Why Should Children Ballroom Dance?

Ballroom dancing is the unique atmosphere where boys and girls come together in duos that essentially aid in constructing their lifestyles of sport and true gracious character.

Why Should Children Ballroom Dance?


Ballroom Dancing is one of the only arenas of sport and art that incorporates physical strength with the importance of becoming a true gentleman in life. DanceSport, competitive Ballroom Dancing, builds and combines the true elements of sport, including endurance, stamina, bodily strength, flexibility, power, and speed, with the important teachings of graciousness and gentleness towards others, especially females.

These teachings build the character that transforms young boys into young gentlemen who carry these traits of self-confidence and selflessness throughout the rest of their lives.


Ballroom dancing is the discipline of dance that truly transforms each young girl into a true young lady of feminity, kindness, care, and beauty that radiates from the inside out. Aside from her growing up physically active and healthy in terms of sport preparation, she will also learn how to take care of herself in terms of physical appearance, how she speaks, how she moves, her gestures, as well as how she acts in respect to others. This is where girls learn to genuinely and honestly respect themselves.

No Partner, No Problem

DSS offers the chance for any student to compete. Children without a competitive partner can compete either with one of our DSS instructors at competitions or solo as individual dancers. DSS can also aid in partner search for solo competitive dancers looking to form a couple.

DSS Competitive Age Groups

  • Tots (5 - 6 years of age)
  • Juvenile I & II (7 to 10 years of age)
  • Junior I & II (11 to 15 years of age)
  • Youth (16 to 18 years of age)
  • Adult (19 years of age and up)

DSS Training Structure

The interests of each student comes first.

Our DSS Kids Programs are structured by The Art of DanceSport Training System.

Children as early as 4 years may begin classes. Children ages 3 and under may have the chance to also attend, but first must be approved by DSS instructors.

When first signing up your child, you will decide what path of training you would like for your child to engage in. After selection, we will then explain the method of training that will correspond to your selection for the best benefits of your child and his or her progress.

Your selection will result in a personalized training plan for your child. Each child will progress through our levels of proficiency, regardless if he or she will decide to engage in competition. He or she will progress through milestones and achieve goals that will indicate his or her progress in training.

Each child will graduate through each proficiency level. Competition is available at any level of proficiency. National and international competitions and training camps can be planned for future goal milestones for our DSS competitive team as well.
