We’ve all been there, some catchy tune comes on the playlist and next thing we know, we’ve caught ourselves involuntarily tapping along to the music. The deep, visceral enjoyment of music is innate to the human experience, so much that children show a predisposition to move rhythmically to music. Additionally, science has shown that preverbal children respond more to the rhythm and tempo of the music, and find it much more engaging, than speech. What does this mean? Dance is in our genes! #SmallBusinessThatRocks Dance Essence knows this to be fact, as owner and instructor, Katy Miller, combines our natural urge to move with the artistry, athleticism, and technical skills of dance. Our children are born to dance – let’s embrace it!
