Dance

All year Round Favourite Activities

In addition to being a physical activity, dancing is also a highly social activity. Dance can help children improve their social and communication skills, learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends.

The repetitive movements involved in dance can:

  • Increase flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina
  • Improve muscle tone
  • Correct poor posture
  • Increase balance and coordination
  • Improve overall cardiovascular health

At West Midlands Sports Development we follow national governing body recommendations.

  • We ensure Coaches are suitably qualified i.e. hold at least a UKCC Level 2 coaching award. 
  • All coaches should have attended a sports coach UK Safeguarding & Protecting Children course or an equivalent child protection course.
  • All coaches and club personnel working directly with children are Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) checked.
  • All coaches are monitored of in their role to ensure they maintain the high standards of coaching practice.
