5 things you should know when choosing a dance studio.

Here are a few important factors that can make a huge difference in the quality of instruction either you or your child will receive.  Considering these basic guidelines when choosing a dance studio will help you achieve the overall satisfaction and enjoyment found within a dance program.
1. WHAT IS THE TEACHING STAFF’S BACKGROUND?
A teacher’s education and experience should demonstrate a commitment to safety, professionalism, and ongoing education. Our studio highly values the quality of instruction provided to our students. Each instructor has been specifically selected to teach classes based on their area of expertise and training. Our faculty loves what they do and is fully committed to your development and training. Our teachers work professionally and bring their expertise and knowledge to the classroom. The Studio’s owner danced professionally for 10 years in California and New York prior to moving to Colorado.

2. IS THERE A WELL-DESIGNED CURRICULUM IN PLACE?

Dance is a very technical form of art.  A well-designed curriculum should both challenge and inspire the beginner to the most seasoned dancer.  This balance between a challenging, yet inspiring program must contain proper technique, sequence, and terminology at all levels.  The mixture of fun, creativity, energy, and the proper music are also big factors when determining if a program has been designed for optimal learning and enjoyment.

3. CAN I GET IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE?

In many studios the teacher conducts classes and does the administration. By trying to do two jobs at once, the class may suffer as the teacher has to use class time for customer service issues, or the studio may have no customer service available if the teacher is in class. To have a good experience it is important to choose a studio that can assist you with details like costumes or schedules, even if a teacher is occupied in a class. Our studio has office staff on hand during all regular class times, so you can get immediate assistance.
4. WHAT IS THE SIZE OF THE CLASS?

If the dance class has fewer students in it each child will receive more personalized attention, learn more, and have more fun. With younger students it is easier for a teacher to maintain control over the class and make sure each student understands the concepts and instructions presented. You will commonly find that most studios do not limit the number of students per class.
Our smaller class sizes make sure that no fundamental concepts are being missed. A smaller class size also allows our teachers to ensure that students are not developing bad habits or improper technique. Our studio limits all of our classes (ages 7 and up) to a maximum of just 12 students per class. With our younger aged classes (4-6 years) held at a maximum of 10 and ages 2-3 held at a maximum of 6 students.
5. WHAT ARE THE EXTRAS FOR THE YEAR-END SHOW?

Most studios put on a year-end show in a professional auditorium. Parents can be affected with extra work and expenses for making or altering the costumes. Our studio has a fixed rate for the year-end costumes so you know from day one how much your costume will be. We also sew and alter our professional dance costumes with a complimentary tailor provided free before the year-end show. This makes the year-end costume hassle-free for the parents who are busy or can’t sew.
