What They’ll Learn: Dance is a fun activity for kids that exercises both the body and mind. In addition to increasing fitness levels, dance classes for kids also help with better posture, flexibility, creativity and even cultural understanding.
Ages: 3 & up
Time Commitment: 1-2 hours per week

When to Start: Some studios start enrolling toddlers in dance class as early as 3 years old; any younger than that and kids lack the attention span and strong bones needed for basic dance lessons. A general rule of thumb might be to consider signing up when your child expresses interest in taking dance class.
