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!
