What to look for in an excellent combo ballet-tap dance class.

  • Look for non-competitive ballet and tap dance classes where everyone is friendly and your child will always feel welcome.
  • Look for a class where the teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for your child.
  • Look for dance studios with specially designed 'sprung' wood floors that 'give' to protect their feet and ankles. Avoid studios with regular wood floors and heaven to bid, run away from dance studios with concrete floors.
  • Look for accommodating school policies like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason. Look for clean, bright sunlit studios.
  • Most importantly look for a school that has expert dance teachers who know how to give your child personalized attention so they will progress faster.

"Young children do not understand competition. We encourage students to first discover their 'best self' and not to compare themselves to others who may have more or less natural ability."
