Classes

The biggest key to deciding which class is best is allowing your child to be involved in the decision.

There are many forms of dance your child can experience. One child might love tap, clogging, or hip hop where as another child might be drawn to modern, lyrical, ballet, or jazz dance. The goal is to learn a little and enjoy the experience, initially, rather than to train up a professional dancer.

If your dancer is younger (3 and younger), they usually will cling to mom as they walk in the studio door, as they are unaware of their environment. Everything to them is new. We encourage families to arrive early on the first day in order to get them acclimated to their new teacher and environment. The younger classes are designed as a teacher/child class but there are always exceptions to the rules right? Mommy can participate if needed otherwise our policy is that all parents are in the observation hallways or lobby watching through the glass windows when class is in session. We do work with you and your child to achieve success in bringing happy dancers into the classroom without mom (other than mommy and me classes). This is a gradual process for some new dancers. Most of the time our little dancers come into the room right away and never look back. Sometimes our little dancers aren’t ready for a teacher/child class. As parents, we won’t know until we try. Sometimes it can even take a few weeks for the child to warm up to the idea, even if they LOVE to dance, but it can happen at the first class as well.

Older students will come in and get started right away. The teachers are always patient and treat each child with respect as they get to know them. We encourage parents to let their older dancers embrace their independence when it comes to their dance experience. Parents are always welcome to come stay and observe through the observation windows. We do find that our older dancers seem to enjoy the freedom that comes with being a dancer and being in a dance class. DanceArt is a safe, family environment and our current dance parents feel very comfortable dropping them off while they run errands or do other things if necessary. Sometimes with older dancers it may take time to try a few different classes to see what they enjoy the most and which instructor. All dance style and dance instructors are different so we like for our older students to feel like the class they choose is a great match! Feel free to ask about the different styles and teachers so that we can place them in the class that is best for them. Enjoy!

    The small child at dancing class may never become a professional dancer- but the courtesies and disciplines, as well as the joy in movement, will touch her forever. Helen Thomson, 1943

    The dancer believes that his art has something to say that cannot be expressed in words or in any other way than by dancing...there are times when the simple dignity of movement can fulfill the function of a volume of words. Doris Humphrey, 1937
