First, be sure that your son is interested in dancing. If the answer is yes, find an appropriate dance guru for your kid who can help you understand which dance form is the best for your kid. If you are unable to find a guru, let your kid start with any format you want. But make sure wherever you enrol him in, the focus should be on body strengthening and flexibility. It is because as a kid, he must be having an amazing flexible body. If your kid keeps practising on body strengthening and flexibility, it will help him learn any form.

Let him learn whatever he likes, and when your kid grows older, he will find out by himself which forte he belongs to. Just make sure you give him options and let him choose and change according to his wish and comfort don't force anything.
