Share the benefits of dancing with your dancers and their families.
"Dancers communicate and express feelings through movement. The emotional and mental-health benefits of regular dancing include increased self-esteem and body image; reduced anxiety, depression, and stress. Dancing can improve mood by helping those who dance feel good through the release of endorphins in the brain. Dancing cultivates intrapersonal knowledge and self-confidence. Some dancers find it is a constructive way to channel their emotions." (Andrea Downie, 2015)
