Dancing is a cultural phenomenon
Dancing has many physical, social and psychological benefits
People from all ages and cultures dance! It’s just a force of nature and can’t be prevented. It’s super important to let kids dance as benefits come in physical, social and psychological form including increased heart health, muscular strength and others. Kids can also destress as dancing is about creating a new rhythm and rediscovering oneself, according to Hindu culture. Dancing also creates great harmony between the body and mind.
Dancing is an expressive art as it can tell stories and entertain. “Dance is not just about shaking the body; it relaxes the body and mind and promotes cohesiveness among dancers,” says Kevin Babb, founder and director of Dance Kenya Studios and executive director of Bethezer Dance.
