Why Choose Us?

Read this before choosing a dance studio!

How do you know which studio is right for you?

There are 3 main things that can make a huge difference in the quality of instruction your child receives and the overall enjoyment and satisfaction of being involved in a dance program.

1. 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 the dancer. The best way to prevent against potential injury is by choosing a studio with a professional dance floor. A floor that absorbs the shock of jumping is ideal.Our studio has a resilient state-of-the-art Neo-shock AGA Maple Floor System. Neo-Shock disks are placed 6 inches apart below two layers of wood which crisscross and a final top layer of Maplewood. This floor is one of the safest dance floors available and is used in universities across the country. It is covered with Stagestep PVC vinyl with PVC closed cell high-density foam backing. Our upstairs studio has a sprung floor with a Rosco Adagio Floor Covering. All of our dance floor coverings are designed to allow dancers to slide with a degree of "controlled slip" but are not slippery so there are less risk of slips and falls.

2. What is the size of the class?

If a 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.Our smaller class sizes make sure that no fundamental concepts are being missed. A smaller class size also allows our teachers to ensure that students are not developing bad habits or improper technique.

3. What is the quality of dance training at the studio?

Some studios use teen students as instructors. Others use a person who has taken dance lessons but has never been taught to teach. Often students are instructed to do steps before they are physically ready which can lead to bad habits or injury. Some studios do not have a graded system or curriculum to teach students steps in the proper order.All of our teachers are adults who have been trained to teach students in a graded system . This provides students with the proper foundation to reach their goals. Our teachers also attend Dance Seminars and workshops to bring fresh ideas and innovation to their teaching methods which enhance the training their students receive. We provide a nurturing, fun and safe environment for our students.
