Oftentimes there are some students that do not have an emotional outlet, and dance is a solution. Words are often hard to comprehend, this is where action comes to play. Dancing is cathartic. Dance is a form of self-expression and messages. Using creativity, choreography and movements are formed to convey expressions, stories, and messages. 

Confidence &

Self Esteem

Teamwork

Part of dancing includes performing in front of an audience, either yourself or others. Performing in front of people is a challenge/risk but it is also a way to build confidence overtime. A dancer who has practice performing in front of audiences would develop high self-esteem, because after all no one should care what people think of you. Be who you are, not what they want you to be.

It allows for a collaborative effort along with bonding, promoting the importance of teamwork and develops the ability to work successfully in a group environment. Students choreograph together to create a piece that conveys a message they too may relate with.
