Furthermore, the process of choreography and mastering dance techniques boosts self-confidence and self-esteem as students gain a sense of accomplishment. Dance also enhances concentration and focus, improving cognitive abilities, and students stay focused in other areas. Additionally, dance provides for emotional expression, enabling students to explore their emotions, ideas, and creativity.
