Fall has arrived! Have you had a pumpkin spice latte yet? Or visited the pumpkin patch? Maybe you are just enjoying the cooler weather and the excitement in the air as we approach the holiday season. The month of November is typically a month where we think and talk more about what we are thankful for. While thanksgiving and gratitude are something we should all work to display year-round, we want to take the opportunity this November to get our dance family talking about gratitude!
Starting next week stop by the front desk to grab a thankful card- write what you are thankful for and we will display them on the “Thankful Wall” at the studio. Help us fill up our thankful wall and all month long we can see HOW MUCH there is to be thankful for.
We wanted to get it started with a few reasons we are thankful for DANCE!
- Dance is fun
This is not just important for young children and teens- this is important for everyone! We all need joy every day and what better way to have fun than to move, shake and jump. Whether you are a trained dancer or not, dancing puts you in a good mood so put some music on and get moving!
- Dance keeps us strong and healthy
We love that dance is teaching our children how to live a healthy lifestyle, how to stay active and gives them an avenue to gain strength and flexibility. Whether your dancer takes ballet, tap, jazz, acro, contemporary or hip hop dance classes, they are regularly improving their overall health by doing so!
- Dance builds confidence
In dance class we are always setting goals and working to achieve those goals. When dancers learn new skills and then master those skills their confidence goes up! Dancers learn they can achieve so much through hard work. The performance aspect of dance is also a huge confidence builder. We see kids that are very shy, learn a dance routine and gain the confidence to go out on stage and perform in front of hundreds of people. How amazing is that!?
- Dance friends!!
Here are Red Door we often talk about our dance family. Dancers form very close friendships with their fellow classmates as they learn side by side, cheer each other on and learn to support each other. We work hard to create an environment that is a safe, nurturing and supportive environment for kids and their families. As a result, everyone that enters our studio- kids, parents, grandmas, grandpas, become part of our dance family. We are very proud of this dance family and know many of the relationships formed here will last a very long time. We are SO thankful for our dance friends!
So, please! Come tell us what you are thankful for!
