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.

Street Dancer

Becoming an amazing street dancer won’t happen overnight. It takes practice and perfection to make sure your dance moves are up there with the best. With our tips and help at street dance classes, you can always improve your dancing skills.

Watching Dance Videos

One of the best ways to improve your current skills as a street dancer is by watching other dance videos. Dance videos are great to show you the best dancers from around the world, as well as teaching you how to do specific street dance moves.

Whether dance videos are old or new, they could give you the inspiration to create your own moves and routines. As street dance is varied and there are a range of dance styles, dance videos and tutorials can help you with all aspects of your street dancing, even from a young age.

Stretching & Improving Posture

Even when you’re young, stretching and having a good posture will always help with your street dancing. By regularly stretching, you keep your body fresh and make sure you are ready to complete flexible dance moves and many street dance styles!

With a good posture, this will also help when it comes to perfecting certain dance moves. Whilst our dance routines are not too complex for younger ages, you should stay active so your body is ready for all activities.

Enjoy Yourself

If you are not enjoying your street dance classes, this makes it very difficult to improve your dance skills. To become the best possible street dancer you can, you must always enjoy yourself whilst practising street dance at home or coming to our street dance lessons.

From a young age, finding the perfect hobby is essential. It is never too late to try something new and street dance could just be the suitable solution. If your heart is not fully committed to street dance, it will be difficult to enjoy and harder to improve.

Keep Practicing

When our street dance classes end, your street dancing should continue. Just because you are not in one of our classes does not mean you can’t practice street dance and improve your skills. Becoming an amazing street dancer means practising street dance wherever you can!

The more you practice, the better you will get. Whether this is individual moves, practising a full routine or learning new dance moves and styles online, this will all contribute to becoming the best possible street dancer.

Performing

Perhaps most importantly, becoming a great street dancer means performing. From a young age, performing will give you a massive confidence boost and help build your poise on a bigger stage. Performing can be nerve-wracking at any age but the best way to overcome this fear is to continue performing, doing something you enjoy.

With our street dance classes, we create a number of routines with all different age groups.  This allows us to help all young children begin performing at a young age. As your confidence continues to build, this sets you up perfectly for the future both in and out of dance.

Miss Vicci’s Lil Tips For Starting Street Dance

Miss Vicci Lil Beatz Street Dance

The time has come when you and your Lil one are coming along to your first ever Lil Beatz dance class! There will be a lot of excitement for both you and your Lil one, as some might not know what to expect. I have taught dance for nearly 15 years and danced since I was 2 (yikes… time flies). I have a lot of experience in dealing with children and parents.

So, I have devised some Lil tips to help you along your way for your first street dance class at Lil Beatz.

Before Your Street Dance Class

Talk about your dance class beforehand to your Lil one to get them buzzing and excited for their first dance class. Find out your teachers name and let your child know who they will be meeting on the day. No doubt your kids will love dancing at home so here at Lil Beatz we have our very own animations online for your Lil ones to dance and sing along to. Be prepared for “Runna Rabbit” to get stuck in your head!

No one wants to dance when you’ve had a little snooze so making sure your child is up and raring to go will help them concentrate more and have fun in class. If your child is coming to a play area and you’re struggling to get them into class after they have had a play, try getting them to do their dance class first and then reward them with their play time after.

A lot of children have so much fun playing before their dance class that the last thing they want to do is leave the play area. So get them there kitted up in the correct dancewear, giving your self time for that quick toilet run before the class starts. Being late can make the child’s first lesson a little daunting as they would have walked into what will feel like a crazy house with music and dance moves throwing everywhere. Getting into your class early gives them chance to meet their teacher and familiarise with the studio and other children attending their class.

Expect & Encourage

Expect the unexpected! That’s one thing I have learnt a lot when working with children. Your child might be full of energy at home but at their first Lil Beatz class, they might become shy and clingy. This is normal for them to feel a little anxious as it’s all new with their surroundings and new faces. So your welcome to stay by their side to help encourage them and reassure them that they will be fine.

In our ages 2-3 Lil Boppers class, the adults play a big part as you have got to get them dancing shoes on too! When your child sees your having fun and busting some moves… that energy will rub off! We welcome you old school hip-hoppers to join us!

If we do get tears it’s a good idea to let them sit and watch the class or take them out for a little breather then come back in to join the fun.

Those who attend the older classes age 4+ we want you the adults to go and grab that well-deserved coffee break. So, if you have to come in to support your child that’s great… some children can just strut right in and others may need a little more time. Simply staying with them while they settle for the first 5 minutes then try and make your great escape! If your child catches you just say your just nipping to the toilet / for a coffee and you will see them at the end of class.

This gives them time to focus on their teachers. As time goes on, their confidence will grow and they will be strutting their stuff through that door, waving you goodbye with a smile on their face!

Attendance

Making Lil Beatz class a structured routine is crucial for Lil ones as they like familiarity. It calms them down and reassures them. So don’t be put off if in the first few classes they don’t join in or you have tears. It’s all part of the learning curve. The main priority is that you stick to it. I have seen countless times where children have grown in confidence because of them continuing to come along. This is why at Lil Beatz we offer the 3 weeks trial as it’s so important to us as teachers and for you and your child to experience the start of being part of our Lil Beatz Crew.

Thank You!

Being a teacher is the most rewarding job… it really is! Lil Beatz to me is an exciting and different insight into the new generation of toddler dance classes. We are growing day by day and don’t get me wrong, we have a long way to go but having the support from you, the parents and carers, makes it all worthwhile. We only want to deliver the best quality in our sessions because you all deserve it! Lil Beatz classes are designed to get children fit and healthy whilst having fun to the coolest music & specialised syllabus designed by professionals who all have a love and passion for street dance and hip hop.

Who said toddler dance classes couldn’t be cool! We ditch the cheesy music and mix it up with urban vibes that are guaranteed to get you busting your moves! We won’t get your child spinning on their head (even though that would be pretty cool) but we will help them with basic street and breakdancing skills and learning rhythms. Plus, the socialising side of things it’s great to see parents and children making new friends.

It’s so important we teach them not only about dance but about good manners and how we would like them to behave in and out of class. Pleases & thank yous don’t go amiss and nor does a good ole high five! It’s all about the praise and letting your child know they did such a good job. I am always so proud when I give my stickers out at the end and watch how our Lil superstars do their swagger walks and cool poses on their own. So Thank you for reading my Lil Blog and thank you for continuing to support us at Lil Beatz.

We have some exciting times coming in 2019 and can’t wait for you to join us!

Love, Miss Vicci xx
