Promil Pre-School Helps Pre-Schoolers Shine in Dancing

5:00 PM

Read this post to find out how you can win a Promil Pre-School gift pack!

Do you encourage your kids' dancing talents? Let me give you a pat on the back if you do! Most parents don't see the importance of honing dance skills in children. What they don't know is that dancing teaches kids a lot more besides how to move to the music. Promil Pre-School believes that the pre-school stage is the best time to nurture this gift. Moreover, apart from giving the essential nutrients needed during this time, it is also important for parents to develop their kids' talents.



Cecile Tamura, VP for Parents of the Philippine Association of the Gifted and mother of Promil kid Cy Tamura who, at the age of eight, composed his first musical libretto entitled The Magic Staff, strongly believes in multiple intelligence. Dancing is under bodily-kinesthetic intelligence which is as important as all the other intelligences (logical-mathematical, spatial, linguistic, musical, intrapersonal, interpersonal, naturalistic, and existential).

Kids who are fidgety (malikot) and do not excel in school may just be gifted kinesthetically. Gillian Lynne, choreographer of Cats and Phantom of the Opera in Broadway, was one such child. So was Isadora Duncan who is considered as the mother of modern dance. Mrs. Tamura is positive that dancing develops discipline and character in kids. Come to think of it, it does takes discipline to be able to master and memorize dance moves. Dance training also encourages self-confidence that will definitely be needed in the growing up years.

Regine Tolentino, actress, host, dancer, and dance instructor, supports this premise. In fact, she is a living testament that encouraging kids to dance helps make them be successful in the future. She believes that dancing and performing has trained her to be confident in speaking to other people. Of course, we know how excellent and spontaneous she is as one of the early Filipina MTV VJs and as TV host. She also taught her daughters to dance which is the reason why she set up her own dance studio. Now on its 9th year, the Regine Tolentino Dance Studio teaches students from four years old and up.

Before the event ended, I and the other attendees got a taste of how Regine teaches her students in the studio. I danced the ballet, hahaha! I'm glad that I did not make a booboo and fall on the floor!

Thanks to Women's Central for the photo!
I'm giving away two 180g boxes of Promil Pre-school plus 1 watercolor set to one lucky mommy/daddy! Just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget I embedded below. Good luck to everyone!

  2. How can you develop your child's talent in dancing?Initially I let my child develop his own liking by letting him watch dance routines on TV.  Later on, if he's really into that skill I may nurture it by enrolling him in professional dance school to further hone his talent.  Currently my son always tell me he is "Justin Bieber" while mimicking the dance moves.

  3. I need to show my kids that I myself is also interested in learning how to dance. I will teach them some of the dance moves I know and ask them what kind of dance do they like to learn. If they are really persistent then that is the time I will decide to enroll them to a professional instructor in dancing so that their talent be developed more.

  13. I will develop my child's interest and talent in dancing by exposing her to different classes like ballet dancing which is her fave.. I will spend quality dancing time with her, do the twirling and swaying with her.. this would also be a perfect bonding for both of us. She will  enjoy and learn more because we do it together :)

  14. Start with turning on the music and let them dance & feel the beat of music. But if they're shy to show it, i'll encourage my kids that they can also dance. Give them nice compliments, telling them that they dance better like real dancers. And the most important part is to join them dancing. =)

  15. I agree with the compliments. Kids always seek their parents' approval so it gives them confidence when you tell them how good they are.

    I can develop my child's talent in dancing by playing danceable music and of course, by dancing with him. As of now, he love the music of Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and the JUmp Brother of Eat Bulaga. I believe that by joining him while his dancing is a perfect bonding time for us. :)

  31. Support and encouragement are few of the keys to

    develop our kid's talents. Whether it is  

    dancing, singing, playing a musical instrument or

    any other talents or skills your child have. So

    for me, I always support my kid to do whatever

    she loves, and that is dancing. Whenever she

    dances, I cheer her up, dance with her, and tells

    her how good she dances. I just let dance and let

    her create her own steps that sometimes I end up

    following her steps. Without the support, and

    encouragement from the people they love

    especially their parents, no matter how good the

    music is, there's no fun at all. Us parents are

    also responsible in developing our kid's talents.

    So let's support them like the way I do to

    enhance my daughter Isha's dancing skills.

  32. I can help develop my daughter's talent in dancing by helping her awaken her childhood fascination with dancing and then wait until she is old enough to choos dance lessons for herself. That may be at four years old, or it may be at five years old so she can learn proper dance training.

    I should be the one to set an example even though i am not a good dancer i will see to it that my son will follow me first in the morning we will exercise by dancing with matching singing with some nursery rhymes so to be different my son loves singing nursery rhymes so to encourage him in dancing too. Then we will watch some DVD cartoon movies and programs in TV. As of now, we always watch Will time Bigtime by Willie Revillame and my son loves to imitate the dance moves of the dancers dancing the kending kending theme and he also loves me to see dancing it and we both laugh while dancing. lol

  37. How can you develop your child's talent in dancing?

    First you’ll need to encourage her/him to grow as much as possible so that your child can bloom to their full potential. second, Find a mentor in the community with the same talent that your son or daughter is displaying. Apart from parents, role models have a profound influence on the development of a special talent, and will be able to best encourage your child’s talent or skill to flourish. Additionally, if your child displays a creative talent, get him or her enrolled in community programs that will help that talent to flourish and grow.Create a supportive environment at home where your child can feel free to display his or her talent. For example, if your child is academically gifted, create a quiet study space to encourage maximum productivity; if your child is artistically or athletically inclined, encourage activities after school that will allow him or her to practice their talent.Your child will feel love and appreciation when you’re 100% supportive of their talent, no matter how messy or noisy it may be!
    Above all of these tips, be sure to praise and compliment your child for his or her special ability. For example, if your child paints you a fantastic picture or writes a song, praise his or her creative thinking and imagination.
    Praise is essential for producing the kind of confidence that encourages the blossoming of talent – so get ready to encourage your little Picasso or Dickens so that he or she will be able to realize the full extent of his or her special ability!
