Whoever said that ballroom dancing is only for teens and adults simply hasn’t seen what kids can do, especially with the proper training. Ballroom dancing, which is a great example of movement and music, is not just enjoyable for the younger ones. Their brains get engaged and their communication skills are improved. It helps them with self-expression, contributes to their imagination and creativity, not to mention the apparent physical gain.
Here are three of the best ballroom dance classes offered in Hong Kong for your toddlers, kids, and teens.
Have you ever heard of multi dance? If you haven't, you don't know what you're missing. Move for life teaches multi dance - it's a combination of several dances - hip hop, contemporary, prop dance, k-pop, Latin, jazz, to name a few. They believe that teaching a child just one dance is like having one subject in school. Through multi dance, the child will develop exponentially. Another great thing about multi dance is that the child gets a taste of each type of dance and can eventually pursue one that they prefer in the future. The variety of movements for the younger kids is also a plus.
They have different programs and schedules depending on your kid's age. Little Movers is from walking age to 6 years, which is further divided into Blueberries (walking to 2.5 years, accompanied), Mangoes (2 to 5 years, unaccompanied), Strawberries (4 to 6 years). The Junior class is from 6 to 9 years and the Senior one is 8 to 12 years.
Aside from these classes, they also offer Holiday Camps and Kids Parties. Book a trial class and find out what everyone is raving about! Click here to find out more!

The brainchild of professional dancers, Katya Virshilas and Klaus Kongsdal, BallroomBees uses a play-based technique in teaching their dance classes. Katya is a dance celebrity - she appeared in BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing (Dancing With The Stars) and performed in the theatre while her husband, Klaus judges major ballroom dancing competitions.
The classes in BallroomBees are multi-disciplinary and do not just focus on one dance. Their program is one-of-a-kind to nurture a child’s all-around development through dance. For example, a great aspect that's developed through ballroom dance is the social interaction between dance partners. Children learn all about partnership, etiquette, and teamwork that helps build self-confidence and mutual respect.
Five different classes are grouped according to age. BabyBees, for kids aged 1.5 to 2.5 years, is geared toward familiarizing the children with the BallroomBees class structure. Next is the GrowingBees, 2.5 to 4 years, where the kids get their first taste of ballroom dancing through the introduction of etiquette and social skills with simple play-based exercises. HoneyBees, 4 to 6 years, and SuperBees, 6 to 8 years, are both the time the children learn the steps of ballroom dancing and improve their posture. And lastly, the MightyBees, 8 to 11 years, often holds seasonal performances.
