5 Reasons to Be Thankful for Dance
As dancers, we have some much love and respect for our craft. Dance gives us great gifts, and we are grateful for each of them.
Why We Are Thankful for Dance
It’s that time of the year again when we get to share what we’re grateful for. At Bella Diva Dance, we couldn’t be more thankful to have the opportunity to dance with all of you, and here’s why.
1) Dance Teaches Us to Love Our Differences
One of the most important things to be thankful for when it comes to dancing is that it shows us that it is essential to respect our bodies and the bodies of others. Dance teaches us to embrace what makes each of us different and to use it to make every move count. World dance, particularly, tells us about different cultures and how the beauty of each dance is in the details that make them unique.
2) Dance Keeps Our Brain in Check
Dancing has been proven to make us smarter. This beautiful and fun activity integrates several brain functions that exercise our cognitive processes, and this helps us increase our mental capacity.
3) Dance is Therapy
Dance is an emotional outlet. It provides an opportunity for us to express ourselves when words can convey the message. It’s a way for us to let it all out and release stress. Dance also boosts our creativity and even helps us improve our communication skills. It’s certainly more affordable than therapy and way more fun.
4) Dance Motivates Us to Grow
We’re thankful for dance because it makes us go after constant self-improvement. There’s always something else to learn, techniques we need to polish, details we need to master. It is so rewarding when we achieve our goals that it only makes us hungry for more. It reminds us that we never stop growing and that we shouldn’t settle.
5) Dance Gives Us Amazing Friendships
Becoming part of a community is one of the most beautiful things about dance, one we should definitely be thankful for. Dance classes open doors to new friendships with people that have similar goals than you and that are there to support you through the process. Your dance family becomes like a second family with whom you share a passion and incredible experiences.
Thank you for being part of this great family! We are grateful for each and every move we’ve been able to share with you and for the many more that will come. What are you thankful for?
At Bella Diva Dance, we believe it is important to spend quality time with our families. For this reason, the studio will be closed on Thanksgiving. Fuel up during the holiday weekend and come back strong on Monday, November 27th. Happy Thanksgiving!
