    Cognitive & Psychosocial Development- Dance

    I was a part of a dance studio. I remember being sassy and loving every minute of dancing on stage. Our recitals were mostly held in the Salem High School Auditorium. Dance boosted my self-esteem and allowed me to make more friends outside of school (Psychosocial). Learning the skill is cognitive development.
