A Teen Leadership Program
Adam's 20-years of teaching dance has yielded some interesting insight and powerful perspective on connecting with others -- both on and off the dance floor. He's created a unique program that weaves communication, social, and leadership skills into the timeless life skill that is dance.
Owner, Adam King, introduces real world practical applications for necessary concepts to be a strong leader. Teens will learn the importance of taking the first step as a key principle of leadership, having a clear vision, moving confidently in the direction of their vision, creating a positive presence, the importance of initiating, and countless other principles -- all taught on the backdrop of partner dance.
There are a significant amount of benefits that learning to dance provides. Learning to dance increases one’s confidence, self-esteem, and self-respect. Because dancing is social, it creates the opportunity for making lasting and meaningful connections with others through a mutually enjoyed activity. Dancing also promotes the use of good manners, encourages positivity, teaches us patience, and influences healthy communication.
Dancing has countless physical benefits as well. Since dancing is an athletic activity, teens will experience improvements in their balance, coordination, and posture. As a low-impact aerobic activity, dancers can boost their metabolism, heart health, lung capacity, and muscular endurance when participating regularly. Increased flexibility and range of motion are also powerful benefits.
