How Dance Benefits a Child

Since the time, I was a Child, the graceful dance movements on the television made me fall in love with Dance. This made me imitate great dancers, whose performances I watched very often. Once I started my journey, there was no looking back. I personally benefit a lot, due to my passion towards Kuchipudi. Kuchipudi is one of the major Indian classical dances, derived its name from village Kuchelapuram, Andhra Pradesh. Also, it represents the beauty and power of culture, a prayer and meditation. Classical Dance is not only a combination of body and hand movements, it helps to identify the inner strength and passion. It is something which we could talk and feel forever. We use gestures in order to communicate feelings. So, for a human being to control his/her emotions, one of the aspect is Art. In addition, Classical dance is the highest forms of art.

Dancing benefits a child to a large extent. It plays a key role in soothing and relaxing the minds of stressed children and at same time stimulate their concentration. Children gains physical fitness, self-belief, self-confidence and control over body. A child, while learning calculates and plans his/her thinking ahead to perform the next dance step, which improves the concentration levels. The most important factors in child’s life are a discipline and patience which can be acquired by learning Dance.

To conclude, Indian classical dance is based on Mythology, it teaches children the value of cultural heritage of India. The tradition says, dance is originated from Gods and made by people. If we analyze, both the traditions scientifically, we can trace the origin of dance.
