THE SUMMER STRIDE
Summer is just around the corner and here at YPAC, we are putting the finishing touches on all our fantastic summer program offerings!
With the current academic season winding down and the new season ramping up, you might have been wondering lately if summer stay strong classes are right for your child. From our experience, every student has the potential to hit their “summer stride” … in other words, they all have the ability to keep their learning power going in the summer, without losing any momentum gained the entire year! In fact, it COMPOUNDS over the summer and where students gain the most improvement.
We believe there is a unique benefit for each and every student who stays strong with us in the summer, whether it’s during a weekly class, a camp, or an intensive workshop. Read on to see which advantages might be in store for your child!
- Making Progress
Because the arts are built on muscle memory, summer study can help your child fine-tune their movement and mental vocabulary and technique, allowing them to improve their skills, grow stronger, and be better prepared to take on new material.
- Being Consistent
Young children do well with stability in their routine, so maintaining that normalcy with summer classes can give them (and you!) peace of mind, even as the rest of your summer plans may vary.
- Getting Motivated
After the YES, we find that some students are eager to try a new dance style (usually something they were inspired by!) to see how they like it. Summer is THE perfect time to test out those new interests, without a long commitment.
- Gaining Confidence
Our summer programs, with their blend of both structure and fun, can give your child the boost they need to jump into fall classes feeling good about themselves. There’s nothing quite like the personal development that can be built in the summer!
It’s part of our mission to ensure that your child is learning how to balance their hard work with time off, and the summer offers the best of both worlds. We encourage all of our students to make time for rest and relaxation, and also make time to keep their bodies strong and minds engaged. This balance is what the true summer stride is all about!
There’s something for everyone here this summer at YPAC. We’re happy to help you customize the right schedule for your family or make a special recommendation for your child … just ask!
