Dance is an excellent activity for children’s free time for many good reasons:
> helps to carry out regular and correct physical activity ;
> favors a harmonious development of the body, teaches to love it and to treat it well ;
> it is an educational tool, because there is a strong component of discipline ;
> it is a form of personal and artistic expression and favors the emotional development of the child;
> helps to create goals and to commit to achieving and exceeding them.
However, this is only true if you choose a qualified dance school. In fact, dance, like all structured physical activities, if done badly and if the structure is not adequate, could be harmful to the well-being of the body.

Criteria for choosing a good dance school
Most parents who decide to enroll their daughter or (more rarely, unfortunately) their son in a dance class do not have the technical skills to evaluate the school, so how do you do it? We must rely on some common sense criteria that can help a lot:
> Observe the structure, which must be adequate. For example, it is very important that the floor is made of wood or linoleum and that it is suitable for the type of business. In addition, there should be sufficient mirrors and bars , adequate changing rooms, heating and air conditioning systems, a small waiting room for parents. The hall or, better still, the rooms where the lessons take place must be sufficiently spacious.
> Talk to the teacher in charge of the school and find out what qualifications they have. Are you a qualified teacher? What titles do you own? How much experience do you have? Also inquire about other teachers who collaborate with the structure; a school that makes use of specialized external collaborators certainly has an extra gear.
> Ask if it is possible to take a trial lesson and evaluate the reaction of the girl / boy. Make sure there are courses appropriate for the age of the boy or girl you wish to enroll. Also consider that the courses should not be too crowded.
> Go and attend the year-end essay. From the year-end essay of a dance school you can understand many things: the attention to detail, for example, denotes a certain organization and a lot of seriousness, as well as an atmosphere of harmony and harmony is certainly a very valid indicator of a school. that could favor the psycho-physical well-being of your child.
