Did you know that recent studies have shown that singing and dancing aids learning development?
Psychology professor, Patricia Riddell, of the University of Reading reports that “singing and dancing with children has been shown to increase brain connectivity and benefits child-parent interactions.”
Singing is excellent for communication, language and literacy as well as giving children an early understanding of the world. Dancing is recognised as helping children in their social and emotional development as they interact with other children – as well as their physical fitness, creativity and coordination.
It is not only the child’s brain that benefits from these activities. “Parents who sing and dance with their children are creating a fun and relaxed space to interact. This improves communication and can help to relieve stress.”
A good reason for you all to sing out loud, dance your feet off and most importantly, to Go!Go!Go!
