Dance lessons teach children respect and discipline. It helps to build social awareness in children, so they not only learn how to dance; they also learn how to respect one another. The maturity necessary to dance together fosters respect, civility, teamwork, confidence and a sense of joy, accomplishment and achievement. Their posture and confidence improves and awkwardness is replaced with physical grace & poise. It is also an incredible low-impact sport to help children build better cardiovascular and muscular health.
Junior Ballroom & Latin - Ages 5-10
Wednesday & Friday: 5:00 pm - 5:45 pm
Pre-registration required. You can register by calling us, or purchasing a class below.
Junior classes teach some of the most popular ballroom dances. The children will develop basic technical skills in a fun and supportive group environment. This program focuses on musicality and partnering while building confidence in Cha-Cha, Waltz, Jive, Quickstep, and many more. These dance classes are a stepping stone towards competitive dancing, or dancesport, and are a great confidence builder.
We recommend youth wear modest street clothes or athletic attire that they're comfortable moving in. Students do not need to wear leotards/tights, but something relatively form-fitting is helpful for ensuring correct movement and body alignment.
Shoes are the most important part of dance attire: choose shoes that support your child's heel and have a leather sole. Ballet or Jazz shoes work very well and are available for purchase at the studio. As your child's dancing progresses, you will want to consider purchasing a pair of ballroom dance shoes, which have a flexible suede sole, and are designed to give the dancer better control and maintain correct body alignment.
For dancers with special interests or a desire to learn more slowly or more quickly than in group classes, private lessons are a great option. Youth private lessons are available in all styles of partner dance for students ages 5 - 17. Styles include International Latin, American Rhythm, International Standard, American Smooth, Club Latin (Salsa, Bachata, etc.), Swing, Argentine Tango, Country Western, etc.
Students interested in performance and/or competition opportunities should talk with their instructor for more information on requirements, options, and pricing. Instructors regularly take students to competitions, both local, national, and international, and Glow Academy also offers performance opportunities at Showcases.
