Dance Schools FAQ

There are many different types of dance schools catering for a range of ages and preferences. These include dance schools that deal with everything from tap and ballet to street dancing, freestyle, and ballroom dancing.

If you are thinking of signing up to a dance school - or perhaps signing a child up - then it is best to find out as much as you can before you get the enrolment underway. Some of the frequently asked questions that might help you include:

How will I know if the school I am considering is a good dance school?

You need to consider the qualifications of the dance teacher/s as well as the reputation of the school as a whole. Often, people choose schools based on recommendations from friends or family.

However, you can also go online and check reviews about any particular school you have in mind. Don't be afraid to ask about the teacher's qualifications to teach the particular type of dancing that you/your child will be learning - after all, it is important that the person who will be doing the teaching is adept in the art themselves.

Should I check the facilities first?

Yes, it is always a good idea to check out the dance school facilities before you enrol. You need to ensure that you/your child will be comfortable in the environment, and that the facilities are suited to your needs.

Most people choose a dance school that is relatively local, so it shouldn't be too much hassle to take a trip to see where you will be learning dance, and perhaps even meet the teacher.

What size will the dance classes be?

The size of the dance classes can vary based on the school that you choose and the type of dance that you will be learning. You should always check before enrolment with regards to the approximate size of the classes, as this can help to determine how much one on one attention you are likely to get from the teacher.

Can I attend a trial class before I sign up?

This will again depend on the dance school itself. However, most reputable schools will be happy for you to come in by arrangement to sit in on one of the classes. This is a great way of seeing how the classes work, how effective the teaching is, and how suitable the classes will be for your needs.

However, make sure that you contact the school first and make a firm arrangement to attend, as it could be very off-putting for other dance students if you just turn up at one of the classes and watch them as they perform!

Will it be expensive to attend dance school?

The cost of dance classes can vary depending on the school itself, the type of dance, etc. This is something that you should check before you sign up. You may find that some schools charge on a per lesson basis whereas others will charge for a specified period of time.
