Work Hard Dance Harder
Kids nowadays work their little socks off to keep up with the demands of homework, exams and their ever-increasing social calendars. It would be easy to be fooled into thinking that an afterschool club would be one stress too many – and yet you couldn’t be further from the truth.
It has been scientifically proven that children who engage in extracurricular activities perform, on average, higher than those who don’t. When you start to look closer at the benefits of engaging in groups such as a Funky Moves Afterschool Dance Club, it is easy to see why these statistics ring true.
Even at the young age of four, kids start to develop lifelong skills inside and outside the school gates. In clubs, such as those that Funky Moves provide all over London, kids learn to explore and grow their creativity, confidence, social skills, self-esteem, emotional expression, physical stamina… the list goes on. The ability to successfully juggle several pursuits, take on extra responsibilities, lead and follow others and show commitment to an activity, all play a huge part in helping our kids prepare for life in the big working world as they grow up. If the school chooses to combine the academic years for the club, then kids get the added bonus of mixing with other children both older and younger than themselves, which can help so much in creating a happy, healthy and sociable community atmosphere at school.
Then there’s the obvious and wonderful benefit of kids just letting loose! Any of us who hit the gym (or even the chocolate) after a long day at work, know the importance of letting off steam, relieving any stress or burning up some unused energy from behind a desk. Our children are no different. A fun-packed dance class can be the perfect antidote to keep their brain’s stimulated for some homework whilst equally tiring them out for bed in the evening.
Parents benefit too. Most mums and dads would jump at the chance to be able to collect their kids at the school gates each day, yet more often than not, it proves a near impossible feat to get there in time with work, other children and parental duties providing plenty of obstacles. With Funky Moves keeping the kids occupied an extra hour, parents are given the best chance possible of seeing their kids’ smiling faces as they greet them at the end of the school day.
So how do you go about getting a fun, funky and creative club at your school? You just ask. Companies are jumping at the chance to entertain, amuse and energise your kids, so why not get in touch with them today!
