Brain Dance
Maddox Dance Company, or MDC, is dedicated to providing programs to young families that educate parents about the importance of movement and the effect movement has on the brain and early development. In addition to the company’s desire to share knowledge about a child’s early years, we are also interested in making dance an accessible emotional outlet and or physical activity for people of all abilities. We do this by providing a curriculum that is exploratory and playful, where mirrors are not necessary and individuality is key.

Playing to learn

when life gets too busy

through movement and dance

& learning to play

Dancing improves strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular strength. Dance increases energy and serotonin. Dance improves mood and reduces depression. Dance exercises our mind and provides opportunity for quick decision making. So I know life is busy, but we should always make time to dance!     
Dance is a powerful art form that can communicate ideas that speech does not have the capacity to express. Even the simplest of movements can express deep emotion, portray certain personality traits or engage audiences in profound thought. Movement is powerful.       
When we include seeing, feeling, smelling, tasting, and hearing into our learning experiences, our brain is able to grasp onto new concepts faster and remember them longer. If we add our proprioceptive sense (body awareness) into the mix, the learning possibilities are heightened even further.
