Qualified Teachers. Just as all dance studios are not alike, neither are all dance studio instructors. Your child’s future success as a dancer depends on those who invest and teach your child today. It is best to begin good technique from the start; bad habits learned at a young age are extremely hard to break.
Do your research. Check the dance studio’s website, find the faculty and staff biographies and look for their qualifications. Make sure the instructor holds a degree in dance, is certified to teach dance, or has danced with a professional company. Ideally, you’ll want the instructors to have professional performing experience in addition to teaching experience. All of this will dictate an instructor’s expertise and ability to prepare students for dance and giving your student a good foundation to build upon.
