Dance4Life is traveling to MARS on board of Perseverance Mars Rover built by NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida! Three fingernail-sized chips pictured here affixed to the upper-left corner of the placard feature the name Dance4Life!

The Benefits Of Dance For Kids

05 December, 2018 / Rebecca Lake

If you have kids, you may be wondering what is the best way to channel their seemingly boundless energy. While traditional team sports are a good way to get your kids physically active, they may not be right for younger children. Dance classes are a great alternative to team sports, and most studios offer lessons for children as young as two or three. Participating in dance classes can be beneficial for kids of all ages...

Why Dancesport For Your Child?

01 November, 2018 / Dancesportnews

Several years ago I was invited to write about our experience as parents of a child who has danced Dancesport since he was 5 years old. I wrote this article for the BAILE PASSION magazine in an enthusiastic way, trying to modestly contribute «something» to the world of dance, but from the perspective -unique that I can exercise in this field- of a father overturned with his dancing son...

Спортивный Характер Конкурсного 

Бального Танца

16 Июля, 2017 / DanceSportGlobal

Конкурсные бальные танцы — искусство или спорт? Этот вопрос не раз звучал в интервью со многими танцевальными парами. Однако он утратил актуальность после признания Международным Олимпийским Комитетом (МОК) Международной Федерации Танцевального Спорта (IDSF, ныне WDSF) полноправным членом МОК, что определило спортивный характер бального танца. В этой статье обсуждается значение термина “спорт”, применимого в анализе конкурсного бального танца, без акцента на его художественной составляющей...

11 Причин, Почему Мальчики Никогда Не Должны Заниматься Бальными Танцами

DanceHall, Kiev

Не секрет, что клубы спортивно-бального танца, как место для занятий ребенка, сейчас более популярны среди родителей девочек, нежели среди родителей мальчиков. Последние (почему-то) считают танцевальный спорт чисто женским занятием и предпочитают отводить своих сыновей на «мужские» виды спорта.

И правильно! Есть куча причин, почему это так.

Действительно, кому вообще надо эти танцы. А вместе с ними – умение красиво и гармонично двигаться практически под любую музыку...

3 Main Differences Between a Coach and a Teacher

4 July, 2019 / Matteo Del Gaone

In our sport, we usually refer to the people with whom we take lessons as either “coaches” or “teachers”. Have you ever asked yourself, “Is there any difference between the two?” In this article, I will discuss the differences between a coach and a teacher...

Why Dance Is Just As Important As Math At School..

Mar 21, 2018 / Sir Ken Robinson + Lou Aronica

Dance — and physical activity — should have the same status in schools as math, science and language. Psst: it may even help raise test scores, says Sir Ken Robinson.

For several years, I’ve been a patron of the London School of Contemporary Dance. In 2016, I was invited to give the annual lecture in honor of founding principal Robert Cohan, and I decided to talk about the role of dance in schools...
