Why First Steps at SWDC?


We are confident your dancer’s first steps should be with Studio West Dance Center.

Exposure to dance & performance gives young children another way to express their emotions through storytelling plu reap the benefits of moving their bodies through a physical artform.

Dance classes for preschool age improve so many aspects of their physical, emotional and social well being! Here are just some of the benefit dance classes provide:


  1. Improves Physical Health: Dance is a physical activity and it’s one that focuses on the entire body so its great for TOTAL body fitness.
  2. Provides Opportunities For Socialization: Dance can help improve social and communication skills in class. And it can help reduce fears and teach children to be comfortable in front of a crowd.
  3. Room for Self Expression: The emphasis on self-expression in dance separates it from other forms of physical activity. Dance gives children the freedom to simply be themselves and be proud of that.
  4. Provides Education & Discipline: Children practice their memorization skills while learning their choreography. And dance is the perfect mixture of fun & discipline. These skills spill over into all aspects of their learning.
  5. Can Improve Self Esteem: As children learn more about dance and adjust to movement, they will start to gain a better sense of their bodies that will allow them to feel more comfortable in their own skin. The more comfortable a child feels the easier it will be for them to develop and maintain confidence.
