The Magic Formula to Developing Confidence in Kids

The Magic Formula to Developing Confidence in Kids

THE KEY TO CONFIDENCE, IS FINDING A TRIBE THAT FOSTERS A CULTURE OF CARE AND SUPPORT, RATHER THAN HARSH COMPETITION AND COMPARISONS

When selecting an activity for kids who struggle with confidence, it’s important to ensure that the environment is creative and nurturing, helping them to feel supported as they step out of their comfort zone to try something new. Being in a ‘bubble of positivity’ will evoke feelings of trust and a sense of achievement as they take small steps towards independence. In addition to this, kids who are encouraged to celebrate individuality in others sends a message to the ‘tribe’ that it’s ok to be different. The key to confidence is helping kids to identify their own set of strengths, and celebrating them!

So where does Dance come in? Dance is well known and scientifically proven to release good endorphins, which will naturally make your child happier! In addition to keeping your child’s body and mind active, participating in dance classes will allow your child to express themselves creatively, while also thriving with friends in class. Where the magic happens is when parents see this newfound confidence in areas of life outside the dance studio! Whether it be dance, soccer or swimming, when you find the right environment for your child, you’ve found more than just a sporting activity, you’ve found a family and friends for life!
