The age old saying, "Actions speak louder than words," is true in many cases. But it's especially true when it comes to teaching children about good sportsmanship. Being a good sport means treating others with respect and displaying a positive attitude. This can be as simple as shaking hands with opponents before and after a game or acknowledging good plays made by others during play. Whether win, lose, or draw, real winners focus on the most important aspect of playing the game- having fun.Children learn by example and by matching the actions of role models like you. Here are some ways you can help your child develop the habit of being a good sport:
Displaying good sportsmanship may not always be easy. But the benefits will carry through into every other aspect of life. Children that learn to be good sports understand the value of a positive attitude, respect for others, leadership, and empathy. And that's a winning play in any parent's playbook.

A Hip New Dance Program is Rollin' Out!
We’re changing up the beat and introducing two new Hip Hop classes! Hip Hoppers will introduce fun and funky moves to kids 4-6 years old and Hip Hop Steppers will allow kids 6-12 years old to really get in the groove with more advanced skills.
Both classes combine the best parts of Hip Hop and Gymnastics to put a fresh spin on some old-school moves! The class is half dance, half gymnastics. Kids will be exposed to jazz and Hip Hop styles, learning specific moves and exploring creative freestyle dance. They will even have the chance to choreograph and interpret their own self-expressive moves, dancing their way to a more confident groove!
Ready to join the dance crew? Hip Hoppers (4-6 years old) classes start February 8th and Hip Hop Steppers (6-12 years old) classes start March 4th. Click here to see our class schedule.
