Dancing is a highly physical activity and kids who take dance lessons regularly should expect to see a significant improvement in their overall physical health. Regular dance practice can increase your child's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength, and stamina. The repetitive movements involved in dance can improve muscle tone, correct poor posture, increase balance and coordination.
Salsa Explosion Dance Company has been a wonderful community that we are so thankful to have found. Ana is creative and amazingly skilled at helping children of all ages learn discipline, gain confidence, and most importantly have fun. My girls look forward to dance class each week, and it’s amazing to see the transformation in their abilities. I love that they can express their individuality and wear what they want to class, and the costumes and opportunities to perform have been incredible. I hope my daughters continue to dance through life with the skills and confidence they gain in salsa.
I have both my daughters taking classes at SEDC kids. They love it! Not only have they both had so much fun, but it has also been a great opportunity for them to see what can happen when you practice and stay committed to something. The Salsa Congress they host every year has exposed my daughters to professional dancers and seeing them dance on stage mesmerized my daughters. Ana is a great teacher who makes the children feel safe and have fun. Her assistant teacher Cheyanne too is wonderful with the children and they adore her as well.
My son Valentino has been dancing with Ana at Salsa Explosion Dance Company (SEDC) since 2017. Even though he is only 10 years old now, his dance abilities have improved tremendously. Ana worked with him preparing solo, duo, boys' trio and coed group routines. His confidence not only as a dancer but self-esteem in general has increased tremendously over the past 3 years. Valentino's posture, as well as range of motion have improved. As a parent I have worked with the dance instructor to promote creativity and enhance emotional development in my son. Ana goes above and beyond to accomodate the very unique needs of my child. Valentino's overall health status and physique have been enhanced too. I believe that dancing has made a huge positive difference in my son's life pertaining to persevere, discipline and work ethic. I highly recommend Ana and her team at SEDC to anyone who is considering dance placement for their own child/ren.
