Questions and Answers
How old does my child need to be to start dance lessons?
Preference is for children to start at age 5 and above. The age for entrance into classes or program varies from student and from class. This is based not only on age, but the student’s developmental level and skill
How do I know that my child is in the right class level?
Students should feel pushed in class but not overwhelmed. Most dancers will be in a class level for 2-3 years before moving to the next level. We are a small school so many classes are designed with that in mind.
You are a small school is my dancer receiving proper training?
Yes, because we are smaller we can focus on your child more than other places with large class sizes. This also allows us to make sure proper technique is being practiced. Our focus is on developing dancers that can perform their dance art cleanly, with ease and great skill.
Who makes the final decision where the student is placed?
Our teachers are well skilled to asses dancers ability and will make decisions about class placement.
May students start classes in the middle of the year?
Yes, students may enroll at any time; but preference is for the Fall in order to be ready to participate in the Spring recital.
This is my child’s first class, what do I need to purchase?
We offer shoes, tights, leotards and many other items for sale at the hall. Please see the teacher first for dress code info before making purchases.
We don’t have a lot of money to spend on dance attire?
Our pricing for dance attire is very reasonably priced. We also offer shoes and leotards that can be borrowed or exchanged as your dancer grows.
My child has special needs or has an injury, can they take class?
All are welcome to take class. We will train and work with any student to develop the proper technique for their own body and needs. Many injures are from improper technique, over stretching and over use. Many times fixing these will result in dancers that are pain free.
