Questions to ask 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 all pretty much the same? Does it really matter where you enroll your child? Yes. There are 4 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 4 things that every parent should consider before deciding on a dance studio for their child.

How can I help my child?

The Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE) suggests these tips for inspiring a young artist at home:

  • Sing together
  • Dance together
  • Draw together
  • Read together
  • Write together
  • Take photographs and talk about them together
  • Attend performances together
  • Enroll your child in after school or summer programs in the arts

If you are interested in the Arts your children will be too. The more your child sees artists in action and talks about the Arts the more ideas he or she will get about how to participate and contribute.
