Dance Academy USA is excited to announce its annual dance recital which will be held June 15 & 16 at The Center for the Performing Arts in San Jose, CA; this recital serves as an opportunity for DAU students to showcase their talent and skills they learned throughout the year. In order to participate in DAU's Recital 2013, students must register for dance classes no later than February 28, 2013.
With the increased spotlight dance has received in pop culture, participation in the sport has continued to soar in the United States. Participation in dance has many health benefits for children. Dance Academy USA (DAU) discusses some of these benefits and the importance of dance instruction in their most recent blog post, "Spirit, Body, Mind". According to the post, "Dance teaches children how to learn. A parent choosing dance as an activity for their child is a parent wanting to give their child a strong foundation in learning, a strong mind." says Jenni Tibbils the Program Director at DAU.
DAU stresses the importance of physical activity while finding ways to encourage the young dancers' spirit as well. When asked about the positive effects dance can have on children, DAU's Artistic Director, Jane Carter, says, "We all want happy, healthy and successful children - we believe dance can play an important role". Currently, DAU is registering new students for 2013. Those who enroll before February 28 will also have the opportunity to participate in the school's dance recital on June 15 and 16.
