If the 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.
For preschool dance, our studio limits classes for (ages 1½ – 3) to a maximum of just 7 students per class, and for (ages 4 – 6) we limit Ballet classes to a maximum of just 10 students per class, and Hip Hop Jr. to a maximum of 12 per class. All of our dance classes (ages 6 – 12) we limit to a maximum of just 13 students per class, and classes (ages 13 & up) have maximum of 13 students per class.
Enabling a student to get more individual instruction from a teacher results in greater progress over a shorter period of time. Capping our class sizes also ensures that the teacher can catch problems before they turn into bad habits or improper technique.
