2. Children's bodies are constantly changing and growing. They are learning about themselves and the world through their bodies. With simple and varied movements (rolling, twisting, bending, stretching and more!), children are able to improve their psychomotor skills as they develop greater body awareness and better body control, coordination and balance, in addition to physical strength and stamina.
This in turn, piques their curiosity about their abilities, reduces their fear and increases their self-confidence. Creative movement also prepares children well for learning and practising other forms of dance, due to the range of movement and qualities that children will have experienced and practised through creative movement. Their full-bodied dancing in creative movement can support further specialisation in contemporary dance, classical dance forms, hip hop, jazz, etc.
