We have lots to say about the importance of what we do...
Needless to say, each of those depends on the other as well. One amazing things we sometimes see in the dance studio is cognitive delays manifested in a child's physical capabilities and vice versa. Practicing those motor skills and hitting the proper milestones in early childhood are crucial to children's skills down the road.
In Little Beats classes, we are working sensory and motor development through music and dance but in a way that also helps our children experience language and social stimulation fostering secure attachments with their caregivers. The stimulation of class gives our little dancers confidence to be curiuos, take risks, and continue aquiring new skills. Talk about efficiency!?
So what's the bottom line?
Keep in mind the progression track of a growing brain. Notice where your child is in his/her development and what skills or milestones seem to come easier than others. Be sure to provide various experiences (especially those things that your child might be more challenged by) to round out your child's learning.
