5 Things to Know Before Choosing a Dance Studio
1. HOW WILL MY CHILD'S LEVEL PLACEMENT BE DETERMINED?
Our studio places students in classes based upon their skill level and by age. To ensure each student is placed in the proper level, a FREE TRIAL lesson will be offered at which, the teacher will evaluate the student’s abilities and make recommendation after the class.
2. WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO THE INSTRUCTORS HAVE?
Parents are very impressed with the education and professionalism of our staff.
3. WHAT IS THE SIZE OF THE CLASS?
Our dance classes have fewer students and each child receives more personalized attention, learns more and has 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. Smaller class sizes assure no fundamental concepts are being missed and that students are not developing bad habits or improper technique. Our studios limit all lessons to only 12 students.
4. WILL COSTUMES AND MUSIC BE AGE APPROPRIATE?
Yes. Dance Kids Canada does not allow their students to dance to inappropriate music in the studio or on stage. In addition, choreography is neither allowed to be suggestive nor are the costumes. Many studios hide behind expensive flashy costumes rather than focusing on the choreography and training of their students. Our costumes are simple and designed to maintain focus on the dancers and what they have learned throughout the year.
5. CAN I GET IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE?
In many studios the teacher or the studio owner 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 a class. To have a good experience it is important to choose a studio that can assist you with details like 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.
