    The study of dance has multiple benefits to students beginning with the physical; students that take part in dance show improvement in cardiovascular conditioning, flexibility, coordination, and strength. Intellectually and artistically, students that study dance show an increase in their artistic awareness, creativity, music and rhythmic expression, imagination and are more innovative in their approaches to problem solving. These students routinely work as part of a team and must collaborate with other students when performing which increases body-space awareness and spatial development.
