IMportant Things To Consider When Choosing A Dance Studio
If most dance studios seem to have qualified, friendly teachers, experience teaching children, and a big show at the end of the year, aren't they pretty much the same? Does it really matter which place you decide to enroll? Yes, there are six 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 must deal with and the overall enjoyment and satisfaction of being involved with a dance program. Here are six things that every parent should consider before deciding on a dance studio for their child.
- Floor/Mirrors/Studio Space
Dance is a very physical activity that can put stress on the bones and joints. It is important to choose a studio that has appropriate flooring to take care of a dancer's body. Having wood floors that can absorb the shock on the body is the best way to prevent injury. At our studio, we offer raised wood flooring with a marley covering. The wood absorbs the shock and the marley covering is accepted worldwide for recreational and professional dance use. The professional flooring provides dancers with a degree of "controlled slip," so there is less risk of slips and falls. Each room also contains full length mirrors, running the length of the room, allowing students to correct their technique and performance. These mirrors have safety features to prevent shattering if cracked. Our large studios also give dancers the space to extend their bodies and leap higher with no constraints.
- Quality of Teachers & Class Size
Triple Threat requires teachers to be certified and university trained or to have professional performance experience. In some studios unprofessional and inexperienced teachers are allowed to teach class. When this happens, your child is not receiving the best instruction available. Class sizes are important as well. Some studios allow such large classes that your child cannot get the attention they need and deserve. With our limited class sizes, our professional staff can give more pesonalized attention.
- All Ages & All Levels
At out studio we are able to place your child in a class with students their age and ability, from the beginning through advanced student, ages 2 - adult. Many studios offer classes for all ages, but unable to offer classes for students of all ages and levels.
- Customer Service
When teachers and owners try to teach and do the adminstrative work as well, the classes, students and parents suffer. The focus is not always in the classroom. For you and your child to have a good experience, it is important to choose a studio that offers you assistance in any further details like costumes and schedules. Our studio has office staff on hand to help you with your immediate needs.
- Performance Opportunities
Most studios have only the year end performace or give students other performance opportunities with competition teams. Students who love to dance, sing, act, or play an instrument may feel left out and ignored when competitive teams are the only performance outlet. Our studio offers a "Benefit Performance" along with other performance opportunities.
- End of Year Performance (Recital)
Instead of only offering one End of The Year Performance for each student, like most studios, Triple Threat School of Dance, Music, and Acting allows students ages 9 and up to perform more than one night in order to build their performace abilities and self-confidence. Each student receives four free tickets for the End of The Year Performance. Also, it will be clear when your child performs, what they have to learn and improve on. We have a lot of backstage help to give parents the opportunity to sit back and enjoy their children on stage.
