The health profession recommends regular, moderate to vigorous physical activity for teenagers. It is suggested that at least 30 - 60 minutes of physical activity for children is beneficial on a daily basis. Physical activity from a very early age is valuable for both the physical and mental health of children. With the rise in popularity of video games and technology, very few children are meeting this criteria. This has lead to many children being overweight, which effects them both physically and mentally. In order to address to this problem, schools and performing art academies are taking steps to introduce more physical activity among children for better physical, mental and academic results.
From a very early age, institutions are now promoting sports and performing arts, in the hope to encourage children to engage in physical activities. Although the physical benefits of being active are important, these activities foster other attributes that will be useful for them throughout their lives. Teenagers are being encouraged to take part in these activities, to allow them to understand the value of teamwork and collaboration among their peers, to promote self expression, increase their ability to focus and to improve their confidence and self-esteem.
Dance is a new and exciting form of physical activity that schools are now offering, as it is deemed as more interesting to the students. Classes aimed at teenagers with no experience are being offered, to allow all teenagers the opportunity, regardless of their skill level. Beginner ballet classes for teenagers are becoming more popular and are fostering healthy lifestyles among young students, helping them to improve their focus and balance for their bodies. These beginner classes give the teenager a platform to try something new, where they don’t feel threatened be-cause all the participants have a similar skill level.
Dance Academies understand the importance of physical activity and have formulated programs that are well-suited for teenagers wanting to learn ballet with little or no experience. The skill level in these ballet classes is that of a beginner for the age group 16 and above. The classes comprise of center floor exercises where beginner ballet barre work is the main focus. Emphasis is placed on the development of strength, artistry and flexibility among the participants, starting with building a good foundation, then progressing towards perfection.
