Which Dance Form is Best for Kids?

Published on 21st September 2020 by Tessa Robinson

Looking for children’s dance classes? Here at Club Hub, our directory is filled with thousands of dance classes for kids, so we have spoken to a few providers to tell us a bit more which dance form is best for kids to learn.

Ellen Elphick – Founder of Ellen Elphick Dance Academy

Which Dance Form is Best for Kids?I believe that ballet is the best dance form for kids.  It is the founding technique to most, if not all dance styles and will allow a child to gain control, balance, coordination and great posture.  Ballet is a very disciplined dance form and children respond very well to this and fall in love with Ballet.  Ballet is a flowing, imaginative and structured dance form that allows a child to express themselves through movement, particularly when they are more advanced. Here at EEDA we believe ballet is the fundamental technique to all other dance styles and therefore, the most important dance form to learn.

Which Dance form is best for kids?

Dance Classes for KidsResearch shows that dancing improves mental health as it boosts overall happiness, therefore I believe that any style of dancing will be beneficial to a child. I would advise to start as young as possible to make it a good habit and part of their routine. Taking part in a dance class like Ballet, Contemporary or Jazz will help them to grow healthy by having a good understanding of how their body functions, it will improve their posture, muscle tone, it will strengthen their bones, it will also increase creativity and it’s fun!

Which Dance Form is Best for Kids?At Dance4U we offer a range of different dance styles and aim to meet the wants and need of each individual, therefore we believe therapeutic dance & movement is the best dance form for children and here’s why;

What is Therapeutic Dance?

Dance Therapy recognises body movement as an implicit and expressive instrument of communication and expression, it’s a creative way of using dance and movement to help the individual deal with emotional, social, physical and psychological issues.

Who Does it Benefit?

Anyone! In particular dance therapy may assist development of self-esteem and confidence, assist in building health perceptions of body image, improvement of communication skills verbally or non verbally.

Dance4U uses a Humanistic Approach.

The Humanistic Approach suggests that humans should be viewed holistically, a persons behaviour is influenced by their environment. Individuals are conscious of past and present, they have the right to make informed decisions concerning self.


Dance4u use a range of modalities within sessions such as, music, art, fancy dress, roleplay, drama, toys and lights and much more… Every individual is special and not every group of people enjoy the same things, Dance4u collaborates with others in order to meet the needs of the clients.

Does it work?

Based on the belief that a persons body movement reflects their pattern of thinking and feeling, dance therapy allows for expression of whole self. The dance therapist will observe and asses the clients movements during session, within an individual or group setting. Dance Therapy works well for those who struggle to communicate verbally.
