“Dance education can be so much more than just teaching children how to get from one place to another with a certain step. While taking a dance class, children not only learn to be proficient dancers and possibly professional, they also become more skillful socially (sharing), intellectually (problem solving) emotionally (self-confidence) and physically (posture, coordination, flexibility, strength).” – Michael Barriskill
