Dance Centre, regular dance leads to improved flexibility, range of motion, strength and stamina. Dance can also help you lose weight which leads to great confidence and mental development, making dance the perfect option for your child’s health.

Social Development

Developing relationships whilst young is always great for children. Whether you are shy, loud or adventurous, dance can help girls and boys develop great relationships from an early age. Finding a hobby that you love can lead to social improvements, having interests in common with the people around them. Not only can dance lead to more socialisation for your kids, but this can help them improve their performance and really enjoy the dances they learn.
