How Dance is Shaping Social-Emotional Growth

You hear a lot these days about social-emotional development in children, especially how important it is for building empathy and meaningful relationships.

A dancer’s learning…

Stretching For Your (Mental) Health

Stretching For Your (Mental) Health

Stretching For Your (Mental) Health Dancers are known for their sometimes circus-like contortions, whether it’s pulling a leg to their forehead or bending their back in a 110° arabesque. Along with technique class and strengthening exercises, stretching is likely one of the largest parts of a dancer’s daily regimen. But what about “stretching” something other than your hamstrings? Can mental and emotional flexibility be a benefit to dancers’ overall health?  Just like asking your muscles to accept a new position—and pushing through the…

Celebrating Each Other’s Success

Celebrating Each Other’s Success
