Why Dancing on Stage Matters
The big stage can feel like home for some people. The lights, all eyes on you; it’s a one of a kind feeling. Performing in front of an audience is a privilege. If you leave it all out there, the audience is bound to witness a great show, but what’s in it for you?
Benefits of Performing
There are tons of benefits that come from performing on stage.
Being yourself and feeling relaxed in front of a crowd is a skill that has to be worked for. The more we do it, the easier it gets. This boosts your confidence while developing poise and helping you learn to overcome anxiety.
Improves public speaking and self-presentation skills
These skills help us in leading meetings more efficiently or being more confident when presenting to a large group of people. For children, this can be especially beneficial, as performing has a lot to do with social interaction and cooperation. Children can learn to share their passion with others.
“The idea of making a presentation in public is the No. 1 fear reported by people in the U.S.” – Paul L. Witt, PhD
A Way of Self-Expression
Art, in general, promotes self-expression. It helps makes sense of emotions and boost our creativity. Dancers find a way to express themselves through body movement and musicality. It’s a physical effort with a spiritual connection.
Watching others perform is a motivational factor that can inspire us to try new things and work harder at constantly improving ourselves. Sharing the stage with others is a great opportunity for growth.
Promote Interpersonal Skills
Performing allows you to empathize with others and develop compassion. This is true for children also. In group settings, it can become more about sharing a performance goal than going after your own glory.
Perseverance and Problem Solving
During a live show, you never know what can happen. Performing arts develop creative thinking and reasoning, as well as teamwork, concentration, and motivation.
