Why DanceWorks Dance Studio is Different

  • If most dance studios seem to have qualified, friendly teachers, experience with teaching children, and a big show at the end of the year, aren’t they all pretty much the same? Does it really matter which place you decide to enroll at?
  • Yes it does. There are 4 main things that can make a huge difference in the quality of instruction your child receives, the amount of extra work and hassles the parents deal with, and the overall enjoyment and satisfaction of being involved in a dance program. Here are 4 things every parent should consider before deciding on a dance studio for their child.

4 Things Every Parent Should Know About Dance Schools

  • WHAT TYPE OF DANCE FLOOR IS USED?

    Dance is a very physical activity that requires a lot of jumping, which can put stress on bones and joints. Most dance footwear does not provide any cushioning or support, so the shock of dance movement can place a lot of pressure on the knees and back of a dancer. The best way to prevent against potential injury is by choosing a studio with a professional sprung floor covered with Marley to prevent slipping.These floors help reduce the risk of injuries and allow students to dance longer without getting tired. Five of our six floors at DanceWorks have these floors, which give as the students move on them. Out tap room has a floating floor subsystem with hard wood.

  • 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 when there are fewer students per class. Our studio limits our classes (ages 6-12) to a maximum of just 12 students per class. With our younger classes (ages 3-5) we limit all of our classes to a maximum of just 10. We also have an assistant program in which our senior students demonstrate and assist in classes, which provides the teacher with more opportunity to watch and correct the students.

  • WHAT ARE THE “ EXTRAS “ REQUIRED FOR THE YEAR END SHOW?

    Most studios put on a year end show at an outside venue. Students that perform in the show must have a costume for their dance number. Some studios may require parents to sew their child’s costumes, or pay extra, and the parents must find a seamstress to do the sewing. This can be inconvenient and frustrating for parents who are busy or can’t sew. Our studio orders costumes ready made so parents do not have to worry about any costume hassles and any alterations required are done for you and included. Most studios also require parents to purchase tickets separately for the performance. Our studio also gives each parent 5 free tickets and a dvd of the show included with your showcase fee.Extra tickets can be purchased for a minimal amount.

  • CAN I GET ASSISTANCE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE?

    Conveniently order and purchase shoes, tights and dancewear all in one location. We have office staff on hand during all class times Monday through Thursday and Saturday mornings to answer your questions. All of our information is posted, with extra copies always available.
