Healthy dance studios do the obvious. As a young dancer takes classes, children engage in an age-appropriate curriculum and develop more advanced technical skill year by year. Adult sexualized movement content is nowhere to be seen. Many excellent studios, educational institutions, and recreational dance facilities have technical goals that serve to advance a child to the next level. Age-appropriate dance studios don’t focus on having a certain body type; they don’t compare children negatively and they don’t value winning a competition above nurturing each student for their individual strengths.
