Is dance good for athletes?

Yes!  Dance and sports often complement each other quite well!

Dance helps with:
Agility
Fast footwork
Flexibility
Balance
Focus
Commitment
Teamwork

Our friends at Kick Dance Studio in New Jersey (a fellow More Than Just Great Dancing ™ studio) say it perfectly in their blog post:  http://patch.com/new-jersey/rumson/5-reasons-trade-your-childs-cleats-dance-shoes-sports-season

Although the dance season is longer than many sports seasons, it’s not always “too late” to join — just ask!  At SDC, we have some classes still accepting new students through November, and we add in new classes periodically throughout the year.
