Why Is Dance So Important?

Lil Top Rockers - Dance Classes

Dance is much more than just learning a routine and from a young age, it is an important activity for children to be immersed in. Not only are there many benefits of dance for children but this is part of a lifestyle and culture that anyone can get involved in.

Lil Beatz offer street dance classes for children aged between 2-6 years old. Our classes are the perfect opportunity for young children to stay active and enjoy dance!

Self Expression

Dance is perhaps the best method of self-expression. Whilst every dance style has its own unique take, street dance allows every child to be self-expressive and completely improvise in many situations. There are many different types of street dance, such as breakdancing, allowing all children to find a dance style they love and create their own moves and routines.

Dance is also another form of art, which appeals to many different people, whether you are watching dance or getting involved in it yourself. Street dance can be one of the more positive dance styles, with an explosive and energetic style to make it very enjoyable for all children getting involved. Although not everyone will love dance, it is important to give children this opportunity of self-expression, allowing them to use their own imagination.

Community & Culture

Dance comes from many different cultures, depending on the dance style that you want to join in with. Not only does this give children a good education into different cultures and where dances originated from, it will bring you into a community who share the same passion for dance and wanting to learn different dance routines.

Being part of a community from a young age can inspire a lot of confidence into children, helping them making friends and learning other people’s backgrounds, with the shared interest and hobby of loving dance. With age groups from 2-6, our dance classes can help children make friends before nursery and school, improving their confidence with interaction from other kids.

Entertainment

In a world where everyone seems glued to their phones and TV screens, dance provides a nice break and a different source of entertainment. Whether you are a parent who loves watching their child dance or the child learning routines and showcasing your dancing skills, it provides entertainment for all and variation from scrolling on Facebook or watching YouTube videos.

Every child should have a hobby and dance is one of the best to be involved in. Entertainment doesn’t just come from dance either. Being involved with other children will help all kids make friends so they are always having fun and enjoying their street dance classes.

Exercise & Staying Active

Problems with obesity and diabetes can start from a young age, demonstrating why it is so important for children to exercise and stay active. Although there are several different ways of doing this, dance is effective to help all children stay fit.

This will set you up for later life and give you the best opportunity to maintain fitness and avoid problems with your heart, obesity, diabetes and other issues that could occur. Street dance is a very active dance style and will only improve fitness. By regularly dancing, you can ease any worries and keep your body in great condition from a young age.

Learning Street Dance Styles

Young Street Dance

There is a huge range of street dance styles and finding your strengths can always develop your overall performance. Street dance is the perfect choice to be creative with your dancing, with different styles constantly being created!

Lil Beatz offer the perfect platform for all young dancers to develop their dancing skills and learn street dance styles.

Breakdancing

Breakdancing is possibly the most famous street dance style, originating in the 1970’s of New York City. Whether you are head spinning on the floor or performing flips, this is all part of the breakdance style. Breakdancing had a big influence after featuring in the film Flashdance in 1983. Since then, breakdancing has only grown bigger and better.

Floating

This street dance style isn’t exactly how its described as it may not teach you how to actually float. Floating aims to create a smooth and contained movement. Typically using the feet, this creates the illusion of someone floating across the ground. Whilst this dance style creates a particular dance move, it can be used throughout street dance. The three basic moves of floating are:

  • Gliding
  • Sliding
  • The Float

Each move creates the impression you are floating across the ground. Whilst this is a tricky skill to master, it can create one of the best dance moves.

Krumping

Krumping is one of the newest street dance styles, showing that new dance styles are always being created. It contains a lot of jabs, arm swings, chest pops and stomps and is a freestyle dance move that works flawlessly with breakdancing, hip-hop and b-boying. Los Angeles is one of many places where krumping is becoming a popular style. Krumping was originally created in the early 2000’s but has since evolved into an expressive and energetic dance style.

Turfing

Based on a method of storytelling, turfing is very improvisational and is a free-form dance style, with dance moves coming from a range of different traditions. Containing moves such as tutting, flexing and waving, turfing can create dance moves like no other, being extremely free-flowing, based on your own creativity!

Locking & Popping

Locking and popping are two different street dance styles, however, used together they create the perfect combination. Popping is more of an explosion of your body parts, which is why this combination is so good, combining a mix of an explosion and quick contraction. Locking is used to contract and tighten your body parts into a certain position.  You can always identify locking by distinctive stops as body parts move into different positions. This is where a fast movement is stopped, unlike popping. These two street dance styles create a fantastic motion in dance performances.

Robot

The robot is similar dance style to locking and popping, however, focuses on using only robotic dance moves. There have been many examples of how not to do the robot! However, it can be a good dance move to use when in contrast to a smooth flow of music, whether you are using stiff arms or head movements.

Jerkin’

Jerkin’ is another more recent hip-hop trend that has made its way into the street dance styles. Involving twitchy dance moves, jerkin’ is an unconventional dance move that involves in and out leg stretching.

Lil Beatz always want to incorporate a range of street dance styles into all dance performances. Our dance classes offer the perfect opportunity for children aged 2-6. No matter what current ability you have, we can develop your street dance skills and teach a range of styles. Join our classes today and get in touch with Lil Beatz.

Is Street Dance The Most Popular Style?

With a huge selection of dance styles, is street dance the most popular choice for young children? It has many benefits for young children and stands out among other, less exciting dance styles.

Lil Beatz, of course, think that street dance is the best and only option for young children! With this style being a fantastic hobby to get involved in, we look at why it is so popular.

Street Dance Growth

From George Sampson to Diversity winning Britain’s Got Talent and with films such as “Step Up” and “StreetDance”, street dance has grown in the public eye. Influencing children all over the world, it has grown in popularity over the last decade. Being an energetic and expressive dance style, it is very different to other dance styles that young children take part in.

With choreography being very mixed and improvised, it creates a fantastic effect that isn’t achieved with other dancers. This gives all young children the chance to be creative themselves, whilst taking part in an exciting and enjoyable dance style.

Popular Dance Styles

There are a number of popular dance styles and whilst they are great hobbies for children, they do not offer the same creativity and intense exercise that street dance does. Some of the most popular dance styles include:

  • Ballet
  • Contemporary
  • Jazz
  • Street
  • Tap

Street dance can help all young children stay fit and strengthen their muscles and bones from a young age. Whilst this may not seem like a big issue, it is important for young children to regularly exercise. This gives you a fantastic opportunity  and allows children to be involved more than other dance styles. With there being a range of dance types, all ages can find their strengths. An example of the dance types that could be involved include:

  • Animation
  • Breakdancing
  • Floating
  • Jerking
  • Krumping
  • Locking & Popping

With many children still choosing to learn dances such as tap and ballet, we simply cannot understand it! Street offers a variety of movements and helps all children develop a selection of dance skills. There is always a dance style that you can learn and enjoy, with street dance providing the perfect platform from a young age.
