    The article highlights the importance of dance performance in the Reggio Emilia pedagogical concept and introduces the dance education as part of the comprehensive learning that has a positive impact on every area of the child's development, i.e. the social and emotional, the cognitive and the psychomotoric one. In the article the parallels are drawn between Malaguzzi's theory on 100 languages of the child's expression, Gardner's theory on multiple intelligences and Glasser's theory on four basic human needs. The mentioned theories are linked to the objectives of the dance education in the kindergarten. Positive impacts of expressing through a move are referred to: developing creativity, non-verbal communication among children and between a child and an adult, use of all senses, expressing emotions and moods, raising physical awareness and fostering different forms of expression. The above mentioned are all important foundations of the Reggio Emilia pedagogical concept, the starting point of which is a child.
