Recitals Boost Confidence!
Participating in the recital can boost a child’s confidence in so many ways! After working hard in class for months—learning steps, memorizing choreography, practicing musicality—the act of performing onstage serves as the great culmination of all that effort.
Hearing the audience applaud (and knowing family and friends are there!) show the dancers that they are being appreciated for their demonstrating their skills and performance quality. Ask any of the BPA faculty, and you’ll hear similar experiences: it is such a rewarding feeling to realize that your hard work has paid off, and that the audience loved your performance!
Over the years at BPA, we’re proud to say that many students have overcome their shyness, anxiety, and stage fright by participating in the recital. The sense of accomplishment after getting out there and performing is a triumphant feeling like no other, and we’ve seen it transform lives.
Dance is the ultimate performing art, and it serves as a powerful tool for building a child’s confidence in themselves—a confidence that easily carries over into a dancer’s home life, schoolwork, and friendships.
