Midwest Elite Dance Center is providing students with an exciting performance experience through its June recital. The recital is a very important part of the dance season. It’s a chance to shine in front of family and friends that the students anticipate with nervous excitement. The recital offers our students a professionally directed performance that allows them to present to their family and friends the results of this year’s hard work, dedication, and progress. A big part of the dance training process includes learning through performance. The experience helps build self-esteem, self-assurance, and contributes to a sense of confidence. Although performance opportunities can help prepare some students for a possible career in dance, they also contribute to children’s success in non-dance activities. Participating in onstage experiences can result in better in-school presentations, improved social skills, and strong interview skills for future college or job opportunities. The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps the children develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result.
