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.

"My daughter had so much fun at dance camp last year - it was the highlight of her summer!  I was really impressed at the wide variety of dance styles (jazz, worship, ballet, tap, hip-hop) and performing arts (acting, musical theater, cheer and tumbling) that the girls were able to learn in such a short time.  The parent performance at the end of the week was a blast and my husband and I could hardly believe they had learned so much in just one short week.  We will definitely be coming back and can't wait to see what next summer has in store!  Thanks!"

As a parent, I have been very encouraged to see The Studio go to the competition world and take with it modest costuming, beauty, and purpose to dance.  It was so evident the differences between The Studio dancing/dancers as compared to those studios represented and because of this, we as Christians were bringing God's light and love to a dark part of our world.

My daughter says:  "I enjoyed going to Denver to compete with other dancers.  I thought the other dancers were really good and they made me want to become better myself.  I also enjoyed rehearsals with Miss Rachel. I LOVE dancing!"

The competition world has stretched my daughter in two ways.  First, she realized the differences between The Studio and the other dancers and she was able to see her mission to spread the light of Jesus to others who may not know Him through the communication of dance...this can be challenging and exciting at the same time.    And second, she saw some extremely talented dancers and she came home desiring to learn more, push herself, and become a better dancer herself.
