Kids competitive dance

Choosing a dance school for your child can easily become a daunting process. Will my child have fun? What makes a good facility? Am I being charged a fair price? These are a few of the questions that pop into a parent’s head. Read on to learn a few of the most important things to consider to make sure you’re picking the best dance school for you and your child.

Why Is Your Child Joining Dance?

The studio you pick may change depending on your child’s dance goals and dreams. If your child isn’t interested in competing, and looks at dance as a great way to be active and make friends, a more recreational studio may do the trick. However, if your child loves to dance and is looking to move up in the ranks, it’s important to find a studio that offers professional training.

What Styles of Dance Is Your Child Interested In?

It’s important to find a studio that offers the style(s) of dance that your child is interested in trying out! Finding a school that offers a wide range of classes can also be beneficial if your child is unsure about what they like, as it gives them a chance to try out a bunch of classes to see what suits them best.

Check Out Qualifications

Just because an instructor is an excellent dancer doesn’t meant they are necessarily an excellent teacher. If you’re going the competitive dance route, it’s a good idea to not only check out a teacher’s technical qualifications, but also check out the success of former students.

Read Reviews

Gain as much insight from others as possible – Facebook, Google, Yelp, and the like. Reviews are a great way to get a sense of the studio as a whole, from the teaching to the facility to the classes themselves.
